AllMusic Review by

A solid, streamlined, and altogether enjoyable introduction to one of the most iconic American rock outfits, Midnight Rider: The Essential Collection collects 15 of the Allman Brothers Band's most notable songs, including classic rock radio standards like "Ramblin' Man," "Whipping Post," "Statesboro," "Jessica," and the venerated title cut. While 2004's two-part Stand Back: The Anthology covers far more ground stylistically, this U.K.-issued overview offers up the biggest bang for the buck, especially for the casual fan who is just looking for a seamless highlight reel.
