“By the time that I started playing guitar, the sound of Duane Allman’s slide was almost an obsession, His playing on ‘Layla’ is still one of the high-water marks for me. The spirit, the joy, the recklessness, and the inevitability of it. My dad would play that record for me and my brother to fall asleep to and further sear it into my DNA.” – Derek Trucks
Boz Scaggs conjures up drama when he sings and his delivery begs us to join him on his journey. And let us not forget that he can play intensely emotive and nimble guitar lines seemingly effortlessly.
“So; you can’t just start this record and hurry along. You actually have to listen to it.”
‘Rich Man’ is a culmination of his journeys, both physically and spiritually, and all his traveling has served him well. The best part of this album is the amazing textures and sonic backdrops that Bramhall has sculpted.
Gregg Allman’s new album Low Country Blues is, in a word, phenomenal.
