"Shades of Two Worlds" is a 1991 album by the Allman Brothers Band. Among the tracks are several longer songs of varying genres: the rock song "Nobody Knows"; jazzy instrumental "Kind of Bird"; and the blues-rocker "Get On with Your Life". Dickey Betts takes a more prominent role in songwriting here than on most other of the group's albums, writing or cowriting five of the eight songs. There is also a Delta Blues cover of Robert Johnson's "Come On in My Kitchen". This album is currently out of print in the U.S., but remains a popular favorite among the group's fans. The reason for it being out of print was probably because of its relatively low chart positioning (#85) - however, it was praised by many critics upon its release.
