My vote is My Love is Your Love (track 10). Haunting and powerful Gregg vocals backed by a few female backups. Great stuff!

Just Another Rider, Devil Got My Woman, Please Accept My Love (this one is a bit of a curve ball, but makes perfect sense on the album at the same time)

I must say, I like the live version of "Just Another Rider" better than the studio version. I recorded and vined his show that was broadcast on Sirius/XM on NYE 2009 and it has a great version of that song and Floating Bridge. I've been listening to it for a year anticipating his new album. His touring band nails that song.

What a fine album ! As of my first couple of listens I have to say Rollin' Stone is off the charts ! This response could change by late this afternoon.

"Just Another Rider" should have been saved for the ABB, as a bluesy-rock tune in the mold of "High Cost of Low Living."

It's out of place on this record - the archaic production sound doesn't match what is more of a modern tune.

Ah, well...

Devil Got My Woman. It's spooky and just jumps out of the speakers and . After that I'd go with Rolling Stone, Can't Be Satisfied, Blind Man and Just Another Rider in some order. One of the things I really like about this album is that Gregg uses his low register more than he does with the Allmans and he shouts a lot less because the volume is so much lower. Not that I don't like his growl, but you really get to hear the nuance in his voice in a way you don't with a loud seven-piece band.

i've listened at least 10-15 times at this point...

first thought songs 9,10, & 11 did it best...then,song 3..

then....

it's imo not a matter of songs alone,but like Dirtfarmer,it captures a spirit in its totality--like the old days,this is an album that demands a complete listen...

it all holds together as one piece of work.....the parts are great,but the sum of the parts capture the mood & essence of this awesome album

For those who may not have seen an earlier thread,this may or may not interest you

I saw the Allmans at the Tower Theatre back in November and they performed "I Can't Be Satisfied". Derek just smoked the song on the slide guitar. It took me weeks to get that sound out of my head. Unfortunately Derek does not play on the the Gregg's studio cut. I do enjoy the album. Blind Man, Just Another Rider and Tears, Tears, Tears are standouts for me.

For me it's Floating Bridge. I've heard Gregg sing it live four times in the last year. Even better.
I love the CD and don't see a bad song on it. I Can't Be Satisfied, Muddy Waters sonng, is very lively and very good. My least favorite is, "Just Another Rider", but it's still pretty good.

Please Accept My Love (this one is a bit of a curve ball, but makes perfect sense on the album at the same time)



I really like this song, but it is surprising to me. It has a distinct country sound to me. Old Country, Hank Williams. Written by BB King. How much more country can you get? LOL

I can't pick a favorite song, but every damn time I listen to this, I hear something new that makes me say Holy Cr@p!

For those that prefer Gregg's band's take on Just Another Rider, I felt that way originally too, but after a couple listens to the LCB version with my eyes closed, I'll respectfully disagree. The opening minute alone is just great.

I was thinking it sounded like a 50's R&B or Doo Wop tune. I haven't listened to much old time country music.

is it just me or is this album a complete home run ??

Every song is great. I haven't spun a new record this much in a long time. I was actually waiting for a bit of a let down. I got kind of tired of hearing about T-bone Burnett. I didn't think the Plant/Krauss record was anything that great but this is just a great sounding recording. I also haven't been all that into Doyle Bramhal either but his guitar sounds real cool. Dr John might be the icing on the cake here.
Well done Gregg/T-bone/ and Band !

Also is the lead guitar solo on Just Another Rider done by Vince Esquir ? He was the kid who sat in with the bros on One Way Out at the beacon a few years ago.

There's something about this recording that really hits the mark. I sort of think Clapton was going for a similar vibe on his last CD but didn't quite get there. It's not a bad record but this is just so much better.

I suspect if the Allmans had any intention of recording again it would have been placed on that record. But since they don't Gregg used it.

I wasn't expecting to like "Please Accept My Love". It was the only song (that I already knew) that I didn't think was a good choice... I was wrong. Probalby my favorite on the album. Perfect for Gregg... Awesome.

"Devil Got My Woman" is pretty awesome too. Great cd.
