A host of Allman-related catalogue projects are due out today to commemorate 45 years since the beloved rockers first came together. The band is self-releasing a fine find of a show recorded just weeks after the dates that were captured on At Fillmore East and months before Duane Allman's sudden passing. Elsewhere, Legacy is releasing some great stuff from the rejuvenated/revived lineup (featuring originals Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe alongside new guitarist Warren Haynes, bassist Allen Woody and percussionist Marc Quinones), including a double-disc set from one of the band's now-legendary runs at New York's Beacon Theatre (where they've played more than 200 shows over 25 years) and a reissue of the Live At Great Woods concert program on DVD. (Unlike previous reissues, this version is not intercut with interviews, allowing for maximum enjoyment of the music and visuals.)
A trio of manly various artists soundtracks, the first two starring Clint Eastwood (the latter of the two also directed by him) and the other starring and directed by Burt Reynolds. Music by Glen Campbell, Porter Wagoner, Marty Robbins, Chet Baker, Doc Severinsen and The Manhattan Transfer feature here; a full rundown by Joe is forthcoming!
