Rendezvous With The Blues!!
By Uncle Joe's Tunes
That is one song on the album and would have been a better for this album. Mostly blues and covers and originals. Gregg Allman sings in his fine, gritty voice and the band cooks behind him. Not long overdone songs and the one ABB song is made over to sound fresh and different. I rate it four stars and worth buying the CD or the download from iTunes. Uncle Joe’s Tunz!
Not a big Allman bro's fan...
...at all, but this is one of my favorite albums of all time. Very bluesy. Gregg knows how to break it down. Buy it.
A Must For Gregg & Blues Fans
Don't let my nickname fool you. Even if you are a fan of another band but dig Greggs voice over the years then you will dig this cd. With the exception of one or two of the tracks that I don't personally care for, the rest of the cd is great. He's one of the best white blues singers around and shows it here. That funky (swampy as it was put) version of Whippin Post is awesome as is Redezvous With The Blues and Memphis In The Meantime. If your expecting to rock out on this you're not. But if you're into the blues & Gregg sounds, then you'll dig it. It's worth the money in my opinion. Peace.
Gregg Allman, classic
First, look no further than the first track, Whippin' Post, which is a bluesy and what his website calls it "swampy". Nobody thought he couldn't pulled this off, but he did, and succedded. House of Blues is a very good track, and it features his bluesy side. Silence Ain't Golden Anymore is also a solid tune, which is another slow song. Rendezvous With the Blues is OK, but unless you're a true Gregg Allman fan, I wouldn't buy it. Neighbor, Neighbor is a song that is an excellent song that I listen to over and over. Memphis in the Meantime is also a very good song. Overall if you're a real Gregg fan, I'd buy the whole thing, but if you like some of his stuff, I'd buy Whippin' Post, House of Blues, Memphis in the Meantime, and that'd be it. If you like those songs, then buy the whole album.
If you're more into the Greg lead songs with the the Allman Brothers you'll love this album. The songs are all have good riffs and his voice is right on. I've seen him and the Brothers live recently and he's better then ever.
