The Allman Brother’s Band celebrate 50th anniversary with ‘Trouble No More’ boxset
The 50th anniversary of The Allman Brother’s Band is to be celebrated with a career-spanning Trouble No More retrospective boxset…
The new collection will be available as a 10LP deluxe vinyl boxset, bringing together a half century of classics, live performances, rarities and seven previously unreleased tracks, including the band’s very first recording – their original 1969 demo of Trouble No More.
When Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, Dickey Betts, Duane Allman, Jaimoe, and Gregg Allman finally coalesced in 1969 as TheAllman Brothers Band, after stints in other bands and musical endeavours – some alone, some with each other – the group’s very first informal jam together was the stomping Muddy Waters song, Trouble No More. This song, which has remained unreleased for more than half a century, fittingly opens the new, aptly-titled Allman Brothers Band career retrospective.
The boxset pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the pioneering Southern rock legends and their incredible body of work. Produced by Allman Brothers Band historians and aficionados Bill Levenson, John Lynskey and Kirk West, it offers a massive selection of 61 Allman Brothers Band classics, live performances and rarities from across their 45-year career, and includes seven previously unreleased tracks that takes the listener from the very beginning until the very end. The collection is bookended with a live performance of Trouble No More from the Allman Brothers Band’s final show at New York’s Beacon Theatre that brought the band’s legend to a close and which brings this retrospective full circle.
The deluxe vinyl box set of Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection beautifully presents the Allman Brothers Band’s legacy across 10 LPs packaged in five gatefold jackets housed in a wood veneer wrapped slipcase with gold graphics and accompanied by a 56-page book. The vinyl set will also be released as a limited edition colour vinyl collection via the online music retailer uDiscover with each LP pressed on orange and red splatter coloured vinyl evoking the insides of a peach.
The anniversary boxset will be available from 28 February via Island/Mercury/UMC. Pre-order your copy here now.
