There may not have ever been a better pairing of two lead guitarists in their prime in rock history than Allman and Betts, and "Blue Sky" is among their greatest showpieces. That Duane died before their Eat a Peach album was released is still one of rock's saddest tales. A Gregg Allman showcase, written well before the group was founded, "Melissa" was included on Eat a Peach due to it being one of Duane's favorite songs that his brother had written.
Over the years, Gregg would occasionally perform it solo on an acoustic guitar, and its forlorn lyrics and simple structure made it a favorite among fans, and one of Gregg's best. Eat a Peach may have been the band's greatest studio moment, but it was largely an album split down the middle, between songs recorded both before and after Duane's death. This Allman Brothers song was written and recorded during the latter period, and epitomized their attempts to move forward, trying to take Duane's death as a lesson to seize what was in front of them rather than wallow in self-pity.
The result is one of the greatest songs in their catalog, and one of Gregg's best in particular.
