GREGG ALLMAN

LOW COUNTRY BLUES

2011-01-04

Gregg Allman certainly believes that good things take time and after 14 years since his last solo record he has released his finest solo release to date. Produced by now legendary producer T Bone Burnett and joined by Dr. John on piano and Doyle Bramhall II Gregg gives us a dozen gems that cover many facets of the blues. The CD begins with the Sleepy John Estes acoustic track "Floating Bridge" this certainly fits the sounds of low country blues. On the Bobby Blue Bland track "Blind Man" Gregg introduces a laid back horn section for a track that resembles Bobby Blue Bland meets Roomful Of Blues. "Just Another Rider" has a classic Allman Brothers sound to it and was co wrote with fellow band member Warren Haynes. On the BB King track "Please Accept My Love" Gregg gives this classic a 1950's R&B feel. You can also covers from the likes of Muddy Waters and Otis Rush on this disc, but after only one listen you will agree that this is a rock and blues veteran at his very best.
