On July 22nd, Mercury Records will reissue nine classic albums from The Allman Brothers Band on 180-gram vinyl LPs. All but one of the albums were originally issued from 1969 to 1979, and released on Macon-based Capricorn Records.
The albums include: the group’s self-titled 1969 debut; Idlewild South (1970); At Fillmore East (1971); Eat a Peach (1972); Brothers & Sisters (1973); Win, Lose or Draw (1975); Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollar Gas (1976); Enlightened Rogues (1979) and Live at Ludlow Garage, recorded at the Cincinnati concert venue in 1970 and originally released by Polydor Records in 1990. That latter album will be making its vinyl debut.
The original recordings have been remastered, and the band and label have attempted to replicate the original album artwork as faithfully as possible. Additionally, all nine albums (on 15 LPs), will be available in a limited edition set housed in a specially made wooden crate. Only 500 of these will be available.
