When I saw this post I said to myself that I would wait to receive my cd in the mail to give Southern Blood a first listen. I have heard My Only True Friend and Love the Life. Thought both are wonderful. It took me all of 3 minutes to give in and listen to this stream. Can't say a few tears didn't well up.

Gregg's voice is captured real pure. The band sounds real nice too. They don't get in the way.

Adam's Song was very touching.

Looking forward to the cd.

Its a great gift that Gregg gave us...

That was an emotional listen for sure. His voice sounds great - better than we had any right to expect. Going Going Gone and Song for Adam are both devastating, Willin' is sweet, and Blind Bats is outstanding- I'd put it up there with some of his best vocal performances, and maybe his creepiest ever. He sounds so grave it sort of makes the words almost absurd. Johnny Jenkins' version is intense and direct, but Gregg's puts the song into this horror movie dimension. I do kind of wish they had cut the last chorus of Song for Adam so the last words on the record were the ones where his voice breaks, and then the silence...

Man what a great final statement from the Statesman. I didn't have the urge to listen to Low Country Blues after the first listen - different story with this album.

The pedal steel on this is so well done and sounds perfect with Gregg's voice.

That was actually the one small thing I'm not a fan - the pedal steel is a little too much and out of place, especially on "Willin'" and "Black Muddy River".

I streamed this today.

I'm sure some late fall night I'll be outside, sipping and listening to SB and end up crying like a phucking baby

So very impressed! Gregg sounds great. Can tell great care went into the production and making a strong and powerful final statement. Thank you, Gregg.

Was always wondering what my 1000th post would be about.

Very impressive, very touching......what a testament! Seems that Gregg put all the energy he had left in this project. This ranks up with Laid Back for sure. No doubt this album will become a classic. Unbelievable vocals on Blind Bats . Hope there will be some high res download from this. Thank you Gregg and RIP brother!

I've listened through 4 or 5 times now (probably do the same today), and this album is really special. It's clear that there was more than just cutting some tunes going on. Gregg sounds so good, and the band is such a perfect compliment. Sums up so much of what made Gregg Allman's music unique.

I listened to the first three pre-release songs (Willin' was available earlier in week). I am holding off on listening to the whole thing until I have the block of time in front of my stereo to take it all in at once. Kind of killing me to not put on some headphones to listen on the PC at work.

I remember getting the Where It All Begins CD and sequestering myself to do the same 23 years ago (while reading ever word of the liner notes).

Has anyone had a peak at who else, besides his touring band, is on
the CD. I know Buddy Miller sings some backup. Who's playing the pedal
steel?

I wanted my first listen to be in my chair on vinyl. No self control...I only made it until lunch before I streamed it.

Outstanding...simply outstanding. An emotional listen, for sure. I'm so grateful he cared enough to leave this for us.

Beautiful, heartfelt record. That's all I have to say. The man's legacy has just expanded.

Sitting here listening to it for the 4th time today. All of these songs could have been written by Gregg himself. You can tell how much thought went into the selections. They really chronicle Gregg's life and career. His raw emotion in every song brings tears to my eyes. But listening to the album makes me feel like he is still here with us. Gone , but will never be forgotten and the music will always comfort me and hopefully every Gregg and ABB forever. We miss you Gregg!!
