Laid Back, hands down. One of my favorite albums, period.

Gregg Allman Tour and One More Try are close seconds, followed by Highway Call.

Highway Call...Richard Betts

Isn't it cute how the new posters always start the same threads we've all responded to a hundred times before?

Laid Back without question, nothing else is close, next would be The Gregg Allman Tour.

Yeah, i thought it had been done before. But oh well, I still want to know what solo LPs were loved!! To tell you the truth, I would guess that every thread that could have ever been started about the ABB has been done before.

Laid Back-probably one of my top Allman Bros related albums overall. Not one weak song on this album, which is hard to believe for a solo effort. Highway Call is a very good album as well though.

I flip a silver dollar and listen to Highway Call or Laid Back. Both unique, excellent and two totally different styles of music. What is that talk about Southern Rock anyway ?

Laid back again....

I must be the only ABB fan who actually likes Playin Up A Storm more than Laid Back.

Laid Back is classic. I think it is the best album of the 1970's.
But I am a Gregg fan first and ABB fan second.
Gregg's music affects me like no other music.
I also love Playing Up A Strom and the GA Tour.
Who else would tour with a 24 piece orcestra? Brilliant!!!

I think you are one of the few who likes Playin' Up A Storm more than most Gregg Allman albums. There are a few nice songs on there, but, like his 80s albums, I don't think the production has aged well. There is something timeless about Laid Back and The Gregg Allman Tour, which is highly underrated.

A bold choice. Highly underrated LP. I agree the production is a bit dated but the songs and the vocals are top notch. One of my favorites for sure.

#1 Laid Back
#2 Sea Level: On The Edge
#3 Highway Call

I like both Laid Back and Highway Call but probably played the latter more. I just about wore out One More Try during a six month period. On that one you really get the impression that Gregg found sanity in music and little else. There is no adornment on many tracks and you get a true glimpse of a musician singing only from his heart. Some really moving music on One More Try.

Not to be redundant, but Highway Call and Laid Back as a tie...

Richard Betts - Highway Call. A pefect record with a great mix of guest artists. He really put together a diverse group of pickers. Then I would say Laid Back - Gregg Allman.

A great period of creativity between the two.

The Gregg Allman Tour is wonderful for "Double Cross" and especially "Oncomming Traffic," but I could do without the Boyer/Talton sections, and "Dreams" is lacking to me.

To me, Laid Back is the masterpiece, with Highway Call only slightly behind. Veeery slightly.

After that, the solo LP's are all lacking, IMHO. Gregg's 80's albums have as many topical throwaways as solid songs, and Playin' Up a Storm is excellent in spots, but too slick in others (did we need "Matthew's Arrival"?).

Dickey's Great Southern albums are solid, but a little safe. A lot of the songs sound exactly the same. Pattern Disruptive is actually very strong, but a little too 80's sounding for my blood.

Laid Back and Highway Call are the albums that stand up against anything the ABB did.
