Allman Bros. Band to Release 8-CD ‘Fox Box’

Share This:

When the Allman Brothers Band hit Atlanta’s Fox Theatre for a sold-out three-night run in 2004, they were coming off what would turn out to be their final studio album, Hittin’ The Note. The band had been touring heavily and was ready to settle down in Atlanta for three nights. The shows were released by the then-nascent “Instant Live” program, contemporaneous recordings sold at shows and internet mail order only afterwards without much packaging or fanfare.

Now, the band will release—digitally March 24 and physically on April 28—via RED Distribution, all three shows as The Fox Box. The eight-CD set features a remastered audio mix as well as tightening up of the song spacing. And, according to a press reease, these three September 2004 shows have “a unique feature that ABB fans will appreciate: of the 53 songs performed, there is only one repeat, the sprawling ‘Dreams,’ played (three times), and each with a different voicing by the guitar soloist: Derek Trucks, Warren haynes and Jack Pearson.

The Allman Brothers Band in 2004 featured founding members Gregg Allaman, (keyboards, vocals) and drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, along with longtime percussionist Marc Quinones, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks and bassist Oteil Burbridge. Guitarist Parson, who was in the band from 1997-99, was a special guest. Other guests include Derek’s bandmate/wife Susan Tedeschi, guitarist Vaylor Trucks (Butch’s son, who was captured on the rear cover of Brothers & Sisters as a child) and keyboardist Rob Baracco (Phil Lesh Quintet/Other Ones).
