The music of our heart is still heavy reflecting on Gregg Allman’s passing. I am forever thankful for the blues music he has introduced me to with The Allman Brothers Band and on his poignant solo albums.
I was recently acknowledged by Gregg’s official store with a thank you for pre-purchasing his final album Southern Blood.
Thank you for placing an early order for Gregg Allman’s SOUTHERN BLOOD vinyl (out 9/8). We know many of you have been waiting awhile for the finished album, and you placed an order without a lot of information. As our way of showing our appreciation, we’re letting you know:
You will receive the limited edition SOUTHERN BLOOD LP at no extra charge. None of these items will be part of the future regular edition.
(a) Heavyweight, hardwood colored vinyl
(b) Portrait lithograph (12” x 12”)
(c) Two bonus live tracks (included with a download card).
(d) Full album download card
That left me reassured as I have come to appreciate how accommodating the Allman community and Music Today have been over the years.
In anticipation of next month’s order, I am sharing this recent video of “My Only True Friend” which reveals the warm spirit found inside Gregg’s recording session.
