You’re The Life Of The Party…

…Everybody’s Host…

…Still You Need…

…All Your Good Time Friends…

…And Your Fair-Weather His-Beens…

…Lord Knows, Are Just Along For The Ride…

… … …
… … …

…You Think You’re A Survivor…

…But Boy, You’d Better Think Twice…

…No One Rides For Nothin’…

…So, Step-Up And Pay The Price…

… … …
… … …

…It’s The High Cost…

…Of Low Livin’…

…Ain’t It High Time…

…You Turn Yourself Around…

…Yeah, The High Cost…

…Of Low Livin’…

Honestly…

…I Don’t Think Much Has To Be Said About This Song…

HIGH COST OF LOW LIVING

by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…Other Than It’s An EXCEPTIONAL Jam.

Period.

Upon First Hearing This Album…

HITTIN’ THE NOTE

…In 2003…

…I Was Totally Blown Away.

I Still Say It’s Arguably In The Top 5 BEST ALBUMS Of This, The 21ST Century.

Period Period.

Each And Every Song Is Brought To Life With Pain-Staking Love And Attention.

The Lyrics Are Crushingly Amazing…

…And The Backing Music Is Right On-Par With Said Lyrics.

Talk About An Exceptionally Personal Ride We’re Being Treated To, Here.

You’ve Gotta Love It When An Artist Reaches Deep Down Inside Themselves And Then Brings Something, Like This Song, Out Into The World For All Of Us.

Love It.

Simply Love It.

You Should Give It A Listen.

I Think It’s One Of Those Jams That Should Be Heard By So Many More People.

It Totally Fell Under The Radar Of Most Folks…

…And That’s Just A Damned Shame.

The Whole Album Is Like This.

Such Personal Details.

Details About A Life Spent In Such A Manner That The Person Is Lucky To Still Be Alive.

I Get All Goose-Bumpy When I Hear Songs Like This One.

To Me…

…It’s THAT GREAT Of A Jam…

…As Are The Rest Of The Jams On This Album.

You Should Check-It-Out Sometime, My Peeps.

Like It Or Hate It…

…It’s An Easy Album To Appreciate, And That’s Fo SHO.

It’s Worth It.

Period Period Period.

Songs That (oddly but surely) Make Me Smile: “OLD BEFORE MY TIME” by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND (2003)

“…When I Was Younger

I Thought I’d Rule The World

It Was An Oyster At My Feet

Dancing To My Own Drum

Fishing Out The Pearls

Wish I Would Have Been Much More Discreet

I’ve Lived A Lifetime

Acting Out A Part

Its Been A Long, Uphill-Climb

Now All The Things That Used To Mean So Much To Me

Have Made Me Old Before My Time. …”

OLD BEFORE MY TIMEIs A Truly Amazing Jam From The 2003 AlbumHITTIN’ THE NOTEBy The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND !!!

While Some People Sincerely Feel This Song…

OLD BEFORE MY TIME

by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…Is Just Damned Depressing…

…I’ve Always Been Able To Derive My Own Pleasure From It.

More Than Anything, It Reminds Me Of My Father.

He’s A Rather Stout Fellow…

…And He Doesn’t Let Things Get To Him Like They Would Some Other Folks.

But This Song Can Almost Bring Him To Tears.

And It Does The Same To Me.

Not In A Bad Way, Though.

More Of A Highly Thoughtful And Contemplative Way.

Life Can Be Rather Crazy/Cruel/Odd/Quirky/Scary/Wonderful/Blissful/Etc Etc…

…And It’s Songs Like This One That Really Bring It All Into Perspective.

I Don’t Find This Song Depressing.

I Find It Oddly Uplifting.

It Really Could Be The Story Of My Life.

It Really Could Be The Story Of A Lot Of Our Lives.

Released In 2003…

HITTIN’ THE NOTE

…Is Very Likely My FAVE-FAVE Album From…

The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…Of ALL-TIME.

Yes, I Know…

…They’ve Been Around Since The 1960s…

…And Many People Would Say Their Best Work All Came Before The Death Of DUANE ALLMAN, The Former Lead-Guitarist.

And Perhaps That’s True.

But It’s Just Personal Opinion.

To ME…

…This Album Is Their Very Best Work.

It’s Crisp.

It’s Soulful.

It’s Amazingly Wonderfully Beautiful.

The Songs Simply Dig Deep Inside You And Make You Think About What’s Being Sung To You.

The Lyrics Are Absolutely PRICELESS.

Period.

If You’ve Not Heard Of The Album…

…Which I’m Sure A Lot Of Y’all Haven’t…

…Then I’d Suggest Making It Next On Your…

"I've Gotta Check This Out!"

…Music List.

You’re Not Likely To Find A Better Album Out There.

If You Trust Me At All, My Peeps, When It Comes To Music, Or Movies, Or Books, Or Whatever…

…Then PLEASE Trust Me Now.

I Sincerely LOVE Me Some…

ALLMAN BROTHERS

…And This Song…

OLD BEFORE MY TIME

…Is A Highlight Jam From A Truly Amazing Album.
