Gregg Allman The Gregg Allman Tour 180g Vinyl 2LP
Long Out of Print 1974 Live Effort Remastered from the Original Stereo Analog Tapes and Reissued on 180g Vinyl 2LP; Mimics Original Double LP with Sides 1 and 4 Pressed on LP1, and Sides 2 and 3 Pressed on LP2 Optimizing Playback
The masterful debut solo album by Gregg Allman, Laid Back, and his long out-of-print live LP The Gregg Allman Tour have both been newly remastered and will be reissued on 180g vinyl LP by Mercury/UMe in August 2019. The pair of releases showcase a remarkable time in Allman's career when he set off on his own to explore a different side of his artistry where he was fully at the helm.
Out of print on vinyl for over 30 years, The Gregg Allman Tour double LP has been remastered from the original stereo analog tapes. This vinyl reissue mimics the original double LP with sides one and four pressed on disc one, and sides two and three pressed on disc two which optimizes playback for multi-disc turntables.
Recorded over three nights at Carnegie Hall in New York on April 10 and 11, 1974 and at the Capitol Theatre in New Jersey on April 13, 1974, Allman along with members of the band Cowboy (Scott Boyer, Randall Bramblett, David Brown, Chuck Leavell, Bill Stewart, Tommy Talton), and a 24-piece orchestra performed songs from Laid Back alongside several laid-back reworkings of ABB songs like "Stand Back" and "Dreams."
The album also features spirited covers of "Turn On Your Love Light," "Are You Lonely For Me Baby" and the Elvis Presley hit "I Feel So Bad," as well as two tracks by Cowboy who take the reins with their songs "Time Will Take Us" and "Where Can You Go?," the latter featuring Allman on keys. The record is also notable for its inclusion of "Oncoming Traffic," a song that Allman said he was especially proud of and that wasn't featured on any studio releases.
