“For the first time in about 30 years, I brought my road band into the studio, and man, that made it one of the best recording experiences of my career,” Allman told Uncut last year. “It took me about eight years to bring these cats together, and I couldn’t be happier. Don Was understands how important communication is, and that made it easy. He never tried to complicate things, and that’s what made him the perfect guy to produce the album.”
