Duane Allman s acclaimed box set, Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective, was a critical and commercial success. This encore edition gives the Duane Allman fan access to the most important ingredient of the collection the full breadth and depth of his music and work, in an elegant new presentation. The package includes the original 72-page booklet, with essays by Scott Schinder and Galadrielle Allman, and many rare photographs. Duane Allman was one of the defining musicians of the rock era, rated second only to Jimi Hendrix in Rolling Stone's list of 100 greatest guitarists. A founding member, with his brother Gregg, of the Allman Brothers Band, Duane was also active as a session musician, and as a member of the all-star Derek & the Dominos. The encore edition of the critically acclaimed 7-CD set was produced by Duane's daughter Galadrielle Allman and esteemed reissue producer Bill Levenson. All 129 tracks from the original edition are included; featuring several performances available only in the Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective collection, many classic Allman Brothers songs, and a collector's cache of rare singles and long out-of-print album tracks. The songs range from his early recordings (with Gregg) in bands such as The Escorts, Allman Joys and Hour Glass; to his studio work with Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Boz Scaggs and Delaney & Bonnie; to a live jam session with the Grateful Dead.
