The Allman Brothers Band / Idlewild South 4-disc super deluxe


This November, Universal Music are to reissue the Allman Brothers Band‘s second album, Idlewild South, across a number of formats including a 3CD+Blu-ray audio set that will include a 5.1 surround sound mix of the 1970 album.

As well as the hi-res 5.1 and stereo mixes, the blu-ray will include the album plus four bonus tracks: Statesboro Blues (Session Outtake), In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed (Alternate Take), One More Ride (Session Outtake) and Midnight Rider (Alternate Mix).

It’s not known yet what content will be across the three CDs in the four-disc super deluxe, or how this edition will be presented, but Amazon UK are currently showing what looks to be an extremely competitive price of £29 so putting in a ‘banker’ pre-order might not be a bad idea. Once the VAT is deducted, US fans will be paying $36 plus shipping.

There will also be a two-disc deluxe edition and a single disc remaster and although not confirmed a vinyl version is surely reasonably likely.

Idlewild South is scheduled to be reissued on 4 December 2015.
