February and March are looking like exciting times for fans of the Allman Brothers Band.
I originally posted all the details of some archival releases to come, but jumped the gun on that, publishing before details were finalized. I removed the information and apologize for any confusion caused.
This March will mark the band’s 45th anniversary and the 25th Anniversary of their Beacon runs, which have provided me with some of my greatest, most memorable musical moments. I was a dedicated fan long before I saw the band at the Beacon in 1992, but those shows, and the power of the Betts/Haynes/Woody frontline turned me into a full-on fanatical nut.
As most people checking in here know, my book One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band will be released on February 18.
Just a few weeks later, Galadrielle Allman’s Please Be with Me: A Song for My Father, Duane Allman will be released. This is also a must-read for hardcore fans. Galadrielle did a great job last year compiling and writing liner notes for Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective, which has also been reissued and is available once again after its initial 10,000 copy run sold out. All of these items and any other releases of interest to ABB fans will be available from my friends at Hittin’ The Note. I urge you to order from them and to keep checking in there for more exciting news to come.
