Gregg Allman Hits Career High
This is the highest chart position of Allman's storied career. His debut solo record, 1973's Laid Back, reached #13. Low Country Blues is Allman's first solo record in 14 years and was produced by T Bone Burnett at his Village Recorder studio in Los Angeles.
The album features Dr. John on piano, guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, and Burnett's brilliant go-to rhythm section: bassist Dennis Crouch and drummer Jay Bellerose.
As a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band and in his own solo career, Allman has long been a gifted natural interpreter of the blues. His soulful and distinctive voice is one of the defining sounds in the history of American music. Low Country Blues finds him putting his own stamp on songs by some of the blues giants whose work has long informed his own, from Muddy Waters and BB King to Buddy Guy and Magic Sam.
