Gregg & Duane Allman Vinyl Bundle
LP 
Price: $98.79

Product Notes

In the Gregg & Duane Allman Vinyl Bundle you get four pieces of rare vinyl history that traces back the recordings of Gregg Allman and Duane Allman before they formed the legendary Allman Brothers Band.

HOUR GLASS

Background: The first album by The Hour Glass is a mixed bag; it features the talents of Duane and Gregg Allman as well as three other members who went on to work as session musicians at the famed Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama. That would seem to insure greatness, but while they were all talented musicians, their record label, Liberty Records, didn’t really know what to do with them.

The label rejected all of the group’s self-written material and had them record material from songwriters the label had under contract instead. It’s not a bad album, and is actually a pretty good example of soul-infused, late 1960s pop, but it’s an album that doesn’t sound a whole lot like the Allman Brothers Band.

POWER OF LOVE

Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition. Power of Love is the second studio album by Hour Glass, issued in March 1968 on Liberty Records, the final by the group with the namesakes of The Allman Brothers Band. After the failure of their first album, Liberty Records allowed a greater independence for the group, who had been virtually shut out of the decision making for their first album by the label and producer Dallas Smith. With Smith behind the boards, Gregg Allman was still the focus. The younger Allman, who had seen only one of his compositions on the previous album, contributed seven of the twelve tracks. The remainder were two from Marlon Greene and Eddie Hinton and one each from the teams of Spooner Oldham and Dan Penn, John Berry and Don Covay, and John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

EARLY ALLMAN (FEATURING DUANE AND GREGG ALLMAN)

Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition. The psychedelic act Allman Joys, which evolved from their prior outfit the Escorts, featured Duane on lead guitar and Gregg on organ and lead vocals. The Early Allman compilation, which collects the band's session work from August 1966, has been out of print since it's initial release in 1973.

DUANE & GREGG ALLMAN

Duane & Greg Allman is an album credited to Duane and Gregg Allman, originally released by Bold Records in May 1972. The release is essentially an album-length demo recording of the '31st of February', a Tallahassee-based folk rock band featuring drummer Butch Trucks, bassist David Brown, and guitarist Scott Boyer. The '31st of February' formed in 1965 and released their first, self-titled album in 1968. This second recording, according to Trucks, was intended to be their second album. It features Duane Allman on guitar and Gregg Allman on vocals. The two had been performing with the 31st of February for several months.

It was recorded at TK Studios in the Miami suburb of Hialeah, Florida in September 1968. Steve Alaimo engineered the sessions and later claimed producer's credit. The album is notable for the first recording of "Melissa", which was later re-recorded with the Allman Brothers Band.
