Gregg Allman Returns To Form

Low Country Blues, the first solo studio album from Gregg Allman in 14 years (story), is a couple of months away, but the Allman Brothers Band mainstay says fans should not have to wait long for the one after that.  Allman, speaking with Billboard, says four songs he and T Bone Burnett worked on for the January 18 release did not make it on Low Country Blues and he '...can't wait to get back in there and cut another one.'  In addition to his own health issues - Allman underwent a liver transplant earlier this year (story), the death of his friend and producer Tom Dowd almost a decade ago made him reluctant to record.  Gregg met with Burnett in Memphis, where he learned that the producer and a pair of architects he knows were creating a sonic replica that city's Sun Records studio building next door to Burnett's house.  The prospect of doing a future recording there was enough to get Gregg into an LA studio during the closing weeks of 2009 with Burnett on the other side of the glass to for the sessions that produced Low Country Blues
Allman opens a 13 date solo tour on Dec. 28. The Allman Brothers Band returns to the Beacon Theatre for its annual series of New York concerts in March, and will tour during the summer months.
