Johnny Sandlin is truly the unsung hero of Southern rock an absolutely amazing record producer and musician with a true gift and an impeccable ear for music. This memoir from Anathalee Sandlin is a real page-turner for those of us who recall with fondness the hey day of Capricorn Records and the birth of Southern rock in Macon, Georgia. This is a story that truly needed to be told. --Michael Buffalo Smith, universalmusictribe.com
Never-Ending Groove is a non-stop read; packed with amazing insights and provocative anecdotes, Johnny Sandlin's saga takes us back to where it all began for Southern rock. --John Lynskey Hittin' the Note Magazine
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

It's really has been a pretty incredible journey for Johnny !! They cover the early years with The Minutes, the Muscle Shoals recording scene, playing on "the road", Hour Glass, LA, Miami, NYC, & finally Macon & The Allman Brothers Band.
I am just amazed at how many connections Johnny & Ann make between so many people & musicians that I knew about & have listened to on records / CDs. Johnny played with & produced the music of Duane Allman, Eddie Hinton, Paul Hornsby, Gregg Allman, Delbert McClinton, The Allman Brothers Band, & a huge number of people who were either famous musicians back then OR became well-known later. Forget Gregg Allman's memoir - Johnny Sandlin's musical journey is THE BOOK to read about the birth of Southern Rock !
I'M JUST KNOCKED OUT ! WELL DONE . . . Ann & Johnny !! THANK YOU !!!
It is an easy read and tells the life of Johnny Sandlin.From playing drums with Duane and Gregg Allman in their band before The Allman Brothers band, Hour Glass,to working for Capricorn records and producing and engineering some of the greatest musical groups of the 1970's.
He produced and engineered many of The Allman Brothers band's album's and their top songs.
The book gives a discography of almost all of the albums he worked on through the years.
I got to spend an afternoon with Johnny and Anathalee a couple of years ago.They are very warm and gracious.She did an excellent job of telling his story.It is very much like Gregg Allman's autobiography.You will enjoy this book.
