  • Summary: On his latest album, the blues-rock singer pays tribute to his influences, both as a solo artist and as a member of the Allman Brothers. Allman also collaborates with other blues instrumentalists to create his own spin on a collection of old-time songs.

    It's haunting, often harrowing stuff, but Allman knows this territory well, growling, yearning, pleading for some sense of peace that seems as if it will ever elude him--and maybe anyone who walks the eart

    No great surprises, maybe, but it's good to find he can still deliver.

    It adds up to Allman's best and surely most focused and cohesive solo release, and one where the template can hopefully be repeated in less time than it took this to appear.

    Produced by the ever-tasteful T-Bone Burnett, Ray Charles wouldn't have been disgraced by the earthy mix of soulful blues and gospel. [Mar 2011, p.105]

    Allman's latest, Low Country Blues, pays homage to the music he fell in love with as a youngster.

    Gregg Allman's history lesson may not match his finest recordings, but it's a diverting blues miscellany from an undoubted master.

    The southern legend's first solo outing in 14 years. [Feb. 2011, p. 108]
