Allman Brothers Band Set To Release Two Vintage Recordings

Posted by lonnie On January - 24 - 2013 0 Comment

The music industry can only take so many pop stars before self-destructing. Sorry Taylor Swift, you may be considered a “country” artist, but you are only making the pop world overinflate. Admittedly a bit bitter today, I tend to take out my anger on the copycats on the iTunes charts. So, I’ll stick to listening to music from decades past.

Sparing Ms. Swift from further defamation, the Allman Brothers Band recently announced the release of two high-quality vintage recordings on February 12th. The legendary blues/southern rock band historically recorded numerous live shows and is selectively releasing their personal choices through the group’s label, Allman Brothers Band Recording Company, which Entertainment One Music will distribute.

Celebrating the Allman Brothers Band stamp on the music world, the upcoming release will include two unique shows. The 2/11/72 concert in their Macon, GA hometown is the outfit’s first show after the death of founding guitarist, Duane Allman, and features the group as a five-piece with the original members. The 5/1/73 performance at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY includes keyboardist, Chuck Leavell, who would later go on to the Rolling Stones, and bassist, Lamar Williams, who replaced founding bassist, Berry Oakley. The show also consisted of four songs that did not appear on any of their previous live or archival releases, “Come & Go Blues”, “Wasted Words”, “Jessica” and “Ramblin’ Man”.

Head on over to the Allman Brothers Band’s official site to check out the full tracklisting for the vintage recordings.

Thank you, Allman Brothers Band, for instilling hope within my mind that the music industry will one day wake up and realize pop music isn’t the way of the future.
