The first Allman Brothers song to chart, this hit #92 in America.
This was the first original song the band recorded that was not written by Gregg Allman. Guitarist Dickey Betts wrote it.
With an acoustic guitar into and the refrain "Love is everywhere," this became a favorite among Hippies in the US.

Good song! Good message!

The ABB's shows are performed with a light show known as the Brotherhood of Light. They used to have a cool light show backing "Revival" which featured images of 60s protests and Woodstock. Recently, I haven't seen them do it anymore.

At recent Allman Brothers Band shows they have been extending the song a bit with a jam before the end. This song makes a good concert opener.

Suprisingly, for having a hippie air about them, the Allmans (and/or song owners) have "sold out" some of their songs, including this one.
Was actually adapted for a Red Lobster TV ad a few years ago that used the refrain "Lobsters everywhere".
