1974 Gregg Allman – Midnight Rider

1974 Gregg Allman – Midnight Rider 

The Allman Brothers second album, Idlewild South, was recorded in 1970. This was almost a year before Duane’s tragic death in a motorcycle accident the next year. Gregg wrote one of the songs on the album, Midnight Rider

While the Allman Brothers found most of their success after Duane’s death, the band eventually began to fall apart. During the period that the band recorded Brothers and Sisters and had their biggest hit single when Rambling Man reached #2 on the Hot 100, Gregg was also recording Laid Back, his first solo album.

The lead single from Gregg’s album was a cover of Midnight Rider. Gregg’s single peaked at #19 on the Hot 100 in 1974.
