Producer, engineer, multi-instrumentalist Johnny Sandlin was an architect of what is referred to as “Southern Rock” yet his body of work was far more expansive.

Sandlin’s credits include watershed slabs with the Allman Bros., Gregg Allman, Richard Betts, Wet Willie, Delbert McClinton, The Outlaws, Bonnie Bramlett, Elvin Bishop, Dixie Dregs, Captain Beyond, and Widespread Panic to cite a select few.

Oft times Sandlin worked both sides of the sessions, helming the bass chair as well – most notably with Gregg and Duane in Hour Glass, Livingston Taylor, Gregg’s magnificent solo bow Laid Back (1973), and Richard Betts’ brilliant Highway Call (1974), among others.

Johnny was a pure pocket player with a penchant for rhythm & blues grooves!
