The Allman Brothers, who play a spring residency in New York every year, have released their 2009 concert series in a box set, the 2009 Beacon Box. The box features their 15 concerts played at the Beacon Theatre in 45 CDs. The box also includes a 60 page CD booklet with liner notes, set list, and exclusive photos, as well as souvenir backstage passes, and a 2-CD bonus show they played at Warren Haynes' 20th annual Christmas Jam in 2008 . All these things are packaged in a custom-made, serial numbered, hand-crafted wooden collector's box, screen-printed with the Beacon Theatre's marquee and other images for the price of $499.99.
To some, $500.00 is a lot of money to be spent at one time, but to devote fans it's a steal. Each of the 45 CDs can be purchased separately for $27.99 each, but if you purchase the 2009 Beacon Box you get the CDs at an approximated price of $10.00 a piece plus a bunch of free collectors items! If you are planning on buying the Allman Brothers' CDs, you are best off the purchase the box set, where the price of each CD is less than 50% of the regular resale price.
