Southern Rock for the Apocalypse, Part III

Goin’ Down Slow – Duane Allman

When Duane Allman died in 1971, the world lost one of the best slide guitar players in the history of recorded music. By this point, Allman had become famous as part of his Allman Brother Band, but his influence on American music began before he and his younger brother former their band in 1969.

His original band Hourglass didn’t have much commercial success, but Allman also performed as a session musician for several major acts at FAME studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and recorded a few tuns as a solo musician, as in the case of “Goin’ Down Slow.”
