skydog-the-duane-allman-retrospectiveBack in 2013, Rounder Records released an phenomenal statement on the life and influence of Duane Allman in a 129-track, 7CD Limited Edition Box. The content of those CDs included an extraordinary collection of many areas that Duane Allman was involved in including session work and his own band. The Box included a 72-page book that was filled to bursting with photos, notes and essays, and a myriad of other collectible parts. There likely aren’t many left of the box set of Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective. You can read my wrote-up of the Box here (with track-list).

But what about vinyl?

Well, that vinyl box set of Skydog is about to make its appearance as a highly collectible Limited Edition 180g-weight 14LPBox that will have a run of only 1000 sets. Each set will be numbered. But what makes this set even more special is that Rounder has teamed with Pledge Music to create several bundle opportunities. Of three bundles, two are selling out fast. There are:
