Allman’s ‘Skydog’ Set Comes To Vinyl

Rounder’s widely-praised seven-CD box set of 2013, Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective, is to be released as a limited edition, 14 LP box set on 180 gram vinyl. Limited to 1000, individually numbered copies, it is available to pre-order here exclusively on PledgeMusic.

The link also includes an “unboxing” video where you can view the contents of a set that features a 56-page book, with rare and never-before-seen photos and essays by journalist Scott Schinder and Duane’s daughter, Galadrielle Allman.

Produced by Galadrielle and the esteemed reissue producer Bill Levenson, Skydog features all 129 tracks from the original CD edition, covering the full career of the late and much-revered guitarist. Early recordings with his brother Gregg, in such groups as the Escorts, Allman Joys and Hour Glass, are included alongside his studio work with such artists as Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Boz Scaggs, Clarence Carter, Arthur Conley and Delaney & Bonnie.

Also in the set are Allman’s sessions for such performers as Laura Nyro, Lulu and Doris Duke, several of his recordings with Derek and the Dominos and, of course, a generous selection of material by the Allman Brothers Band. A live jam session with the Grateful Dead also features.
