Laid Back is the debut studio solo album by singer???songwriter Gregg Allman, released in October 1973 by Capricorn Records. Allman,
best known as the vocalist/lyricist/pianist of the Allman Brothers Band, first began considering a solo career after internal disagreements
with that group. He developed the album as a small creative outlet wherein he would assume full control, and he co???produced the
album alongside Johnny Sandlin. Laid Back was largely recorded in March 1973 at Capricorn Sound Studios in Macon, Georgia, with
additional recording taking place at the Record Plant in New York City.
The album explores Allman???s varying influences, including rhythm and blues and soul music. It consists of several cover songs, originals,
and a traditional hymn, and contains performances from a host of musicians, most notably Scott Boyer and Tommy Talton on guitars, Bill
Stewart on drums, and Charlie Hayward on bass guitar. The album was created while Allman also worked on Brothers and Sisters, the
fourth Allman Brothers album. The album title was a studio term Allman coined for relaxing a song???s tempo, while its cover was painted
by Abdul Mati Klarwein.
