Rounder releases the final studio album from rock and roll legend, Gregg Allman.
The album has been a long time in the making and represents the culmination of
one of the most prolific careers in classic rock history.
The album is pressed on 150g first-run Specialty Hardwood Color Vinyl LP and is
housed in a gatefold jacket and includes a heavyweight lithograph.
Produced by Don Was and recorded in Muscle Shoals, AL at the renowned Fame
Studios, this record reaches back to the sound and recording techniques that
first inspired the early Allman Brothers records. Guests include The McCrary
Sisters, Buddy Miller, and Jackson Browne.
"The final album by Gregg Allman, who died in May, is a moving farewell
statement à la twilight masterworks by Leonard Cohen and David Bowie. Yet while
Southern Blood is rich with intimations of mortality, it's easygoing, too, with
a laid-back generosity that recalls Allman's kindest Seventies work – see his
warm take on Lowell George's Southern-rock salvo 'Willin',' or versions of
tender folk reckonings by his friends Tim Buckley and Jackson Browne. The most
moving moment is the searching blues 'My Only True Friend,' sung as a
conversation with his brother Duane. 'It feels like home is just around the
bend,' he sings. It's the elegiac sound of gracefully moving on." - Rolling
