Nine Allman Brothers Band albums have been remastered and will be released by Mercury/Universal Music Enterprises in July 2016 as part of a reissued collection.
The collection includes an expanded 2LP edition of The Allman Brothers Band; Idlewild South; 2LP copies of At Fillmore East and Eat a Peach; Brothers and Sisters; Win, Lose or Draw; the two-LP Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollar Gas; Enlightened Rogues; and the 3LP Live at Ludlow Garage: 1970.
The records were remastered from the original analog tapes by Kevin Reeves to 192kHz/24-bit and cut by Abbey Road Studios onto copper plates using their Direct Metal Mastering lathe for superior fidelity. The 180-gram vinyl LPs include exact replication of each album's original artwork.
On the same release date, high definition digital audio (192kHz/24-bit and 96kHz/24-bit) downloads will be available for all of the albums.
Rarely is one new album release so influential that it changes the face of modern music, but that is exactly what The Allman Brothers Band's self-titled release did in 1969. Fusing rock, blues, jazz and even hints of the gospel tradition, they created southern rock. It became a sound that is emulated to this day. Oddly enough, there were only 50,000 copies of the original album sold, but musicians and critics took note. The biggest attention grabber was Gregg Allman's "Whipping Post." In spite of its slow start, The Allman Brothers Band did break into the Billboard 200 at No. 188.
