The limited edition “peach crate” remastered from the original tapes for reissue on 180-gram vinyl on July 22 by Mercury/UMe.

If you’ve been delaying a purchase of a new turntable, now’s the time to do so. Nine essential Allman Brothers Band albums, spanning 1969 to 1979, have been remastered from the original analog tapes for reissue on audiophile quality 180-gram vinyl, individually and as a limited edition 15-LP collection. The classic rock titles, arriving July 22 from Mercury/UMe, include: an expanded, 2-LP edition of The Allman Brothers Band; Idlewild South; 2-LP At Fillmore East; 2-LP Eat a Peach; Brothers and Sisters; Win, Lose or Draw; Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollar Gas; Enlightened Rogues; and 3-LP debut of Live At Ludlow Garage: 1970.

All titles are available now for preorder. The box set presents the nine albums on 15 LPs with exclusive extras (see below) in a Georgia-style solid wood peach crate. Available exclusively here, the peach crate collection is limited to 500 sets worldwide. On the same date, the nine albums will be available for download purchase in high definition digital audio (192kHz/24-bit and 96kHz/24-bit).

The albums have been remastered to 192kHz/24-bit audio and cut on copper plates using Abbey Road Mastering’s Direct Metal Mastering (DMM) lathe. All nine LP packages feature faithfully replicated original album artwork.

The Allman Brothers Band’s self-titled debut album is expanded to two LPs, featuring the original 1969 stereo mix and the 1973 Beginnings stereo mix. Live At Ludlow Garage: 1970 makes its debut in a triple-LP package, presenting the complete concert for the first time, including “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed,” originally released last year in Idlewild South’s 45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition.

In addition to the LPs, the limited edition peach crate collection boasts a bevy of exclusive collectable extras, including a half-stack amplifier-shaped 8GB USB stick with all nine albums as downloadable 44.1kHz/16-bit uncompressed AIFF audio files; four double-sided posters of key art or photos from the albums; magnets featuring each album’s cover art; guitar picks and buttons with key art or photos from each album; a custom deck of Allman Brothers Band playing cards; a trucker/snapback-style hat; a turntable mat and microfiber cleaning cloth. The peach crate, weighing in at approximately 26 pounds, measures 15.25” x 13.625” x 13.625” providing ample room for more vinyl LP storage.
