As a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band and in his own solo career, Allman has long been a gifted natural interpreter of the blues. His soulful and distinctive voice is one of the defining sounds in the history of American music. Low Country Blues finds him putting his own stamp on songs by some of the blues giants whose work has long informed his own, from Muddy Waters and BB King to Buddy Guy and Magic Sam. This is Gregg Allman at his very best - a self-assured, spirited collection that will stand as a major milestone in what is undeniably an exceptional career.

Low Country Blues is out now on Rounder Records.
