The Allman Brothers Band formed in 1969 with founding members Duane Allman, Jaimoe, Berry Oakley, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, and Gregg Allman. The band's very first informal jam together was a Muddy Waters song, 'Trouble No More', which shortly after became the very first song they officially demo'd together. It has remained unreleased until now, and kicks off this 50th anniversary collection. The box set was produced by Allman Brothers historians and aficionados Bill Levenson, John Lynskey and Kirk West. This 5-CD edition includes an 88-page booklet and is housed in a 12-panel softpack with a slipcase. Each CD is a thematic overview of the various stages of the band's recording and performance history. The box set also includes an 8,900+ word essay on the 50-year history of the band by John Lynskey, unreleased band photos along with newly-shot photos of memorabilia from the Big House Museum in Macon, GA and a recap of the 13 incarnations of the band line-up.
