• Gregg Allman - Low Country Blues

    15 Jan 2011, 05:38 by onthewall2983


    Gregg's voice is one of the most unique in all of rock. The Allman Brothers Band were the first Rock band to truly represent the Southern spirit and character, and his voice was front in center along with the twin guitar duties of his late brother Duane and Dickey Betts. The band has changed, disbanded, and reformed in many different configurations, but his voice has been the constant in it's 40-year history.

    But less constant has been his solo career. Since 1973, he has released 6 studio and 1 live record. Not to mention the record he put out with his then-wife Cher, one that lasted as long on the charts as their marriage. The records were mostly (with the exception of his first, the varied Laid Back) slickly produced affairs ready-made for Rock radio. Good songs, but little of the adventurous drive of his work with the ABB.

    But now, 14 years after his last album, he comes back with the slow-burning Low Country Blues. …
  • My Favorite Albums: #78 The Allman Brothers Band’s “At Fillmore East”

    21 Jun 2009, 20:04 by DamnYouAll

    I am usually pretty skeptical when it comes to live albums. Something about me has been conditioned to find studio albums as the best you can get. I mean, you get all the best takes. You get awesome layering and effects that are troublesome to reproduce live. And you’re guaranteed the best every time. So why bother with live albums? Well, every so often you get a live album, where the energy of the band is more than the studio track. Where all the extended parts are just brilliant. Where the album is like being there. It’s a beautiful thing; though not one I would claim every album can pull it off. The Allman Brothers Band's “At Fillmore East” brings together all these great musicians, letting them take blues standards to new heights and their originals blaze with new energy. I love a band where all the musicians are top notch in their own right and of course it great when technical skill can me overall composition. To be able to demonstrate this live is truly the peak of what makes a good band.

  • Is it too early for a best-of list? (updated Aug. 23, 2007)

    11 Aug 2007, 21:35 by kperfetto

    All Music doesn't think so.

    I never keep best-of lists, for music anyway. Usually, I don't buy enough records to find ten "good" ones for the year. This is what I've bought so far this year*

    (*Strikethroughs = already sold back to the store for beer money.)

    Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha
    Recommended by an internet friend. I like it fine. I'm going to guess this isn't his best though. Still on the shortlist, though.

    Wilco - Sky Blue Sky
    Needs more listens. That's my standard line when I think I'm disappointed, but I'm not quite sure. When I heard Sky Blue Sky in its entirety in a record store, I fell in love with it. (It's that drug that permeates the air at most indie record stores -- you think it's incense or something, but it's really something that warps your reality making you think every record playing in the store is the best thing since The Beatles. Needs more listens. Definitely.

    Lucinda Williams - West
    Disappointed. No more listens.

    The Dollyrots - Because I'm Awesome

  • 27/11/06 10 Songs for Operation Week

    26 Nov 2006, 19:40 by Risty

    I missed a couple of weeks with a dead computer, but now I'm off north today to get an operation on my hip (yay!), so it was more than about time to find another set of ten songs...

    Stop Crying Your Heart Out
    How We Operate
    No Complaints
    Don't Need A Reason
    Ready For Drowning
    Freedom Hangs Like Heaven
    Hello Sunshine
    Midnight Rider

    Hmmm... blame to Beaubier for Oasis, clearly... and that track freaks me out a little, because I only downloaded it yesterday, but I knew it all... It's not like I listen to the radio or watch much MTV, so where the hell did I get to know it???

    *spooky finger wiggle*

    The Allman Brothers are dad's fault. I probably need therapy for parental-induced country rock obsessions, but never mind. I like it.

    Beth Orton is my current favourite female voice, I've decided. Obviously not my favourite voice overall (Ben!!!!), but yes.... she is love.

    And How We Operate... well, I couldn't resist. …

  • That Lyrics Game

    26 Sep 2006, 14:29 by bamgrrl

    I'm sure you all know the drill but here it is anyway. First 20 songs on shuffle (skipping of course the instrumentals and songs that my husband or his friend recorded cause that's not really fair) first line. I need the artist and the song title.

    Because I am doing this at work (says a lot about my level of responsibility huh?) I only have 400 songs so there was some repetition of artists. I'll try it from home tonight too, more interesting that way as we have a lage and eclectic list.

    So, here goes!

    1. Well, Ive got to run to keep from hiding. Midnight Rider - LiquorBox
    2. Come on baby get the lighterStart the Fire - honeybunney
    3. Take away your pen and paper
    4. Without wishing to cause you any pain One Chance- windlotus68
    5. Guyute was the ugly pig
    6. You're a part time lover and a full time friend Anyone Else But You - convoy_nicky
    7. I feel I never told you the story of the ghost
    8. Sometimes she drinks a six pack
