Southbound is a compilation record by The Hour Glass, featuring outtakes from each of the group's two albums for Liberty Records, The Hour Glass (1967) and Power of Love (1968) as well as material recorded by Gregg Allman in 1968 and 1969 with session musicians in order to prevent Liberty Records from suing the group due to their disbanding. All of the material had been previously released on the 1992 EMI reissues of The Hour Glass and Power of Love, both now out of print.
