"Just Another Rider" (2011)

Produced by T-Bone Burnett, Allman's 2011 solo album Low Country Blues was yet another unexpected return to form, and its sole original – co-written by Gregg and Haynes – captured the way Gregg could summon up the old evocative power. Sung in a voice deeper and more seen-it-all than ever before, and driven by a horn-imbued arrangement that recalled Laid Back, "Just Another Rider" was an apt, age-aware sequel of sorts to "Midnight Rider": "Remind you to take it slow/One step at a time, baby."
