The Allman Brothers Band. Jessica. From the album "Brothers And Sisters" Released August 1973 Recorded December 1972 Writer Dickey Betts. The song is named for Jessica Betts, the daughter of Dickey Betts and Sandy Bluesky. Gregg Allman -- organ, rhythm guitar Richard Betts -- lead and slide guitar, dobro Lamar Williams -- bass Chuck Leavell - piano, electric piano. Jaimoe -- drums. Butch Trucks -- drums, percussion. Les Dudek -- acoustic guitar. "Jessica" is a rock instrumental written by Dickey Betts, guitarist and founding member of The Allman Brothers Band. "Jessica" was the first Allman Brothers tune recorded with new bassist Lamar Williams after Berry Oakley's fatal motorcycle accident. Although not successful as a single, topping out at number 65 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the track achieved considerable airplay on progressive rock and album oriented rock radio and helped make Brothers and Sisters a commercial success. A later live version of "Jessica" won a Grammy Award in 1996, twenty-three years after the initial release, for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. ..............................................
