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 ...

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 ...

Special Purpose: Password

Read "Password" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Special Purpose's upbeat jam-happy debut wastes no time establishing a setting and a mood. The group kicks off by crossing some 1970s Jeff Beck with a little Allman Brothers Band, and the ingredients for a fun jazz-rock fusion stew are already there: dreamy organ, bubbling bass, guitar that plays off the others without needing to go ...

Eric Clapton: Life In 12 Bars: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Read "Life In 12 Bars: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" reviewed by Doug Collette

There's no scarcity of anthologies devoted to the span of Eric Clapton's work throughout his career, so there's a danger the soundtrack to Lili Fini Zanuck's documentary, Life in 12 Bars, will immediately seem redundant. Yet this companion piece to the film is perfectly complementary, deceptively discerning collection, even apart from the previously-unreleased items it contains. ...
