Although the Allman Brothers may have officially called it a day in 2014, co-founder and namesake Gregg Allman is still going strong. His last record of original songs came out just four years ago and he continues to hit the road. And Back to Macon, this two CD/DVD set, proves he’s still a top caliber performer.
Recorded in his home town on January 14, 2014, his first-ever solo DVD has this Godfather of Southern Rock backed by an 8-piece band, and includes special guest Devon Allman, his son and member of Honeytribe.
This 16 song set includes plenty of his solo and Allman Brother hits, including great renditions of “I’m No Angel,” “Statesboro Blues,” “Midnight Rider” and “Melissa.” The DVD of the live show also splices in interviews with Gregg about the group’s songwriting and the influence of their hometown on the band’s music. A great collection for any fan of Gregg and the Allman Brothers.
