In 1971, Duane Allman — one of the greatest slide guitarists of all time — died at age 24. His daughter, Galadrielle Allman, was only 2 at the time. Here, she joins World Cafe to present music from the lovingly curated Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective.
Selections from the new box set range from recordings of Duane Allman's first high-school band, The Escorts, to his numerous stints as a sideman at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, as he helped with records by Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin and more.
