The Gregg Allman Tour

The follow-up to Gregg Allman's solo masterpiece Laid Back, this double-vinyl (single CD) concert document is much more than a souvenir to commemorate a successful tour. In fact, Laid Back's big single, "Midnight Rider," isn't even included. Instead, Allman leads a stellar soul-gospel ensemble through blues workouts like "Turn on Your Love Light" (which clocks in at over 10 minutes) and the country funeral hymn "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," which in fitting tribute to Brother Duane fades out with the ABB's "Little Martha." A jazzy, innovative reworking of "Dreams" is essential listening for Allman Brothers fans.
