    Live at the Fillmore East remains one of the best live double albums ever produced.

    Nice piece on CBS Sunday Morning on Gregg's life. I was aware his brother Duane died in a motorcycle accident......I didn't know it was from one of motorcyclists greatest fears- the turn left in front of usually fatal scenario.

    From USA Today

    Gregg Allman's final album, 'Southern Blood,' is a brilliant commentary on leaving the world

    As rock superstars fade from the glare of fame into the shrouds of nostalgia, a few find ways to keep connecting. It’s not easy: Talent is critical but more important is honesty. This is especially true when the end of one’s path comes into view, when that road no longer stretches past the horizon but stops somewhere short of there.

    When Gregg Allman recorded Southern Blood (***˝ out of 4), he could see what lay ahead. Knowing that this was his farewell statement, he crafted it meticulously all the way up to the end of his journey, as producer Don Was indicated in the album’s liner notes: “He spent his final night listening to the latest mixes and closed his eyes knowing that his vision had been realized.”

    Received my copy today of Southern Blood and it is a very laid back good listen.

    My Only True Friend is written by Gregg Allman and Scott Sharrard

    What you hold in your hands is our
    father’s last statement. He wanted
    to leave you a most poignant, soulful
    and deep parting gift as he left us all.
    Our father truly lived and breathed
    music. His entire essence, being and
    life were centered around it. He took
    exceptional joy in knowing his music
    was the soundtrack to your good times
    and the medicine for your bad times.
    So please, celebrate him, continue to
    play his music, & turn it up. ...because
    the road goes on forever.

    —Devon Allman

    On behalf of the Allman family

    "Everything you need to know about Gregg and how he felt at the end
    of his life is contained in the lyrics to these songs and in the raw and expressive
    approach he brings to these last performances."

    "Gregg Allman cared deeply about this final album. He had very specific ideas about what
    he wanted to say and how he wanted to say it. He spent his final night listening to the latest
    mixes and closed his eyes for the last time knowing that his vision had been realized.
    Everyone involved in the making of this record hopes that it moves you and brings you great
    comfort in the years to come."


    Viva Gregg!
