Gregg AllmanNo Stranger to the Dark (Epic/Legacy) No Stranger to the Dark cops its title from, and opens with, Allman's bad-boy theme "I'm No Angel," followed by 14 classics from his solo works. It's not enough to praise his spectacularly earthy vocals or his impeccable musicianship, it's that covers like "Slip Away," "Before the Bullets Fly," and "The Dark End of the Street" are as imbued with gospel fervor as "House of Blues" and "Ocean Awash With Gunwale." Pure Southern colorblind soul.
