Allman Brothers Confirm New Live Releases

The Allman Brothers Band have announced that their own Allman Brothers Band Recording Company will release a number of live recordings from throughout the group’s storied history.

The Allman Brothers have a number of releases planned for 2014, including Boston Common 8/17/71, which was recorded 10 weeks before the death of co-founding guitarist Duane Allman. In addition, the band will also release the two-CD set Playing All Night: Live at The Beacon Theatre 1992 and the live DVD (filmed 1991), Live at Great Woods.

In related news, The Allman Brothers recently revealed that they will be returning to the Beacon Theatre for a 10-night residency this March. The Rolling Stone article that broke story also quoted Gregg Allman as suggesting that Oteil Burbridge had left the band. Burbridge quickly denied the rumor, which has since been debunked by Butch Trucks as well.

Possible typo on the Duane-era show? We already have an official Allman Bros release from 2007

Is Boston show same one out a few years ago, now re-released as last year’s archive titles were via new distro agreement?

Nice to see The ABB are releasing archival releases featuring Dickey Betts. Yes dc, I do believe The Boston Common show from 71 is a reissue.

Hope they re-release the full VHS version of Live at Great Woods 1991, and not the crappy truncated Japanese TV version, like the last DVD release.

Would be more excited to see some releases of more recent music. There were supposedly some recordings to be released from the 40th anniversary shows with guests such as Clapton. Any word on that?
