The first thing that hits you is the voice, worn around the edges and full of the heartbreak that comes with life and love.  As Michael Allman wails through “If Dreams Were Money,” his world-weary vocals bringing up inevitable comparisons to his famous father, and the sheer power of the music seeps into your soul.  Soon it hits you, and you realize this is the real thing.

If Michael’s evocative singing was the only attraction on Michael Allman and Hard Labor Creek, it would still be worth hearing, but there is a lot more going on than that. Some of the most gifted musicians in Georgia, from young slide guitar phenom Tony Tyler to Motown alumnus and keyboard legend Ike Stubblefield, contribute to the overall sound of this remarkable record. Tyler and Stubblefield are essential parts of the sound of Hard Labor Creek, adding just the right touch without overpowering the song. 

Still, the spotlight is firmly on Michael, who wrote four of the songs on the CD, and delivers each tune with the kind of thoughtful approach that squeezes the inner meaning out of every word.  His playing on “It Ain’t Me” reveals him to be a solid keyboardist, and the lyrics in songs like “Runnin’Alone Again” and “Circus Full of Clowns” address universal topics like love and loss in a way that any listener can relate to.
