If you've ever wondered why people regard the Les Paul Standard
as the greatest electric guitar ever made, the new Duane Allman retrospective, Skydog
, might help you understand what all the fuss is about. The Les Paul Standard was Duane's favorite guitar and Duane was everybody
's favorite guitarist in the late 60s and early 70s. Skydog
collects the best of Allman's studio and live performances.
The set features the entire range of Allman's work with his early bands (including the Allman Joys) and his studio sessions at Muscle Shoals Sound with Wilson Pickett, Otis Rush, Aretha Franklin, Boz Scaggs, and John Hammand. And of course, the live and studio highlights with the Allman Brothers still sound as fresh--and explosive--as ever. A 72 page book is included with rare photographs. And of course, the sound is superior to any previous reissues. Don't miss it.
