Preview: Sky Dog: The Duane Allman Retrospective - Massive 7-CD Set

Artist: Duane Allman
Title: Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective
Release Date: March 5, 2013
Label: Rounder/Concord
Format(s): 7-CDs, DD

Duane Allman managed to assemble a legacy in his 24 short years that would make even the greatest musician jealous. Not only was he part of the Allman Brothers Band and Derek and the Dominoes, but he played in studio sessions for such greats as Aretha Franklin, Herbie Mann, Boz Scaggs, Ronnie Hawkins and Wilson Pickett.

Highlights from his life, so tragically cut short by a motorcycle accident in 1971, are being compiled on a seven-CD set by Rounder/Concord which will be released on March 5.

The closest to a complete history of the artist that we are likely to see, the set starts with Duane and his brother Gregg's mid-60's bands the Escorts, the Allman Joys and the Hour Glass before branching out to Duane's studio work at Memphis' Fame Studios, where he worked with Wilson Pickett, and Atlantic Records where he assembled a long resume with some of their top artists.

Much of the set is made up of his studio work with those artists. Of the 129-tracks, there are 18 from those three early bands, 21 from the Allman Brothers Band, seven from Delaney & Bonnie, four from Derek and the Dominoes, three solo cuts and the other 76 from his studio and guesting work.

Also in the package is liner notes from Scott Schinder and Galadrielle Allman.
