Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the first solo album in 14 years from the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame legend. Called Low Country Blues for the coastal Georgia region Allman calls home, the record was produced by T Bone Burnett, recorded at his Village Recorder studio in Los Angeles and features Dr. John on piano, guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, and Burnett's brilliant go-to rhythm section: bassist Dennis Crouch and drummer Jay Bellerose. Low Country Blues is Gregg Allman at his very best -- a self-assured, spirited collection that will stand as a major milestone in what is undeniably an exceptional career.

5.0 out of 5 stars The album (so far) of his life. January 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD
In the liner notes for "Low country blues", Robert Gordon writes "A river runs through the blues, and Gregg Allman continues to navigate it. This album deposits Gregg at a fresh place on the bank. He's a traveler, sometimes riding with the current, swimming upstream when he prefers".
This new release is proof of the success of Gregg's journey. When I received my copy of "Low country", I sat uninterrupted through all twelve tracks. Twice. Some musical projects are memorable for well written songs, thoughtful sequencing and great instrumentation. Others are so complete, so satisfying that you just don't want to listen to anything else for a while. "Low country" falls into the latter category.
Ace producer T-bone Burnett is also responsible for B.B. King's latest, the wonderful "One kind favor".That disc kicks off with a very dark version of Blind Lemon Jefferson's "See that my grave is kept clean". The opener for this disc, Sleepy John Estes' "Floating Bridge" is a song similar in format, but where "Favor" is a plea, "Bridge" is a bitter recollection. Both songs, and on both cds, the presence of Dr. John's masterful piano is as important as that of the stars.
"Little by little" is a Junior Wells staple that starts off with a funky B-3 intro by Gregg, then features more of the good Doctor with great guitar fills by Doyle Bramhall II. "Devil got my woman" shows Burnett's greatest strength as a roots music producer- the ability to take a Skip James song from the 1930's and remake it in 2011-without sacrificing any integrity. Gregg's vocals are almost ethereal, with dual guitar interplay between Bramhall and Colin Linden on Dobro.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it January 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I love all the old blues musicians and I am a big fan of the Allman Brothers, but mostly of the Duane Allman era albums. Not that I dislike the current incarnation, its just that I tend to lean towards the early albums when listening. I must also say that I was never a huge fan of Greggs solo albums. But Low Country Blues is hands down a great album. There is not one song that I would consider to be filler. The production on the entire album is outstanding. Each instrument adds as much to the song as Greggs voice. The entire album is laid back with a steady infectious groove. The songs are fairly short and concise, none overstaying their welcome in a too long jam session. Gregs voice fits these songs like he was born to sing them (which, with his voice, he certainly was born to sing the blues). I've seen another review of someone complaining that this was a T bone album with Gregg simply singing on it. The fact of the matter is I don't care who did what or why. This is probably my favorite blues album to be released in the past ten years and these traditional songs have only been elevated by the work of everyone involved on this project.

on a side note, Best Buy is selling this album including a t shirt of Gregg Allmans 1974 tour. It is more expensive than buying just the regular album, but I thought it was a cool addition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A more bluesy style January 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Gregg Allman has been making records both solo and with the Allman Brothers since the 1960's. He has never made an album like this before. With one original tune ("Just Another Rider") and a few familiar blues covers ("I Can't be Satisfied". "RollingStone" "Little by Little"), the main focus of this new CD is less familiar acoustic and electric blues songs.Producer T-Bone Burnett and Allman selected songs that are well suited to Allman's talents.
Gregg's voice is still in top form and he has the backing of a top notch band here, including Dr. John and Doyle Bramhall II. The backing is more sparse on this CD than a typical Allman Brothers CD, spotlighting the vocals a bit more. Of course, fans of the Allman Brothers Band and Gregg's solo work will love this and he may even make a new fans if some people who are not fans listen to "Low Country Blues".

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer in every regard. April 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gregg didn't make this album to fill it with "hits". And even though there are only a couple of newly written songs on the album, it isn't even a traditional album of covers. What it is is Gregg Allman delivering the blues, using his past to push this album into the fore. These are blues so thick you have to wade through them. You can feel it the instant the album starts, the air gets thick and heavy, there seems to be smoke wafting in the air, the voice doesn't seem to have a hint of falsetto and the songs evoke an imagery that is easy to relate to. Gregg has always been known for the blues, but this is the "mo' betta'" version from way down in the back country where only the locals go.

This is by far one of the best recordings that Gregg has ever done. When asked to assess his work Gregg speaks about the album "coming from the heart" and when you listen to this, you know he's right.

I suggest that you click on the Amazon link and grab yourself a copy. An' when da' mailman come, prepare to haf a serious case o' dem ol' blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars At first I didn't get it... July 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this CD when it first came out and popped it the player in my car. I had gotten back into a lot of Allman Brothers music as part of a jam band period (that I'm still in). I was ready for some up-tempo ABB-like stuff and this just was NOT it. So, back in a pile it went.

But for something different last weekend I played a House of Blues collection of Chicago Blues and it really hit a chord (as this music always does when I'm ready for it). So then, back this goes in the player and "wow." Gregg Allman still has a lot of power in his delivery, and this is a very tasteful, respectful take on some real blues material - some of it familiar and a lot of it not as much.

But so well done...and so worth a good listen.

Low Country Blues Best Blues CD of the year!!
I like it very much also and gave it a 5 star review. It's real early in the year but no doubt, this will be one of the best, if not the best blues CDs.

Muffled over saturated sound?
Exactly. Evidently the person responsible for this recording has a hearing problem. Yet another example how the music industry records almost everything for mp3's and $2 earbuds. The muddy bass wrecks this CD. Love the actual music but can't enjoy listening to it, please reissue for us non-mp3... Read more

Why?
This will be fabulous, a great blues singer playing the old blues from the masters. I've heard Gregg sing some of these live. I have been hoping for just this sort of CD from Gregg for a while. Many singers do great covers including Gregg and Susan. I am thrilled about this new music from Gregg... Read more
