Album Description

Album Review
Allman penned many a memorable song over the years (think "Midnight Rider"), but was also a great interpreter of others' material across the blues, rock and folk genres. There is only one original on this album, "My Only True Friend," co-written with guitarist Scott Sharrard. The rest are poignant covers by the likes of Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan and Tim Buckley, some that speak directly to a melancholy look back on a full yet tumultuous life. Others, like the Grateful Dead's "Black Muddy River" and Little Feat's "Willin,'" are sweet enough to paint a grin a mile wide across your face. The horn section really makes these songs pop, as do great backup vocals throughout.
There's nothing groundbreaking or surprising about this last record — it's classic Gregg Allman — which is exactly why it's a sweet, solid note to go out on. I'd say we're mighty lucky he gave it one more kick at the can.
