Seven-Disc Duane Allman Box Set, ‘Skydog,’ Expected in March

January 28th, 2013

On March 5, Rounder Records will release Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective, a deluxe, seven-disc box set.

The set, which will sell for $139.98, contains Allman’s best-known and most commercially successful recordings with the Allman Brothers Band and Derek and the Dominos, plus session work with Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Boz Scaggs, Clarence Carter, King Curtis, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, Ronnie Hawkins, Otis Rush, Laura Nyro, Lulu, the Sweet Inspirations, Laura Lee, Spencer Wiggins, Arthur Conley, Willie Walker, the Lovelles, the Soul Survivors, Johnny Jenkins, John Hammond, Doris Duke, Eric Quincy Tate, Herbie Mann and others.

Skydog was produced by Galadrielle Allman (Duane’s daughter) and two-time Grammy-winning producer Bill Levenson. Rounder Records’ Scott Billington served as executive producer. Scott Schinder contributed comprehensive historical liner notes, complemented by additional notes by Galadrielle Allman.

In her recollection of her father, who died when she was a young child, Galadrielle writes, “I am very lucky that my father is Duane Allman, an artist who left behind a wealth of incredible music . . . Working on this retrospective, I have gotten closer than I ever have been to understanding my father’s development as a musician and a man.”

Over seven discs, Skydog tells the Duane Allman story with rare, never-before-heard gems alongside hits.

“I hope the celebration of Duane’s life inspires you to live fearlessly and enjoy life,” Galadrielle concludes. “I know that would have made him proud.”
