Brothers of the Road is the eighth studio album, and tenth album overall, by the rock group the Allman Brothers Band. Released in 1981, it is the band's only album without drummer Jai Johanny Johanson and the last album to feature bassist David Goldflies and guitarist Dan Toler and the only album to feature drummer David Toler. The song "Straight from the Heart" was the group's third, and to date last, Top 40 hit. It was also the first Allman Brothers album to not feature an instrumental song.
The Road Goes On Forever was The Allman Brothers Band's first compilation album, a two-LP set released in 1975. It featured songs from the Allmans' first five albums. The album's title is a line from "Midnight Rider. Black Hearted Woman" (Gregg Allman) – 5:18. Dreams" (Gregg Allman) – 7:19. Whipping Post" (Gregg Allman) – 5:22. Midnight Rider" (Gregg Allman, Robert Payne) – 3:00.

Many of the elements of the Allman Brothers' sound remain intact here, but there are several things lacking that make this a less than essential album. The raw, rugged jams with climatic buildups and blistering guitar workouts have been substituted for a glossier, more pop-friendly sheen (thanks in no part to Clive Davis' involvement with the group at the time). And while "Straight From the Heart" saw a reasonable campaign on the charts, the rest of the album is tepid at best. Shortly thereafter, the Allman Brothers decided to hang it up again.
