Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective

Format: Box Set (Limited Edition)
Label: Rounder Records
Release Date: 12 March 2013

Duane Allman, one of rock’s all-time greats, will get a fitting tribute to his legacy in March when Rounder Records releases a comprehensive seven-disc box set. Curated by Scott Billington and Bill Levenson and produced by Levenson and Allman’s daughter Galladrielle, Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective spans the guitarist’s too-short career.

This fabulously packaged collectors’ box includes nearly every track that featured Duane Allman’s guitar that was originally released on the Capricorn Allman Brothers albums, several tracks by The Allman Joys, cross licensed from Capitol, many tracks that Duane played on for other artists, previously only compiled on hard-to-get anthologies, and over four previously unreleased bonus jams with contributions by Duane that have rarely been heard outside of collector circles. A sixth CD, titled “Duane’s Jukebox” features songs that Duane had on his home jukebox that he used to play along with. There is also a bonus DVD featuring a press kit and several rare pictures of the Allman Brothers in their prime, plus video reminiscences from contemporaries such as The Eagles, Aretha Franklin and Don McLean, and a guitar instruction video by brother Greg Allman.
