Allman Brothers Band: Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection

Read "Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection" reviewed by Doug Collette


The gold-embossed lettering on the front and back cover of the roughly 5" by 7" slipcase enclosing the Allman Brothers Band's box set Trouble No More belies its otherwise generic art work. Yet the graphic design isn't all that gives the lie to an otherwise positive first impression gleaned from 50th Anniversary Collection. A glance at the sixty-one tune track-listing plus a cursory perusal of Kirk West's stellar photos inside the eighty-eight page booklet are also somewhat deceiving: while this ...

Younger Brothers: The Allman Joys, Hourglass, Duane & Gregg

Read "Younger Brothers: The Allman Joys, Hourglass, Duane & Gregg" reviewed by Doug Collette


In somewhat belated recognition and celebration of the fifty year anniversary of the formation of the Allman Brothers Band in March of 1969, something of a beehive of activity arose during the first quarter of 2020. Not coincidentally, most of it circles around what used to be one of, if not the most, significant junctures of any given year for the latter-day ABB, that is, the perennial runs of concerts at New York City's Beacon Theater. In lieu of such ...

The Allman Brothers Band: Classic Memorabilia 1969-1976

Read "The Allman Brothers Band: Classic Memorabilia 1969-1976" reviewed by Doug Collette


The Allman Brothers Band: Classic Memorabilia 1969-1976 Willie Perkins & Jack Weston 150 Pages ISBN: 088146547X Mercer University Press 2015 Galadrielle Allman, the daughter of the late founder of The Allman Brothers Band Duane “Skydog' Allman, wrote the best book on the seminal Southern Rock band, Please Be With Me: A Song for My Father, Duane Allman (Spiegel & Grau, 2014), so it only stands to reason she would be ideal to offer ...

A Modern Day Appreciation of the Allman Brothers Band

Read "A Modern Day Appreciation of the Allman Brothers Band" reviewed by Doug Collette


Any music lover who's come to relish the Allman Brothers Band, particularly in the last ten to fifteen years, must be feeling more than a little melancholy as 2015 evolves. And if following the iconic Southern rock band has become a cyclical rite of passage all its own, that poignant sensation is probably not going to wane as the seasons come and go: in years (not so recently) past, before the glow of a new year by the calendar had ...

One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band (paperback edition) Alan Paul 496 Pages ISBN: #9781250040503 St. Martin's Press 2015 Though Alan Paul may not have intended it as such, his truncated addition to the paperback edition of One Way Out acts as an implicit explanation of why the Allman Brothers' final (sic) performance in October of 2014 was more of an anti-climax rather than a triumphant close to their ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
