Thoughts on Dickie Betts: Jessica


Allman Brothers’ guitarist Dickie Betts died last week at 80.

His songs, especially ‘Jessica,” have always been my favorite ABB cuts, and he will forever hold a special place in my heart. I’ve listened to the Allman’s since 1972 and still circle back to them several times a year.

“Jessica” is an instrumental written for his baby daughter Jessica.

Listen to the song’s ending notes, and you’ll hear Betts’ guitar repeating,  “Jessica.”

It’s a happy song. That’s what I like about it.

I have many versions of “Jessica” that I’ll share this week.
