Here’s another video from the upcoming All My Friends: Celebrating The Songs & Voice Of Gregg Allman: Gregg Allman and his old roommate and songwriting mentor Jackson Browne doing “Melissa.”
I am really proud of the songwriting sidebar story in One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band about the deep impact that Jackson and other California singer/songwriters had on Gregg. It hasn’t been discussed too widely. Let me know what you thought about that.
And one more thing. Check out this version of “Ain’t Wasting Time No More,” sung by Junior Mack and performed by Jaimoe’s Jassz Band. Now this is how you cover a great song!
