Gregg Allman: Laid Back Deluxe Edition

Read "Laid Back Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Gregg Allman's first solo album, Laid Back (Capricorn, 1973), is the ideal candidate for a Deluxe Edition reissue and remaster. Not only is the record an exquisite, one-of-a-kind piece of work in its original form, but the backstory is eminently worth telling as it sheds light not only on the creation of the album itself, but ...

The Allman Brothers Band: Fillmore West '71

Read "Fillmore West '71" reviewed by Doug Collette

Like virtually all the previously-releases from The Allman Brothers Band Recording Co., this latest archive release, Fillmore West '71, is a mixed blessing. The four-CD set might better have been graced with the stylized graphics that adorn such titles as Nassau Coliseum: Uniondale, NY 5/1/73 (The Allman Brothers Band Recording Co., 2005) including the caveat about ...

Dickey Betts: Ramblin' Man: Live at the St. George Theatre

Read "Ramblin' Man: Live at the St. George Theatre" reviewed by Doug Collette

Dickey Betts does not add to his reputation with Ramblin' Man: The Dickey Betts Band Live at the St George Theater. To be fair, he doesn't significantly sully reputation as an icon of Southern rock either, but that's just testament to how firmly established is his position in history as co-founder of the Allman Brothers Band, ...

North Sea Jazz Festival
Rotterdam, The Netherlands

For a while now, jazz festivals have lost their exclusivity and being a musical source for just jazz fans or those who wanted to get involved in the scene. More commercial artists from other musical genres have actually become a ...

Gov't Mule: Bring On The Music - Live at the Capitol Theatre

Read "Bring On The Music - Live at the Capitol Theatre" reviewed by Doug Collette

In the essay within the 2CD/2DVD package of Gov't Mule's Bring On The Music, Warren Haynes makes note of the the group's twenty-fifth anniversary. And while the co-founder and titular leader of an ensemble originally spun off from the Allman Brothers Band goes to great length in rightfully stipulating the band's music as the source of ...

Bridges To Bremen

The Rolling Stones
Bridges To Bremen
Eagle Rock

Stunned by the brilliant pacing of the two and half hours plus that comprises the Rolling Stones' Bridges To Bremen, it's easy to see why Paul Sexton turns borderline breathless during the course of his essay in the booklet enclosed in the ...

The Allman Brothers Band: Bear's Sonic Journals: Fillmore East February 1970 - Deluxe Edition

Read "Bear's Sonic Journals: Fillmore East February 1970 - Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

This Fillmore East February 1970 set is actually the third physical release of these recordings, originally issued in truncated form in 1996 as part of the Grateful Dead's Dick's Pick's archive series. This three-CD set follows closely on the heels of the 2018 digital distribution of all the recordings from the three New York dates on ...

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe: Gnomes and Badgers

Read "Gnomes and Badgers" reviewed by Doug Collette

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe swings hard and grooves deeply for the better part of Gnomes and Badgers. In fact, if the tracks with vocals like “What If You Knew" on the first half of the record were sequenced in a different order, those cuts might well be nothing more than mere distraction from the real attraction(s) ...
