Win a Copy of Gregg Allman's "Live: Back to Macon, GA" CD/DVD Set
It doesn't take a genius to figure out that Gregg Allman's influence on the newer generation of Americana artists has been sizable. With his brother Duane, he started the groundbreaking Allman Brothers Band, which came to define the sound of Southern rock music for decades. But, as much ground as Duane and Gregg broke together, the latter has laid down just as impressive a body of work during his many years as a solo artist.
Earlier this month, our friends over at Rounder Records released an incredible album of live performances featuring Gregg Allman and his band live in Macon, GA.
According to a press release:
Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA [is] a stellar live DVD/CD package that captures Allman and his eight-piece solo band in a high-energy performance. This emotive show was recorded in January, 2014 at the venerable Grand Opera House in Macon, GA, the Middle Georgia town where it all began for the Allman Brothers Band.
[It] features sixteen tracks, made up of a nicely-varied selection of songs from the ABB catalog (“Statesboro Blues,” “Melissa,” “Whipping Post”), tunes from Allman’s solo albums (“Queen of Hearts,” “I’m No Angel”), and several dynamic cover songs. The DVD will include two bonus tracks, as well as special interview segments.
We've teamed up with the folks at Rounder to give away a copy of this special collection to one lucky ND community member.
