A new box set celebrating The Allman Brothers Band’s 50-year career will be released February 28th. Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection features 61 tracks including live performances and rarities in a deluxe 10-LP set, available on limited edition orange and red splatter vinyl or standard black vinyl. The release will also be available as a standard 5-CD set and on digital platforms.
A highlight of the album – one of the seven previously unreleased tracks featured on the release – is the band’s first-ever recording: the original 1969 demo of “Trouble No More”. The collection is bookended with a live performance of the same song from the Allman Brothers Band’s final career show at New York City’s Beacon Theatre in 2014.
Arranged chronologically and thematically and representing all 13 lineups the band had, the anniversary collection is grouped into five distinct eras representing the various stages of the band’s recording and performance history, divided by the group’s stints on the Capricorn, Arista and Epic labels, as well as the band’s own Peach imprint.

The deluxe vinyl box set of Trouble No More beautifully presents the Allman Brothers Band’s legacy across 10 LPs packaged in five gatefold jackets housed in a wood veneer wrapped slipcase with gold graphics, accompanied by a 56-page book. The vinyl set will also be released as a limited edition color vinyl collection via the online music retailer uDiscover with each LP pressed on orange and red splatter colored vinyl evoking the insides of a peach.
The 5-CD edition will be packaged in a 12-panel softpack with a visually distinctive slipcase and includes an 88-page booklet. Both physical editions feature an insightful nearly 9000-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 the band’s adopted hometown Macon, GA and a recap of the 13 incarnations of the band lineup.
The digital version of the album will mirror the 5-CD edition and be available for streaming and download.
Following the anniversary release, on March 10, The Brothers – Jaimoe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Marc Quinones, joined by Duane Trucks, Reese Wynans and special guest Chuck Leavell – will celebrate 50 years of the music of The Allman Brothers Band. This one-time concert event at New Yorks’ Madison Square Garden, will be a celebration of The Allman Brothers Band’s illustrious career. It notably marks the first time in more than five years that the legendary players will be together on stage to perform their iconic hits, and the first time since the passing of founding members Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks. Tickets for the event sold out almost immediately.
