The Gregg Allman Tour

Featuring a whimsical Martin Mull introduction, this soulful concert twofer waxed at my beloved Capitol Theater in Passaic and Carnegie Hall in support of Laid Back (1973) showcases Gregg's rhythm & blues and gospel influences abetted with strings and horns.

Bassist Kenny Tibbetts, a veteran of Roy Buchanan, Bobby Whitlock, Bonnie Bramlett, and Dicky's Great Southern, among others, keeps the pocket percolating beneath the layers of harmony and thick arrangements.

Allman was gracious enough to include two tracks by support band and Capricorn Records kindred spirits Cowboy with bassist David Brown.
