Gregg Allman - Low Country Blues
LONG AWAITED SOLO ALBUM FROM THE LEGENDARY GREGG ALLMAN
Pick one of the great voices in White blues music Gregg Allman; add in one of the best producers around currently T Bone Burnett (producer of Robert Plant, Elton John, and Elvis Costello). And you have an Idea what this album is going to be like.
The songs are well chosen not only to highlight how good Gregg Allman's voice is (remember Allman Brothers Band Classics `It's not my cross to Bare' and `Wipping Post') but chosen with care to highlight the skill of some of the session musicians involed in the recording (Dr John for instance). For a man just recovering from a Liver transplant this certainly is a great way to recover and I hope it servers as a reminder of the great music Gregg has produced over the years and spurs Gregg on to writing more original material not that I am companioning. The Songs are not the best known blues tunes but man are they sung with conviction. Highlights of the album are the one original song `Just Another Rider' co written with fellow Allman Brothers member Warren Haynes, a strong version of Muddy Water's `I Can't Be Satisfied'. And the album closer a brooding seven-minute version of `Rolling Stone'
This is also unique as a Gregg Allman solo album in that it's the first not to contain a cover of an Allman Brothers song in a more laid back style. It's been a long wait 1997 was the last new album from Gregg Allman, a great start to 2011.
