|Allman and Woman|
Styles: Blues Rock, Funk Rock, Southern Rock
Gregg Allman - Lead vocals (in band: 1977)
Cher - Lead vocals (in band: 1977)
On June 30, 1975 Cher married rock musician Gregg Allman, co-founder of The Allman Brothers Band. She filed for divorce nine days later, citing his heroin and liquor problems, but they reconciled and remained married until 1979. They had one son, Elijah Blue, on July 10, 1976. Under the rubric "Allman and Woman", they released the 1977 duet album "Two the Hard Way".
The product of the two singers' unlikely and turbulent relationship and marriage, it attempted an even more unlikely musical melding of Allman's Southern rock with Cher's idiosyncratic, personality-driven pop. The uncharacteristically airblown cover notwithstanding, Allman's musical ideas and singing generally took the lead.
"Two the Hard Way" was not a commercial success either; by the time the 1983 edition of the same guide had come out, the album was out of print. The album has never been released on CD or iTunes. According to Billboard, Cher owned this album's master right and Warner had no right to reissue.
