Synopsis

Amazon.com
Gregg Allman's "One More Try: An Anthology" is a most unusual retrospective, for the 34 songs on the two CDs include only eight performances that have ever been released before. Perhaps this is an admission by Allman himself that his solo albums have been over-produced in a way that distracted from his primary asset, his blues-drenched baritone. That voice dominates the stripped-down demos, pre-orchestration alternate takes and live performances that make up the 26 previously unreleased tracks. Many of these rarities suffer from a lack of rhythmic push, but to hear Allman growling and purring his way through his favorite Muddy Waters, Jackson Browne and Bobby Bland tunes, as well as his own originals, is a genuine treat. Highlights include a jam with Johnny Winter, Buddy Miles, and Berry Oakley on "Wasted Words," an acoustic-guitar-and-vocal version of "Come and Go Blues" and a soulful reading of Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman." --Geoffrey Himes
 

CD Reviews

TALK ABOUT A COLLECTOR'S ITEM...
Mike Zlotnicki | Nashville, Tennessee,USA | 10/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I still remember first seeing the ad for this set in early 1997, and KNOWING I'd be buying the day it was released, and I did, and not a day passes I don't thank God I have a copy before it went out of print. Truly a collector's item in every sense of the term. Example ? Well, how 'bout JOHNNY WINTER on axe, BERRY OAKLEY on bass, BUDDY MILES on drums, and Gregory Lenoir on organ and vocals doin' " Wasted Words," plus 33 more tracks !!! If you love Gregg...just buy it !!!"
One More Try Seems Like a Lot More Than That

"I love the mellow, rhythmic miracles from Gregg Allman's unreleased, secret solos. In this CD, you can hear him become. You can hear his pain, his struggles, his love, his passion, his angst. Full of internal struggles, this heartfelt, kind & blessed musician, puts a current spin on EVERY TRACK he records. I don't feel I am listening to something written years ago--or recorded years ago. Maybe that is part of what I gained from living & being born in America. Maybe it is a BIG PART what a true musician can do for us. Make us FEEL. I feel $200 would not have been too much for a CD I never get tired of because it has MUCH variety,talent, depth. This is music from the King of Southern Rock I can feel deep down in my Grinchiest heart anytime of the day or night. I LOVE it!"

"There's no such thing as too much Gregg Allman. This 2 CD Set will not disappoint the Allman fan!! In fact, it is a must have!! The discs highlight Gregg's ability to take an audio sensation and turn it into a physical reaction. You feel the pain in the sound. I am an avid blues fan, and few, if any, elicit the response I feel when I listen to Gregg Allman. His vocal style is a window into his soul, and he's giving the listener a glimpse in. This set is a treasure with it's previously unreleased tracks and remastered tracks!"
