Anyone know anything about this one? Is it just an official 31st of February tracks release?

Apparently they are cleaning out the early years vaults.

Holy makarel, canít believe this is being reissued - think it has the original Melissa, but itís mostly raw demos - was a 99 cent-er in the cutout bin back in the day


cmgst34 - 2/4/2020 at 04:07 PM

i actually have the original vinyl from way back in the day (actually, originally, my dad's vinyl)!

All of those album covers have been out before. The Hourglass Power of Love looks like the office release from 1968 to me. 31st of February material too. Buddy Kline produced most of the Allman Joys. All of those sessions were released after Brothers and Sisters became such a huge seller. They were trying to cash in on the success of the ABB by putting out these pre ABB sessions. Gregg didnt like it at all. Gregg didn't want that stuff rereleased and some tracks released for the first time. Gregg thought much of the pre ABB recordings he was on is garbage.

Gregg has said a few times that Butch continued to hold a slight grudge over the 31st of February as Butch felt that should have been the Allman Brothers. Duane and Gregg with David Brown on bass, Butch on drums , Scott Boyer on guitar, etc. But Gregg said his brother didnt take to it much and was going to quit even if Gregg had not gone back to LA to record for Liberty Records and finish off the Hourglass contract. So apparently Duane wasn't able to get behind the 31st of February. Duane didnt see it as what he was looking for. Liberty thought Gregg was the only one that had a chance. They weren't that impressed with Duane, Johnny Sandlin etc. Both albums were flops selling next to nothing and the 3rd album Duane was behind was rejected by Liberty and never released. Some tracks did make it on Duane Allman Anotholgy 1 and 2.

I have that too. There were some really nice cuts. I like the version of Melissa...a very pretty flowing version. Was redone years later similarly by Scott Boyer with the Decoys.

I always loved this album particularly May God Rest His Soul. I have the original vinyl. In 1974, my dad girlfriendís gave me this record and said she worked for the record company. I still have it.]

Liberties tastes are all over the map, they were big on Canned Heat back then or earlier, then kinda ignoring the Allmans. I don't get it.


WarEagleRK - 2/5/2020 at 03:22 PM

I wonder if the Hour Glass releases will have the bonus tracks that some of the CD releases had?


WaitinForRain - 2/6/2020 at 01:39 AM

I wish they would release some live Hourglass,
jams and shows from back in the day.

People say there are tapes......


JohnJohnston - 2/7/2020 at 12:19 AM

Johnny Sandlin had tapes. His wife was posting tracks on his Duck Tape Facebook page a while back as she was sorting his stuff after his passing. Hereís hoping for something new.


DOVETAIL - 2/9/2020 at 10:39 PM

Wonder if the curators (sic) of these packages will expend any tangible effort on them?


Uponthe2ndfloor - 2/10/2020 at 12:25 AM

Still have these on vinyl
