What's yours?



I think mine is the Dickey Betts and Great Southern 1977 album.

Low country blues is up there too.

Does this include all 'side' projects, or just solo albums under one person's name?

4. Betts - Highway Call
5. Tedeschi Trucks Band - Mad Up Mind
6. Gregg - Searchin For Simplicity
7. Derek Trucks Band - Songlines
8. Betts - Collectors #1
9. Gov't Mule - Deep End Vol 1
10. Gov't Mule - Life Before Insanity

Laid Back.

Sea Level's Cats on the Coast is a great album, too, but I don't think it counts as a solo album.

I do love Highway Call, but Laid Back wins hands down. The Gregg Allman Tour is a great album, too, with Cowboy contributing nicely to that one.

Since Tim expanded his list, I'll add that the Mule's first album blew my socks off, and Dose was also very good.

Songlines and Already Free are favorites, too.

Heres my Top 10: Pretty much this, but the more I listen to the DTB, the higher each album goes. So, in a couple of years, this list could change drastically

Highway Call
Sea Level (1st album)
Laid Back
Everybody's Talkin'
Already Free
Just Before The Bullets Fly
Soul Serenade
Low Country Blues
Man In Motion
Joyful Noise



Just out of the Top 10, but have to be mentioned:
Songlines
Pattern Disruptive
Seaching for Simplicity
Revelator

I agree, but the version of Soulshine is awful.

Laid Back is one of my favorite albums all time, regardless

I went with solo albums only and not group albums even though it could be argued that DB & GS is a band record and not a solo album but I consider Great Southern to be Dickey's "solo" band so I take those as solo records.

Searching For Simplicity
Dickey Betts & Great Southern
Laid Back
Pattern Disruptive
Tales Of Ordinary Madness

I'm really fond of Just Before The Bullets Fly too which seems to be thought of as a throwaway continuation of I'm No Angel, but I think the songs and performances are better and the production is not as 80's as I'm No Angel.

Solo Albums: #1 Gregg Allman-Laid Back, #2 Warren-Bonnaroo
As far as DTB & Mule albums it's difficult to choose. DTB- Live GA Theater & Roadsongs & Mule- Mullenium & Live Roseland are up there for me.

Chuck's "What's In The Bag", his Christmas album, is pretty cool too.

I probably spin Laid Back and Highway Call the most. I also like Gregg's 80's stuff.

All good picks.

Nice that you mentioned Chuck's Christmas album - overlooked but a nice album. The cut "It's Just Not Christmas" is a really nice tune.

Two I haven't seen mentioned that I'd rate very highly are Jimmy Herring's Lifeboat and Subject to Change Without Notice. Both excellent studio albums.

My favorite live album by any ABB related member including the ABB itself is Gov't Mule's Live With A Little Help From Our Friends - and you get Warren, Woody, Chuck, Derek and Jimmy on that one.

They're on my list bro -- also Left Turn, by We 3 (Chuck, Jaimoe, Lamar)
Frogwings' Croakin' at Toads is too -- ABB meets fusion at killer live gig, & w/both, a chance to hear how good Butchie & Jaimoe are on their own too

Highway Call for me hands down. Overall it stands as one of the best country albums. Great playing all around.

Play Let Nature Sing driving down a back country road on a beautiful spring day with the windows rolled down. Doesn't get any better.

I think Govt Mule and Dose both deserve a lot of props. The ABB were a very busy touring band at the time and Warren and Allen were arguably the hardest-working men in show business back then. Those are still my two favorite Mule albums by a country mile.

On a similar note, Derek's run of Soul Serenade, Joyful Noise and Live At The Georgia Theater all took place while he was absolutely killing it with the ABB at the same time. A very impressive body of work. Derek Trucks was doing some work back in 2000-2004, son!
