Album Review

In a way, Playin' Up a Storm doesn't really highlight Gregg Allman's strengths, since it's a little smoother and soul-inflected than his work with the Allman Brothers. Then again, that's not a problem; after all, why make a solo album that's exactly like your full-time gig? Consequently, Playin' Up a Storm is a well-made, expertly performed set of blues-rock, soul-pop, and straight-ahead rock & roll. There aren't any true classics here, but the thing that makes it one of Allman's best solo efforts is the terrific performances. Not only is he in fine voice, delivering each song with conviction, but his supporting band — featuring such luminaries as Dr. John and Bill Payne — is sterling. All the grooves are in the pocket, the sound is enticing, and the overall effect is just right. Not an earth-shattering record, but it will please true Allman fans.

His Best

It seems the peak of Greg Allman's creative gift culminates into this wonderful collection of songs. "Sweet Feelin'" is the high along with "One More Try" while the other tunes are not far behind. It's been about thirty years since the original release and the music sounds as relevant as ever.

Where's "The Brightest Smile In Town"?

One of the great Gregg Allman vocals is on "The Brightest Smile In Town" that was on the LP version. Why isn't it on here?? Gregg gets 5 stars!! ITUNES gets 1.

Gregg Allman delivers here.

Good Songs and melodies. A bit too synthesized but that was the time era then. Looking past the electric sounds and into the music itself the songs are really good. My personal fav's are Come and Go Blues and One More Try (the first and last songs). I also like the Ray Charles song Brightest Smile in Town which is song #3 and not listed here on iTunes. Neither is song #4 Bring it on Back. I wish iTunes would get with it. Brightest Smile is excellent and should be on your iPod.
