    To this day, "Not My Cross To Bear" is still one of my favorite songs of all time.

    Man, when Gregg begins those first two verses.

    One of my all time favourite bands. My Cross To Bear is indeed wonderful, soulful, and emotional. I haven't played the debut in a while but will fix that! Stunning guitar on this track too.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Not sure where Live at Ludlow Garage fits in the album order but I always liked that release

    I bought a special edition of Low Country Blues by Gregg Allman and received a very nice 3 ft by 1 foot poster of Gregg walking along a country road with his back to the camera. It is hand signed and I put the poster/litograph into a really special frame with complimentary matting. It's at the top of my stairs to the bedroom so I pass by it often and am so glad to own it.

    I was 13 years old and my 8th grade Math teacher brought me to the store the day it came out to buy it. 25 years later I was privileged to work with them for the next 10 years. One of the highlights of my professional career.

    I was first turned on to Idlewild South as a 15 year old, and then listened to the debut album. Their music changed my life. I've been playing Berry Oakley
    licks ever since. I currently have an ABB tribute band, Idlewild West, here in the Bay Area. I missed seeing Duane by a month, at Carnegie Hall. I'll be]
    seeing The Allman Family Revival in December at The Fillmore in Sf, with The Allman Betts Band, and a number of guests. The next generation now carries
    the torch.

    I actually think this was their defining studio album. Peach and B&S may be a tad more varied and refined, but there's nothing like the smokey haze-vibe of "Dreams" or the complete onslaught of "Whipping Post".

    My sisters ex got me into the Allmans back when Eat a Peach was released. Every time I heard a new album with Gregg singing after that I got goosebumps.

    I had Eat a Peach in high school in the mid-70s. Gregg's vocals are amongst the best in rock overall. Their music was ground breaking and so powerful. My love of the Allman Brother in full didn't take hold until recent years. I was lucky enough to see Allmans for 3 nights in Boston about 10 years ago. I was captivated and the shows ranks among the best of seen in my life. I had to cross the border from Canada to Boston so I was also lucky that a friendly fan gave me a joint of pretty powerful weed that I smoked before two of the shows! I also caught the Allmans in New York state.

    I wish I could post the framed lithograph of Old Country Road with Gregg's autograph. It's a beauty and is placed where I can look at it regularly.

    There are very few white singers who can deliver the blues as soulfully as Gregg. It's a short list that, IMHO, includes Johnny Winter, Jack Bruce and Van Morrison. those aren't the only ones, but they are the first ones I think of. A lot of white singers can mimic the blues, but they are soulless.

    I just found a cheap copy of Live at Atlanta Pop Festival at a local store. I love the sound on this one and it includes Dreams which is a favorite. The spoken intro to this set is priceless!

    You don't have to look far for another one for inclusion on that list; his bandmate Warren Haynes.

    I bought it upon its release on the strength of a small item in the "Random Notes" section of Rolling Stone magazine some time before, something to the effect of "a great band out of Macon." I caught them a few times back then, most famously when they recorded the Fillmore East LP. Good times.....

    Er, you're actually in the audience when they're doing "Elizabeth Reed"?!

    I bought the original album in a small record store in Long Beach.

    I have no idea why I knew I had to have it but thank goodness I did!
