Low Country Blues


The Massachusetts based Rounder Records is venerable institution among record labels. Rounder is sort of the New England version of Elektra Records. I knew they were up to good things back in the mid ‘90s when they added surf-music label Upstart to their ranks. During the first decade of century 21, Rounder has proven to be a powerhouse rock album label thanks to huge selling albums from rock legends like Robert Plant and country superstar Willie Nelson. That trail of recording comebacks on Rounder continues with the 2011 CD release from Gregg Allman entitled Low Country Blues. Produced by T Bone Burnette, the eleven track excursion into the blues is actually Allman’s first solo album in 14 years. The voice and keyboard sound on the debut album from the Allman Brothers Band back in the late ‘60s, Allman remains an icon among Southern rock legends and Low Country Blues will go far towards furthering his legacy. T Bone is the hottest rock producer on the planet today and backed up by key musicians—including Doyle Bramhall II, Mac Rebennack, drummer Jay Bellerose and Burnette on guitars himself—Allman brings a wealth of experience to the sound and vision here. The key track here “Just Another Rider”—composed by Allman and Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes—is one of Allman’s best while the top notch production, CD packaging and superb CD booklet makes Low Country Blues a valuable investment for any serious Allman Brothers fan.
