The Allman Brothers Band: To Release Three Archival CDs And One DVD In December
The Allman Brothers Band will
release three live and archival CDs and one DVD on December 6th as
part of a new distribution deal that gives the band control of their
own music to an unprecedented level. “Finally, after 40 years, (the
band) are making records for their own label, without any
interference from non-musicians,” says Gregg Allman.
group has joined forces with Entertainment One Distribution to market
two signature record labels; Peach Records and the Allman Brothers
Band Recording Company. The agreement with Peach Records is for the
sales of its previous Sanctuary label releases, as well as new live
recordings of the current band. The deal with the Allman Brothers
Band Recording Company is for the release of archival recordings that
feature the late band members Duane Allman and Berry Oakley.
up, they will release the live ‘S.U.N.Y. At Stonybrook, NY’
(1971) show, which will include apparently the only soundboard
recording of ‘Blue Sky’ that features deceased founding members
Duane Allman and Berry Oakley.
this show was only available through mail-order and at the ABB live
shows. Also to be expected is the out-of-print 2003 studio album
‘Hittin’ The Note,’ a re-issue of the 2003 ‘Live At The
Beacon Theatre’ DVD, and the 2004 live album ‘One Way Out,’
which features classics and newer material.
group also plan a 2012 release of their 40th Anniversary show held at
the 2009 Beacon Theatre. After years of the band being protective
about their material, the group is excited about the possibilities of
this deal. Longtime manager Bert Holman says, “This new
relationship will allow us to get music into fans’ hands quicker
and more readily than ever and will give us the added marketing
support that these projects deserve.”
