The Allman Brothers Band Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection 5CD Box Set

Career-Spanning Retrospective Assembles Half Century of Classics, Live Performances, Rarities and 7 Previously Unreleased Tracks including the Band's Very First Recording!

All Recordings Newly Mastered by Jason NeSmith at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, GA

When Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, Dickey Betts, Duane Allman, Jaimoe, and Gregg Allman finally coalesced in 1969 as The Allman Brothers Band, after stints in other bands and musical endeavors – some alone, some with each other – the group's very first informal jam together was the stomping Muddy Waters song, "Trouble No More." Almost immediately the six musicians knew they were on to something special. Shortly after, it also became the very first song they officially demoed together for their eponymous debut record, an album that would begin their legendary, unparalleled, and often times, turbulent journey as one of the best American rock bands to ever exist.

The Capricorn Years 1969 -1979, Part II collects together songs from the Allman's double album, Eat A Peach, made with tracks recorded in 1971 with Duane before he tragically died in a motorcycle accident. Released in February 1972, the cuts featured on the set include "Blue Sky," written and sung by Dickey; "Melissa," Gregg's tribute to his lost brother and "One Way Out," recorded live in June '71, on the closing night of the Fillmore East. "Hot 'Lanta" and "You Don't Love Me" from a live performance at New York's A&R Studios broadcast on WPLJ radio and "Ain't Wastin' Time No More," recorded at Puerto Rico's "Mar Y Sol Festival," in April 1972, showcase the band in a variety of live settings.

Songs from their No. 1 selling album, Brothers and Sisters, include Dickey's country-infused hit single, "Ramblin Man" and "Wasted Words," which were the last two songs to feature bassist Berry Oakley who also tragically died in a motorcycle accident at the same age as Duane, 24. Part II concludes with a previously unreleased outtake of "Early Morning Blues," a standard blues number that eventually morphed into "Jelly Jelly."

The final chapter, The Peach Years, 2000-2014, spans a variety of lineup changes, most notably the departure of Betts and the introduction of guitarist Derek Trucks, the nephew of Butch Trucks. The younger Trucks delivers an emotionally-charged solo alongside Dickey's recent replacement, Jimmy Herring, on the previously unreleased, somber-and raw, "Loan Me A Dime," recorded on August 26, 2000, the day bassist Allen Woody passed away. Gregg sounds especially emotional on the powerful performance.

Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection eloquently demonstrates how The Allman Brothers Band weathered extreme adversity to pursue its singular musical mission and single-handedly spawned the Southern rock genre while continually managing to reinvent themselves in the face of loss and tragedy and sell millions of records along the way. This new collection is a compelling summary of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer's timelessly brilliant and influential contributions to American music.
