Thanks John. I knew Hank Marvin did a cover but was not sure of the originators or even its name/title.

Hi Alan, I have always been a great fan of the Allman Brothers and recently received a CD Low Country Blues by Greg Allman. Dickie Betts wrote a number of the Allman Bros. hits including, Jessica, Rambling Man and Southbound, the latter, probably my favourite. Sad to think that most of them have left us.
