Product Description

Now this is how to present a rounded portrait of Duane Allman: his key solo and Allman Brothers cuts plus his session work as guitarist-for-hire. Layla; Statesboro Blues; Dreams; Little Martha; Goin' Down Slow , and Stand Back join Hey Jude Wilson Pickett; Games People Play King Curtis; Loan Me a Dime Boz Scaggs; The Weight Aretha Franklin; The Road of Love Clarence Carter, and more!

While his recording career only lasted a little more than six years ('66-'71), Duane Allman's playing was heard not only with the Allman Brothers Band, but on a variety of important records by other artists as well. Hence this posthumous 1972 double-album collection, which--besides five Allman Brothers tracks--includes many memorable solos by the distinctive slide guitarist from sessions at the fabled Fame and Muscle Shoals studios. Highlights include soul versions of "Hey Jude" (Wilson Pickett), "The Weight" (Aretha Franklin), and "Games People Play" (King Curtis), as well as the time-stopping "Somebody Loan Me a Dime" (Boz Scaggs) and Derek and the Dominoes' classic, "Layla." --Billy Altman

This Anthology is a great collection representing Duane's work & his legacy, especially outside of the ABB. The real keepers on this set are his session work with Muscle Shoals, when he worked with such artists as Aretha, Wilson Pickett, & etc. A fabulous bonus is cuts from his aborted solo album, which are extremely interesting. His work as a sideman is phenomenol, as he adds his own stamp to the cuts while never overwhelming the actual artist being recorded. It is also astounding on how GOOD he got after leaving Muscle Shoals & forming his own band. Within a 2-3 year span, he became one of the biggest talents to emerge in rock, all to end at his premature death.
This isn't a perfect "Anthology" for Duane. To begin with, this album has too many ABB cuts from their first three albums, as well as Layla from his work with the Dominos. Overlapping overkill. Chances are, if one was to pick this album up in the first place, more than likely, they would already own those albums.
A second knock on this set is, it is EXTREMELY dated. The powers to be haven't remastered a single track, & there are supposedly a wealth of unhidden treasures still unreleased commercially that was done by Duane. In the days of vinyl, this Anthology was quite a tribute to his legacy.... but now, they need to update it. Very badly.
In the mean time, this 2 disc set is still worthwhile until Duane finally gets the royal treatment with a box set. A monster talent, the heart & soul of the ABB, slide master, & much more. He pushed players such as Betts & Clapton to dig in a little deeper. A real inspiration.
Remember Duane Allman.

Universal Japan has issued new '08 remasters of both Anthology and Anthology II, both in LP-replica mini-sleeves of the original album covers, and both complete with replicas of the original booklets.

It's great to finally have improved-audio versions of both of these fabulous compilations, but what just knocked my socks off was the remastered "Loan Me A Dime". This track now sounds better than any other CD ever released, including the '97 Scaggs Anthology. I've always loved that song, and now it sounds like you're standing in the room when they recorded it; you won't believe the increased clarity of the drums, or the awesome bass-drum kick on this version.

The price of both of these sets will probably take your breath away, but you can find them direct from Tokyo retailers, or eBay, for nearly half the price Amazon is charging for them. Just don't delay in buying them, as all mini-sleeves are limited edition.


Have you ever lamented the loss of one of the 20th Century's great art forms, the 12" vinyl LP jacket? Then "mini-LP-sleeve" CD's may be for you.

Mini-sleeve CDs are manufactured in Japan under license. The disc is packaged inside a 135MM X 135MM cardboard precision-miniature replica of the original classic vinyl-LP album. Also, anything contained in the original LP, such as gatefolds, booklets, lyric sheets, posters, printed LP sleeves, stickers, embosses, special LP cover paper/inks/textures and/or die cuts, are precisely replicated and included.

Duane Allman was one of the great guitar legends of the 1970s. Tragically he died just before achieving superstardom, and his legend has been somewhat obscured by history. But he has never been forgotten by musicians who worked with him and those who really care about great American music.
He was one of the greatest white blues guitarists of all time--Eric Clapton said Duane was a better guitarist than himself, and Duane taught Eric how to play slide guitar--but unfortunately, there are only two albums where Duane's talent ever showed its full potential: Derek and the Dominoes' LAYLA AND OTHER ASSORTED LOVE SONGS (where he often outplayed Clapton himself) and the Allman Brothers Band's AT FILLMORE EAST. By the time those great albums were released, he was already dead of a motorcycle accident.
Fortunately, Duane cut his chops before these immortal recordings by working as a session player for various artists at the fabled Mussel Shoals recording studios. This collection gives us highlights of some of his best work in that era, along with a few choice Allman Brothers cuts.
The collection is for real guitar music fans--he played on so many records with so many artists that the songs tend to swing wildly from style to style. And unfortunately, the sound quality on these recordings is full of hiss and could be cleaned up with modern remastering techniques. Alas, that has yet to be done; this collection is basically a quick remaster of a previous release on vinyl, and doesn't even use up all the available space on CD (which it easily could). More could also be done to group the songs more effectively by style. For these reasons this collection rates only four stars; for musicianship, it deserves 5 stars at least!
