Episode 36 – Randall Bramblett

Rob and Seth sit down with Randall Bramblett in his own house and after first discussing his two most recent brilliant releases “Juke Joint at the Edge of the World” and “Devil Music,” they go back to the 70s and move through his fascinating career. We learn how working with Tommy Talton and the band Cowboy led to him meeting and ultimately touring with Gregg Allman. He speaks of his days with the “jazz arm” of the Allman Brothers Band community, Sea Level. Bramblett also speaks of working with Levon Helm, and meeting and touring with Steve Winwood. His success with Winwood would unfold into him being a vital part of the enormously successful 1994 Traffic reunion tour, and we get some insight into that Bramblett era. Widespread Panic fans might be curious to learn about how Randall ended up in that family, and what it was like to tour with them while their guitarist’s health was rapidly declining. We also get a follow-up call in the outtro during which Randall speaks about his most recent Atlanta play (it was a DOOZIE) and he reflects on his friends who have recently passed – Col. Bruce Hampton, Gregg Allman and Jimmy Nalls. The introduction also includes a brief interview Seth conducted with the young jamband Spafford. wTnS is Produced by Rob Turner and Engineered by Josh Thane of Wonder Dog Sounds (wonderdogsounds.com) Inside Out w/ Turner and Seth: insideoutwtns.com Twitter: @InsideoutWTNS Instagram: www.instagram.com/insideoutwtns Facebook: www.facebook.com/insideoutwTnS
