If you are a fan of southern music, more especially the music that came from Capricorn Records during their 70s heyday, when the Allman Brothers Band was at their zenith, then you will enjoy A Never Ending Groove. It is truly an insider's view. Duane Allman gets a lot of credit for creating the Southern rock and jam band movements with the formation of the Allman Brothers Band, but Johnny pre-dates the band, having been friends with Duane and Gregg Allman during their days in competing bands on the Chitlin' Circuit. They eventually joined forces to create Hourglass, and their shared experiences produced a deep friendship, eventually leading to his engineering and producing rolls behind the console at Capricorn Recording Studios. Johnny is as much a part of the Capricorn legacy as Duane Allman himself. --Dave Pierson, President Georgia Allman Brothers Band Association
