Allman Brothers Band: 50th Anniversary ‘Trouble No More’ Retrospective Set Coming (10-LP, 5-CD) in February

0

2020 is all about commemorating five decades of the Allman Brothers Band — and on Feb. 28, Island Mercury/UMe will release Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection, a robust assortment of material from the legendary band that ought to serve as the perfect tribute for the milestone.

The collection comes weeks before a very special concert taking place in New York on March 10 called The Brothers: Celebrating 50 Years of the Allman Brothers Band. 

Announced on Tuesday, the Trouble No More retrospective set is seriously massive … and you can preview it below with an unboxing video set to the original 1969 demo of “Trouble No More,” which opens the set:

Here are more details about the set, which will be available as a 10-LP collection or a 5-CD set:

The deluxe vinyl box set of Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection beautifully presents the Allman Brothers Band’s legacy across 10 LPs packaged in five gatefold jackets housed in a wood veneer wrapped slipcase with gold graphics, accompanied by a 56-page book. The vinyl set will also be released as a limited edition color vinyl collection via the online music retailer uDiscover with each LP pressed on orange and red splatter colored vinyl evoking the insides of a peach. The 5CD edition will be packaged in a 12-panel softpack with a visually distinctive slipcase and includes an 88-page booklet. Both physical editions feature an insightful nearly 9000 word essay on the 50-year history of the band by John Lynskey, unreleased band photos along with newly shot photos of memorabilia from the Big House Museum in the band’s adopted hometown Macon, GA and a recap of the 13 incarnations of the band lineup. The digital version of the album will mirror the 5CD edition and be available for streaming and download, including Apple Digital Master. All recordings have been newly mastered by Jason NeSmith at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, Ga. and sound better than ever.

Arranged chronologically and thematically and representing all 13 lineups the band had, Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection is grouped into five distinct eras representing the various stages of the band’s recording and performance history, divided by the group’s stints on the Capricorn, Arista and Epic labels, as well as the band’s own Peach imprint. Starting with The Capricorn Years 1969 – 1979 Part I, the collection kicks off at the beginning of the Allman Brothers Band’s story with their first-ever recording, the previously unreleased 1969 demo version of “Trouble No More,” and includes highlights from their self-titled debut like the swaggering one-two punch of “Don’t Want You No More” and “It’s Not My Cross To Bear,” the musical maelstrom “Whipping Post;” standouts from their second album, Idlewild South, such as the classic “Midnight Rider;” Dickey’s first songwriting effort for the band, “Revival;” and “Don’t Keep Me Wondering,” with Duane’s slide guitar work center stage. The original lineup’s legacy album, the legendary live At Filmore East, recorded in March 1971 at promoter Bill Graham’s East Village theatre, is represented here with the blues-rock shuffle of “Statesboro Blues,” a sultry take on “Stormy Monday” and the dazzling 13-minute instrumental odyssey, “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed,” where every member is in perfect harmony. As Lynskey writes in the comprehensive liners, “There is no question, however, that The Allman Brothers Band was at their best up on a stage, playing live music for an audience. The group played with unbridled energy, and without constraints. While their set list did not vary all that much from night to night in the early days, the band’s desire to explore, create and improvise guaranteed that each show would be a different listening experience… Their marathon concerts became the stuff of legend, and that spirit was captured on At Fillmore East, the live set by which all others are measured.”
