    5 CD Allman Brothers Box Set February 2020

    Pretty nice 10LP or 5CD package coming out to celebrate the 50th anniversary:

    The retrospective is produced by Allman Brothers Band historians and aficionados Bill Levenson, John Lynskey and Kirk West, and contains no fewer than 61 Allman Brothers Band classics, live performances and rarities spanning their 45-year career. It has seven previously unreleased tracks, going from the beginning of the band’s story until the end.

    The Allmans’ original 1969 demo of the Muddy Waters song ‘Trouble No More’ opens up the set, offering a new introduction to the magical combination of Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, Dickey Betts, Duane Allman, Jaimoe and Gregg Allman that came together that year. It was the first demo recorded for the debut album that started their emergence as one of the most important and creative bands in rock history.

    At the other end of the collection, the set concludes with a live performance of ‘Trouble No More’ from the Allman Brothers Band’s last show at the Beacon Theatre in New York, which brings the retrospective full circle. That previously unreleased ‘Trouble No More’ demo is available for streaming now, and for immediate download with pre-orders of the digital album.



    The ten LPs in the deluxe vinyl box set of Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection are packaged in five gatefold jackets housed in a wood veneer wrapped slipcase with gold graphics, together with a 56-page book. The vinyl set is also to be released as a limited edition colour vinyl pressing via uDiscover Music, with each LP pressed on orange and red splatter coloured vinyl to evoke the inside of a peach.

    The 5CD edition will be packaged in a 12-panel softpack, which comes in a visually distinctive slipcase and features an 88-page booklet. Both of these physical versions have a near-9000 word essay on the band’s history by John Lynskey; unreleased band photos and newly-shot images of memorabilia from the Big House Museum, in the Allmans’ adopted hometown Macon, GA; and a recap of the 13 different incarnations of the band’s line-up over the years.

    The digital version of the album will mirror the 5CD edition and be available for streaming and download, including as an Apple Digital Master. All of the recordings in the set have been newly mastered by Jason NeSmith at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, Georgia and sound better than ever.

    Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection is arranged chronologically and thematically to represent all of those line-ups, grouped into five distinct eras representing the various stages of the band’s recording and performance development. They’re divided by the group’s stays on Capricorn, Arista and Epic, as well as their own Peach imprint.

    Very little I don't have already. Sure the quality is great, but can't see buying 5 CDs for a handful of unreleased material.

    I got the Dreams box plus a bunch of Beacon live material and many of the studio albums - I think I can sit this one out.

    I own the Japanese Mini-Lp Box Set of the ABB (a beauty), Dreams, and all the other studeo output. Plus some live. I won't hesitate from picking up this lavish 5 CD box set. It will sell for much more in a few years from now. The ABB are one of my all time favourite bands. Saw then 3 nights in Boston, what an experience. I have a nice box set of Low Country Road by Gregg with a beautiful signed lithograph that sits prominently framed on my 2nd floor.

    I never saw the ABB in the 70s but the shows I caught in NY State and Boston were simply spellbinding/stellar. If no one else wants them, I do!!!

    Where did you find the pricing? Sixty sounds totally reasonable to me.

    That’s not a bad price. It looks really nice but I’m not sure if the few unreleased tracks make it worth going for.

    One advantage it appears to have over the Dreams box is the lack of pre-ABB cover tunes that you probably don't want to hear all that often, no solo tracks from the ABB hiatus period, and above all, no Cher.

    I just pre-ordered my copy on Amanzon.ca for $64 Canadian. That's about $40 USD. Not bad, eh?
