CD PICKS - SEPTEMBER 2019 The Allman Betts Band – Down To The River (BMG)


In December 2017, Devon Allman organised a concert at the historic Fillmore West in San Francisco to both honour the music and memory of his father (founding Allman Brothers Band keyboardist and singer, Gregg Allman) and also debut his new band, The Devon Allman Project. This concert also marked the beginning of a partnership with Duane Betts, son of founding Allman Brothers Band guitarist and singer, Dickie Betts.


In 2018, following the Project band world tour, Devon and Duane circled back to their roots for an ambitious next step, calling up their old friend Berry Duane Oakley, son of the Allman Brothers Band founding bassist, the late Berry Oakley and floated the idea of joining them. Berry agreed and together they recruited slide guitarist Johnny Stachela, drummer John Lum and percussionist R Scott Bryan – the Allman Betts Band was born.


Enlisting producer Matt Ross-Spang, the band booked the famed Muscle Shoals Sound Studios and brought in Peter Levin and Chuck Leavell as guests, adding organ and piano. Motivated by classic recording techniques and vintage gear that Muscle Shoals provides, they cut the album live; no computers and no digital editing. Setting up as one in the studio, they tracked nine songs on two inch analogue tape, resulting in this brilliant debut album, Down To The River, available on both CD and vinyl.


For a subsequent world tour they recruited former Dixie Chicks keyboardist John Ginty. The band’s first performance was March 26th 2019, 50 years to the date after The Allman Brothers Band first jammed together in Jacksonville, Florida.


108 Michael Lee – Michael Lee (Ruf Records)


After more than six million YouTube views for his amazing rendition of B. B. King’s, The Thrill Is Gone (a major highlight of last year’s American The Voice TV show), it’s no wonder that singer / guitarist Michael Lee has been tipped as the bluesman set to drag that genre of music into the mainstream. “Being from Dallas, I’m heavily influenced by Freddie King and Delbert McClinton, but I also bring my own style to the party. It’s retro- Texas rhythm and blues with a helping of rock’n’roll.”


As well as live vocal duties with the iconic B. B. King Blues Band, Michael Lee now releases his debut solo album. It of course includes a soulful version of the aforementioned The Thrill Is Gone. Opening track Heart Of Stone features fuzzbox guitars and a punchy horn section, whilst Don’t Leave Me switches to a broken man vocal. Love Her has a breezy strut about it and Can’t Kick You is a bluesy ballad. Then there’s the raw and sparse Fool Of Oz, plus the brass-bolstered Here I Am and moody closing track Go Your Own Way.


Michael Lee - a new bluesman on the block.


Croweded House – The Very Very Best Of (Universal) Crowded House, led by New Zealand/ Australian brothers Neil and Tim Finn, first broke on to the UK charts in the summer of 1987 with the superb Don’t Dream It’s Over.


This beautifully packaged double-LP greatest hits collection is pressed on 180-gram heavyweight black vinyl (plus a useful Download Card). There are 19 tracks in all. Side A: Something So Strong; Weather With You; It’s Only Natural; Chocolate Cake; Fall At Your Feet. Side B: Distant Sun; Better Be Home Soon; Four Seasons In One Day; Don’t Dream It’s Over; Mean To Me. Side 3: Locked Out; Don’t Stop Now; Pineapple Head; Instinct; Fingers Of Love. Side 4: Private Universe; Not The Girl You Think You Are; Nails In My Feet; Pour La Monde.


Great to see vinyl making such a healthy comeback!
