Vinyl Picks: Helping Build Your Collection, Three Records At A Time
Filed under: Vinyl Picks | Posted by:

Vinyl Picks: a weekly column were we recommend three vinyl records that every When You Awake reader should own. Today, we’re going to highlight three albums that Duane Allman appeared on that weren’t Allman Brothers records. In the past, we’ve featured his cuts with Wilson Pickett, Delaney and Bonnie, Aretha Franklin and Eric Clapton. Now here’s some things you haven’t heard before on When You Awake! First up, we have Arthur Conley’s superb collection of R&B/Soul tunes, More Sweet Soul (Atco SD 33-276).  Allman plays either lead or rhythm guitar on 6 of the 12 tracks on this one. You can pick up a VG++ copy of this LP right now on eBay with a “Buy It Now” price of $9.50. Click here to check it out.

Next up is Boz Scagg’s self-titled album from 1969, Boz Scaggs (Atlantic SD-33-8239)  which features Duane Allman on five tracks, including the amazing slow blues jam “Loan Me A Dime.” On the mp3 below, you can hear Allman exchanging riffs with Larry Knechtel’s organ. You can pick up an unrated (but hopefully clean!) LP copy right now on eBay with a “Buy It Now” price of $10.00. Click here to check it out.

Lastly, we have a great solo album by Sam Samudio, of Sam the Sham & The Pharaohs fame, called Hard And Heavy (Atlantic SD 33-8271) from 1971. Allman plays on just 2 tracks, including the album’s closing number “Goin’ Upstairs,” which features Allman on the dobro. You can pick up a sealed copy of this one on eBay for $38.00.
