Gregg Allman “Low Country Blues”

Posted 17 Jan 2011 in 10s, Albums of 2011, Albums of the 10s, Blues

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#258 in the Series) is Gregg Allman, Low Country Blues.

This album is being released in just a few hours. I wanted to make sure everyone knew about it.  It’s the solo album many have been waiting for. A good old fashioned blues album.

Gregg covers the likes of Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland, B.B. King, Otis Rush, Muddy Waters and Junior Wells.  There is also one original song written by Warren Haynes.

Low Country Blues was produced by the ‘red hot’ T-Bone Burnett. Has he ever been on a role for a few years now.

If your headed out to purchase this album today, please don’t forget your ‘Ma + Pa’ record stores!!

I will attach a video of Gregg performance recently from the David Letterman show.

I’ll be attaching more videos as we get them.

You can listen to the album via the ‘Cool Album’ MySpace page here.
