That time I asked Dickey Betts what his fave tune was on the new Allman Brothers album

By Steve Newton

When I interviewed Dickey Betts back in July of 1991, the Allman Brothers Band had just released its tenth studio album, Shades of Two Worlds, the second to feature the amazing Warren Haynes from Gov’t Mule as co-guitarist.

Betts and Haynes wrote four of the eight songs on Shades together, while Betts composed the longest track, the 11-minute “Nobody Knows”, on his own.

So I guess it was no surprise, when I asked him what his fave tune on the album was, that he wound up talking about that one the most.
