As we honor The Allman Brothers Band as FUV Essentials, we're also exploring the final album from the band's longtime leader (after Duane, of course), Gregg Allman. Southern Blood is a farewell and also a look back at the musical road of his life. Or as Gregg puts it in the lyrics of the last song he wrote, "My Only True Friend": "the music of my soul."

In this one-hour special, get an inside look at Allman's choice of deeply meaningful cover songs on the album and the process of recording them, including commentary from album producer Don Was, Allman's manager Michael Lehman, Jackson Browne, and Allman himself.
