ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There has always been a mystical side to the delta blues and guitar folklore. Over 100 years of guitar voodoo has been around forever. Visions of sharecroppers, dark swamps and slide guitar fill the air. As Cajun food smells like your on your way to see a witch doctor. From New Orleans , Memphis and to the heart of Mississippi where it all began. The unearthing of peoples souls spelled out in song and sang to the wind. As you seek out the crossroads, be careful what you ask for..cause you just might get it.
Guitar Voodoo is real.

Duane Allman November 20, 1946 – October 29, 1971
was the pioneer of southern electric blues slide guitar. The man who created and gave us The Allman Brothers. He left behind a legacy of music that has not only stood the test of time, but it has changed the face of music forever. Duane recorded the song Layla with Eric Clapton, making a masterpiece. Duane had also recorded the ground breaking ABB albums that helped lead into the whole southern rock movement. Which in turn created Lynyrd Skynyrd and many other legendary artist. Both the ABB and Lynyrd Skynyrd were of the same Capricorn Records label out of Macon Ga.

Duane Allman in particular had a unbelievable and undeniable approach to the sounds of the electric guitar. He was noted as being one of the worlds greatest guitarist. Using a primarily a Gibson 1957 Gold top guitar on Layla and many of his other recordings. The guitar had been believed to have been lost in the last 40 years. Till 2010.

Enter, Joe Davis." Les Paul's and Overalls". Hailing from Kannapolis (3), North Carolina.

While searching through guitar dealers on the web. Guitarist/vocalist Joe Davis, of The Joe Davis Band stumbled into a discovery which now has lead the Gold top to daylight and in the hands of some of the greatest artist on Earth.

Joe Davis met with Scot Lamar in the early part of 2010. After meeting and sharing their love for guitars, it was granted that Joe Davis was allowed to see this one of kind historic instrument. Not knowing in a month to follow, he would be recording a unbelievable album using Duane's guitar. The guitar at that point had not been played and used on regular basis. This was the first time it had been used in studio in many many years.

That was not only going to be the re recording of Layla, it would also feature Allen Woody's Gibson Firebird bass. Allen Woody, (Oct 3, 1955 to August 25, 2000) was the bassist for The Allman Brothers as well as the bassist for Warren Haynes and the Govt Mule.

Garry Harper, bass guitarist and a friend as well of Joe Davis got a phone call in the spring of 2010 and Joe Davis ask Garry to be on this recording. When Garry found out that Duane Allman's guitar was involved. He called his neighbor and dear friend Doug Woody, Allen Woody's father and ask him if he could borrow the bass. Mr. Woody obliged.
With Joe Davis on vocals and Duane Allman's Gold top, Garry Harper on Allen Woody's bass. A pro session drummer by the name of Patrick Daniel Trombly was called to action. Patrick a music veteran and pro drummer with lots of credits joined them in the studio to make a album, that sounds like no other.
The album was named The Skydog Woody Project, after Duane Allmans nickname "Skydog" and Allen Woody's last name.
In this day and age a album like this doesn't come around everyday. Its one of a kind.
The album is nothing but good songs, wrote with a lot of love from where the guitars came from. It wasn't wrote for money or fame. It was wrote knowing that music was the number one reason for doing it, the instruments were just made to work together sonically. The feelings were real and the people making The Skydog Woody Project come to life brought forth real music magic making this album. We hope you buy a copy and enjoy. We also hope you will tell your friends.

Hooray: Two dead guitar-heros are reanimated!!!
Important message to all fans of Allman Brothers, Gov´t Mule and other Southern-Jam-Rockers! Unbelievable album. These guys are playing the guitars of two dead mega-idols: The Duane Allman's 1957 Gibson and the Goldtop Les Paul & Allen Woody's (Allman/Gov´t Mule) Gibson Thunderbird bass. Great southern infected sound with a lot of soul. Just listen and THE feeling will get you. A must for lovers of the southern sounds. A breathtaking tribute to the good old seventies.
