I think the two operative words are WHEN and HOW.

If for some miracle it does happen, PLEASE do not let T Bone Burnett anywhere NEAR the studio....

T Bone just and this is MHO only did not impress me with Greg's album. Cant comment about his other works because I'm not that familiar with them. Then again, maybe T Bone is the reason behind that.
Again, just my humble opinion.

Considering how many have continuously moaned about the lack of new music around here.
I'm just glad theres the possibility of new ABB music no matter how it gets to me.

I'm surprised nobody has posted how bad they think the album will be yet,
and how much it falls short of what the band has previously done.

Maybe someone should post Butch and tell him its not to late to scrap it before it even gets started....

Another operative word (or, well, abbreviation) is CD; they're now thinking a release on physical media is viable? Interesting.

agreed about T BONE unless anyone wants to hear a muddy bass heavy mix on an album

At least Butch seems like he wants to start doing something now with the bros.He was so much against another studio album maybe it would come out as a live show that is fine with me I will take anything at this point. I think warren and gregg may want to start road testing songs for this Beacon run this winter because warren wants to get mule back in the studio (Yes!) this year.

I really hope that T Bone Burnett does not produce the ABB. Although i was at first very pleased with the sound of Gregg's LCB but as the months passed i more and more wondered how it would have sounded without T Bone's typical production. But with the ABB i personally think it's not a sound that fits them.

Why is everyone so down on T-Bone?

Please GET T-Bone!

He has accomplished something only one or two people in the history of the music industry have done before: get Gregg Allman to sit down and record an album! Add the fact that Gregg has consistently mentioned making another one at all and actually appears serious about it?

The man is clearly some sort of genius.

I'm with you axeman, I don't get the T-Bone hate. Low Country Blues is my favorite Gregg solo album by far, and T-Bone is the only reason it even exists. I hope he wins a Grammy.

If you don't think his "sound" fits the Allman Brothers, I guess I can see that. But I am constantly amazed by all the people who think T-Bone "ruined" Low Country Blues, when I think he should receive some sort of special prize for coaxing that album out of Gregg.

Anyway, good to see Butch warming up to the idea of a new ABB album. Definitely a different tune than the standard "Making a studio album is more trouble than its worth" line that we have been hearing from Butch in recent years. I hope it happens.

You two guys said it better than I ever could have. Gregg hadn't released a solo record in 14 years, T-Bone gets him off his ass to do it, and now it's up for a Grammy award for Best Blues Album. And T-Bone sucks? Let's wait and hear a T-Bone produced ABB record before we pass any judgment. I happen to love Low Country Blues as well, and I think it's gonna win, because neither Derek's or Warren's nominations in the same category are really blues records at all, they're soul records.

I love LCB and think the production is very interesting,capturing a particular murky blues terrain....not sure t-Bone's production is best for an ABB record.Personally,I prefer Johnny Sandlin for a Brothers album....

Am in agreement with the above statement.

Although LCB is a nice collection of covers, my 2 cents worth is that is not as good as "Laid Back". To me, that was Gregg's best release even though it was 30 plus years ago. More power to T-Bone for getting Gregg back in the studio, and that's a good thing. However, that doesn't make T-Bone some wizard or whatever. Taste is relative, and I just think that Gregg's best writing of songs is reflected in "Laid Back", and to me originality of songs means more than covering others' tunes. Gregg cowrote one tune on LCB. He wrote 4 of 8 songs on "Laid Back".

With that said, and at this stage, I'll be glad to get anything that's new. I just hope there's a fair percentage of songs written by Gregg & Warren.

Really dont like the sound on LCB. T Bone also produced the latest Robert Randolph CD but it doesnt sound as muddy as Gregg's CD

MartinD28, that's the thing, I've never been a big fan of Gregg's solo work in general, Laid Back included. Laid Back and the Tour '74 album and Gregg's solo work from that period is way too slick and glossy and "70s soft rock" for me. That is why Low Country Blues was such a pleasant surprise for me.

Ironically, the very same reason some people don't like it is because it doesn't sound like Gregg's other solo albums, but that is probably why I like it so much.

I prefer the raw, gritty blues of Low Country Blues, but that is just my opinion.

Now all they need is a record deal, some time between all the schedules to record and of course 10 to 14 songs. Stay tuned! So betwwen the Mule and the ABB, Warren just needs to write roughly 40 songs including some rejects for the projects. Oh and have the material strong enough to match up to previous Mule and ABB albums. Should be able to have that done by the Beacon shows.

Gregg enjoyed working with T-Bone because he is a lazy artist and T-Bone is the type of producer that takes over the project. In fairness to Gregg, he had health issues so understandable that T-Bone helped guide him through it. Showing up at the studio and laying down vocals is a little different than writing an album and building it from the ground up.

Working with T-Bone on an album of covers may be the only way we see another ABB release. I said the same thing years ago about an album of covers. Whether T-Bone is the man to help put it together is the question?

I love LCB, including the production. To me, it fits the type of songs on the record.

Any new ABB would be good ABB music. I'm pretty sure that between Gregg, Warren, Derek and Oteil they can put a dozen songs together that would impress.

I don't see how you can compare Laid Back and LCB, totally different musical direction.

It's like comparing AFE to a Mule studio project.

I am with you on that one Rob. Laid Back is a good album but I like LCB better too. I might get lynched for this but I also like Searching For Simplicity better than Laid Back although it too has a bit of a slick sound. Fave of all is the pulled One More Try where it's mostly Gregg plus a guitar or piano. I love that stuff.

T-Bone has mostly worked with solo artists and used his musicians. With the ABB that wouldn't be the case. I don't hear the bass as being muddy. It's acoustic bass and resonates differently than an electric through an amp. I think it fit the music and feel of the album perfectly. I expect a different feel and sound even if T. Bone works on the next ABB record. I'm just excited Butch is on board with a new album. With the success of LCB, MiM, and Revelator they may be rethinking their vialbility. they will also be putting out a record that isn't full of songs they've been playing live for 2 years as they did with Hittin' The Note. if you want to sell albums don't play the songs to a tape trading audience for 2 tours and expect them to be excited when the new disc is full of songs they've already heard and have.

Most ABB fans are as stubborn as they come. They only cherish loud guitars and long solos, not understanding the finer, authentic points in the music.

I don't love all of T-Bone's work, but his work with Gregg was aces!
