The Allman Brothers Band has a new distribution deal that gives them an unprecedented level of control of their music. Gregg Allman said in a press release “Finally, after 40 years, (the band) are making records for their own label, without any interference from non-musicians.”
Their first release on December 6th will be an archival live performance from right here on Long Island. A 1971 show from ‘S.U.N.Y. At Stonybrook, NY’ that features deceased founding members Duane Allman and Berry Oakley.
Also on the way, the out-of-print 2003 studio album ‘Hittin’ The Note,’ a re-issue of the 2003 ‘Live At The Beacon Theatre’ DVD, and the 2004 live album ‘One Way Out.’
Also planned for release in 2012 the band’s 2009 40th Anniversary Beacon Theater show which featured among others, special guest Eric Clapton.
