The Allman Brothers Band formed in 1969 with founding members Duane Allman, Jaimoe, Berry Oakley, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, and Gregg Allman. The band’s very first informal jam together was a Muddy Waters song “Trouble No More” which shortly after became the very first song they officially demo’d together, has remained unreleased until now and starts off this 50th anniversary collection. ABB essentially are the fathers of the southern rock sound; that acts like Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top and The Marshal Tucker Band soon became widely known for; along with the jam band scene due to their larger than life instrumental jams. After their first two albums, The Allman Brothers Band and Idlewild South, the band recorded and released their first live double album At Fillmore East which has become the live album that all other live albums are measured. Just four days after At Fillmore East was certified gold, Duane Allman suffered a motorcycle accident and died. The band was determined to carry on, but a year later, their next band leader Berry Oakley suffered the same fate as Duane not three blocks from the location of Duane’s accident. The band’s members evolved from these unfortunate moments in their history through thirteen incarnations and in 2014 the band decided to retire from touring officially. The very last song performed by The Allman Brothers Band at the Beacon Theatre was the very first song they ever jammed together “Trouble No More” which this performance beautifully closes our 61-song boxset. The boxset was produced by Allman Brothers historians and aficionados Bill Levenson, John Lynskey and Kirk West. The 10-LP packaging consists of a wood veneer wrapped slipcase with gold graphics, 5 gatefold jackets and a 56-page book. The 5-CD edition includes a 88-page booklet and is housed in a 12-panel softpack with a slipcase. Each CD is a thematic overview of the various stages of the band’s recording and performance history as noted in the below track listing. Both the 10-LP & 5-CD editions feature an 8,900+ word essay on the 50-year history of the band by John Lynskey, unreleased band photos along with newly shot photos of memorabilia from the Big House Museum in Macon, GA and a recap of the 13 incarnations of the band line-up.

The Rock: The History of Alcatraz Island and Am...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Alcatraz Island has been home to a lighthouse, a military fort, a national park, and gatherings of Native American protesters, but say the name Alcatraz to any American and they will immediately associate it with prison. This is somewhat ironic since the island, just a mile and a half away from San Francisco in the Bay, was a federal prison for only three decades, but in that time, "The Rock" became notorious for being the most secure prison in the nation. In that time, 3 dozen prisoners tried to escape, which led to the "Battle of Alcatraz" and some of the most complex plots ever made to bust out, but nobody ever successfully escaped The Rock, and several died trying. As one commenter poignantly put it, "You break the rules, you go to prison. You break the prison rules, you go to Alcatraz Prison." Another writer echoed this sentiment, calling Alcatraz "the great garbage can of San Francisco Bay, into which every federal prison dumped its most rotten apples." In a sense, it was fitting that Alcatraz became the most famous prison in American history, because hundreds of years before the penitentiary was located there, it was being used by Native Americans to banish members. Thanks to the strong currents near it and the cold, inhospitable terrain of the small island, Native Americans only used it sparingly, and unruly members were often sent there as punishment. 1.

Although pelicans no longer call the island home, a French explorer in the early 19th century confirmed the island was “covered with a countless number of these birds. A gun fired over the feathered legions caused them to fly up in a great cloud and with a noise like a hurricane".Like the Native Americans, the Spanish 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim D Johnston.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER • NAMED ONE OF TIME'S TEN BEST NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE DECADE "Inspiring . . . extraordinary . . . [Katherine Boo] shows us how people in the most desperate circumstances can find the resilience to hang on to their humanity. Just as important, she makes us care."-People NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times • The Washington Post • O: The Oprah Magazine • USA Today • New York • The Miami Herald • San Francisco Chronicle • Newsday In this brilliant, breathtaking book by Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Boo, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. As India starts to prosper, the residents of Annawadi are electric with hope. Abdul, an enterprising teenager, sees "a fortune beyond counting" in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Meanwhile Asha, a woman of formidable ambition, has identified a shadier route to the middle class. With a little luck, her beautiful daughter, Annawadi's "most-everything girl," might become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest children, like the young thief Kalu, feel themselves inching closer to their dreams. But then Abdul is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; terror and global recession rock the city; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power, and economic envy turn brutal. With intelligence, humor, and deep insight into what connects people to one another in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, based on years of uncompromising reporting, carries the reader headlong into one of the twenty-first century's hidden worlds-and into the hearts of families impossible to forget.
