THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND - The Fox Box (2017)
FOX BOX is an eight disc set of The Allman Brothers performing three-nights September 24th, 25th and 26th, 2004 at the Fox Theatre. The complete package contains 54 performances of 52 songs from the historic Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA. It has never before been available digitally.
When the Allman Brothers Band hit Atlanta's Fox Theatre for a sold-out three-night run in 2004, they were buoyed by the critical and fan reception of what would be their final studio album, Hittin' The Note. The band had been touring heavily and were ready to settle down in their beloved Atlanta for three special 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.
The 8-CD set features a remastered audio mix as well as tightening up of the song spacing. And 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.
