5.0 out of 5 stars Allman's masterpiece 29 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album showcases Greg's talent to maximum advantage and is recommended to anyone who enjoys the country-meets-soul approach of the Southern Rockers. Absent from this are the contributions of Duane Allman and Dicky Betts, but happily , pianist Chuck Leavell is much in evidence. The songs range from the familiar - culled from the Allman's repertoire but given a smoother treatment - to the superb 'These Days' penned by Jackson Browne. The very considered choice of material, the brilliant treatment, Greg's fantastic white soul voice - and an extremely cohesive atmosphere throughout the record - mean that his is one album where you'll never have to skip a track to enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 24 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Laid back sums this album up a treat. It gives a softer perspective on some pretty hot Allman Brother Band stuff together with a some newer songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a classic, but still great. 25 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This solo effort from Greg was recorded at the same time as The Allman Brothers 'Sisters and Brothers' album. This is a much more reflective collection of songs and one of those 'nice little albums' you rediscover over and over again. Until I purchased this CD (well admittedly my 1st purchase was a cassette!) I hadn't realised he was co-writer of 'Midnight Rider', the first track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxed southern soul. 22 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
This was Gregg Allman's first solo album. It was made at a time when the Allmans were still very much an extended family of the band, roadies, families etc. The title really sums it up perfectly. Allman and the band he assembled for the record sound relaxed and as a result the music just flows beautifully from the soulful, heartfelt, Please Call Home to the swinging r'n'b of Don't Mess Up A Good Thing. There isn't a weak track on the album. Standouts for me are Multicolored Lady, Midnight Rider and These Days. The last of these probably betters Jackson Browne's own version.
The production is superb and playing my vinyl copy today some 40 years after its release it still sounds superb. This is timeless music. If you have even a passing interest in The Allman Brothers Band (and you should!) you owe it to yourself to get it.
