The Allman Brothers Band will release an eight-disc set comprising songs from their sold-out, three-night run at Atlanta's Fox Theatre in September 2004. At the time they were touring on what would turn out to be their final studio album, Hittin' the Note.
The Fox Box will feature a remastered audio mix and tighter song spacing than the versions that were released at the time and were made available during subsequent shows and through their internet mail order program. "Dreams" is the only song that is repeated from the 53 tracks in the box set. It appears three times, however a different guitar soloist – Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Jack Pearson – is featured in each instance.
The 2004 lineup included founding members Gregg Allman and drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, along with percussionist Marc Quinones, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks and bassist Oteil Burbridge. Guitarist Jack Pearson, who was in the band from 1997 to 1999, was a special guest. Other guests included Derek's Tedeschi Trucks Band bandmate and wife Susan Tedeschi, Butch's son Vaylor Trucks and keyboardist Rob Baracco.
The Fox Box will be released digitally today, with a physical release available on April 28th.
