Crafted with help from Dr. John and producer T Bone Burnett (Elvis Costello, the Crazy Heart soundtrack), Allman's latest, Low Country Blues, pays homage to the music he fell in love with as a youngster. The 63-year-old singer's craggy vocals on a slow-burning version of Skip James' ''Devil Got My Woman'' serve as a reminder that his youth is far behind him, though his world-weary air perfectly fits the material. And he cheers up nicely with the soulful ''I Believe I'll Go Back Home.'' B
