The Allman Brothers Band are celebrating their 50th anniversary with the release today of a massive boxed set.

Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection contains 61 tracks spread over five-CDs or 10-vinyl discs.

Presented in chronological order, and representing all 13 lineups of the band, it starts with their very first recording, a demo of the Muddy Waters‘ song “Trouble No More,” recorded in 1969, as well as studio recordings, live performances, rarities and seven unreleased tracks.

Appropriately enough it also ends with a live version of “Trouble No More” from their last show at New York’s Beacon Theater in 2014.

Allman Brothers guitarist Warren Haynes on the goal of the new Allman Brothers Band box set, Trouble No More, which is out today (Friday).

“Just to honor the legacy and showcase not just all the different eras or line-ups, but kind of the strength that remained throughout the whole thing. It was a lot to choose from, but I think we did a good job of putting it all together.”

The set is broken down as follows:

  • The Capricorn Years 1969 – 1979 Part I
  • The Capricorn Years 1969 – 1979 Part II
  • The Capricorn Years 1969 – 1979 Part III
  • The Arista Years 1980 – 1981
  • The Epic Years 1990 – 2000
  • The Peach Years 2000 – 2014

Haynes, along with Allman Brothers founding drummer Jaimoe, will come together with other members of the band and special guests for a 50th anniversary show at New York’s Madison Square Garden on March 10th.
