Acclaimed 2013 Box Set Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
Chronicles the Groundbreaking Guitarist's Career, from Garage Bands and R&B Session Work to The Allman Brothers Band and Derek & The Dominos!
Duane Allman (known to his bandmates as Skydog) was one of the defining musicians of the rock era, rated second only to Jimi Hendrix in Rolling Stone's list of 100 greatest guitarists. A founding member, with his brother Gregg, of the Allman Brothers Band, Duane was also active as a session musician, and as a member of the all-star Derek & the Dominos.
Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective (originally released on CD in March 2013) received nothing but the highest praise from the press and music communities, which heralded the collection as a must-have for all rock music lovers. Uncut proclaimed, "To say the [box set] has been worth the wait would be a gross understatement. Skydog is an addictive, endlessly captivating aural history of a towering figure in rock history, with each disc forming a distinct chapter in the sprawling narrative."
The 14LP-set, produced by Duane's daughter Galadrielle Allman and esteemed reissue producer Bill Levenson, ranges from his early recordings (with Gregg) in bands such as The Escorts, The Allman Joys, and Hour Glass; to his studio work with Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Boz Scaggs, Delaney & Bonnie, and many others; to a live jam session with the Grateful Dead.
The set includes performances available only in this collection, many classic Allman Brothers songs, and a collector's cache of rare singles plus a 56-page book with rare and never-before seen photos and essays by Scott Schinder and Galadrielle Allman.
