Review by Jim Allford
Devon Allman is the son of Gregg Allman of the renown Allman’s Bros. Band. The band is also made up of: George Potsos on Bass and Gabriel Strange on drums which is a solid back up for whatever Devon needs. The 11 song CD is filled with blues, jams, etc… and it will not disappoint anyone at all.
I must admit, there are alot of flavors and reflections of the Allman’s Bros. Band on it and how can you not love the Allman’s Bros Band? The highlights of the CD include: “COULD GET DANGEROUS” - the first track on the CD which is a up tempo blues song. It’s a kicker. Devon’s guitar playing and the harp weaving in-between his guitar riffs fills all the gaps… pure and solid.
“SALVATION” is a mellow blues number that will take you away. It has a nice sax in the background but for some reason I can hear a Hammond B3 screaming in the background and doing some solos. I guess it’s just me? “ENDLESS DIAMOND” is a simple rock song with some nice riffs going on that will have you bouncing to it when you have it cranked up. The guitar is a stand out as his back up band is right on the money. ”ALLAH” is an instrumental that has a dose of Santana in it… a nice jam-band type of song that would be appreciated by all. You’ll definitely hear the Allman’s signature on this cut once again. Overall, the CD is worth getting and you’ll be happy you did.
There is no doubt that Devon Allman’s Honeytribe has a very bright future and the great part about it is that they are ‘real down to earth people with good hearts.
I know Devon would appreciate anyone buying the CD. Now go out and get a copy and let them know I sent you. My hats off to you guys, job well done. Thank you for giving me the honor to review the CD.
