Final Studio Album!

Rounder releases the final studio album from rock and roll legend, Gregg Allman. The album has been a long time in the making and represents the culmination of one of the most prolific careers in classic rock history.
The album is pressed on 150g black vinyl LP and is housed in a gatefold jacket. Also includes full album download card + 2 live bonus tracks.
Produced by Don Was and recorded in Muscle Shoals, AL at the renowned Fame Studios, this record reaches back to the sound and recording techniques that first inspired the early Allman Brothers records. Guests include The McCrary Sisters, Buddy Miller, and Jackson Browne.
"The final album by Gregg Allman, who died in May, is a moving farewell statement à la twilight masterworks by Leonard Cohen and David Bowie. Yet while Southern Blood is rich with intimations of mortality, it's easygoing, too, with a laid-back generosity that recalls Allman's kindest Seventies work see his warm take on Lowell George's Southern-rock salvo 'Willin',' or versions of tender folk reckonings by his friends Tim Buckley and Jackson Browne. The most moving moment is the searching blues 'My Only True Friend,' sung as a conversation with his brother Duane. 'It feels like home is just around the bend,' he sings. It's the elegiac sound of gracefully moving on." - Rolling Stone, 50 Best Albums of 2017
