Late Night FDL: I’m No Angel

Gregg Allman – I’m No Angel

Gregg released it ahead of his new album…

With the Allman Brothers Band now retired for good, Gregg Allman is moving ahead with his solo career, and his next release will be the live CD/DVD package, Back To Macon, GA, due out August 7.

Allman has been touring quite a bit as of late with his solo band, which now includes longtime Allmans percussionist Marc Quinones. Back to Macon, GA sees his current ensemble revisiting some of his Allmans classics as well as some of the highlights from his solo catalog, including his 1987 hit “I’m No Angel.” Watch that performance above.

When we spoke to Gregg last year, he told us to expect more solo releases. He’s planning to work with producer T-Bone Burnett on a follow up to 2011’s GRAMMY-nominated Low Country Blues. Additionally, he said, “I also have one to cut in Muscle Shoals with Don Was, and that’s a record I’ve long been pre-meditating, maybe thirty years, and the title will be All Compositions By… my name.”

In the meantime, Gregg and his band are currently on tour (see the dates at his website), including headlining the Laid Back Festival in Long Island, New York on August 29.

Be nice to one another…!

Late Night FDL: One Way Out

Gregg Allman – One Way Out

Gregg is set to release his new solo album, Live: Back To Macon, GA, in August…

Gregg Allman has released a live version of One Way Out in a video clip.

It’s taken from upcoming release Live: Back To Macon, GA, recorded with his eight-piece solo band, to be launched on August 7.

Rounder Records say of the title: “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.

“Live: Back to Macon, GA marks his first-ever official solo DVD release where he delivers ferociously high-energy and emotive performances.” The DVD includes additional interviews and a documentary feature.

Allman, who wound down the Allman Brothers Band in 2014 after a 45-year career, appears at the inaugural Ramblin’ Man Fair at Mote Park, Kent, on July 25-26.
