Welcome to the epicenter of Southern rock-Skynyrd live at Atlanta's Fox Theater two days after the American Bicentennial! This deluxe edition adds 10 more performances to the original live album's 14 and vastly improves the sound of the original release with a from-scratch remastering job. Includes Tuesday's Gone; Saturday Night Special; Sweet Home Alabama; Free Bird; T for Texas (Blue Yodel No. 1); Crossroads; Call Me the Breeze , and more.
Dismissed by some as the redneck Led Zeppelin, yet beloved by a faithful and grassroots following for just that reason, Lynyrd Skynyrd sailed above it all--even the dark tragedy that befell them less than a year after this landmark live set was recorded in Atlanta. A triple-platinum perennial in its classic-rock heyday, this 25th anniversary edition has been digitally restored and authentically remixed on vintage '70s equipment to great effect. The band's performances have also been resequenced to their original running order to accurately recreate the Skynyrd '70s live experience.
Even Allen Collins's later-overdubbed intro to their ubiquitous epic "Free Bird" has been restored with the original. Cameron Crowe's original notes are also here, long before Almost Famous, and he insightfully puts the album in its proper historical perspective. But the real premium here is the almost full disc of bonus cuts, including previously unreleased versions of "Simple Man," "Gimme Back My Bullets," "Workin' for MCA," "I Ain't the One," "Searching," and other alternate versions recorded during the Atlanta stand ("Gimme Three Steps," "Call Me the Breeze," "Sweet Home Alabama," "Crossroads," "Free Bird"), but until now scattered elsewhere in the Skynyrd catalog. --Jerry McCulley

If you can put all the retreaded "greatest hits" releases in the back of you mind, you will never grow tired of this album. My only minor beef is the mixing of the guitars. Rossington's guitar is front and center; considerably louder in the mix than Collins (left channel) & Gaines (right channel). There are times when Gaines' guitar is barely audible. It is not until "T For Texas" we can really here Gaines with any volume.
I remember back in the 70's a friend of mine saying the Eagles were the best American band ever. Ha...Skynyrd is the Eagles on Jack Daniels & steroids....no comparison. Add to cart now, you won't regret it!
First, the sound quality: Normally, digital technology reveals analogs imperfections. The liner notes claim the 2" master was baked and fed through a vintage analog mixer. Whatever they did, this is one of the warmest, richly textured and best mixed live albums ever. It even makes my stock Tahoe stereo sound like a Levinson.
Next, Ronnie my buddie....on the original albums, due to time, they cut short many of the 20-40 second intros he does. But these CDs have it all. Hearing these for the first time, after knowing the music so well, added much to the enjoyment.
Lastly, about the band overall. In today's climate of over marketed, hyped-up cheezy artist, I cannot believe how many quality tunes this band put out in 4 albums and under 4 years. I can't think of another group that was as prolific.
Run, don't walk to get these CDs.
Regardless of whether think the live recordings provide better verions of the songs, or if you think the studio recordings sound better, this is still essential. Even for those who prefer the more polished studio sounds, there's still simply a whole different feel in hearing the band when it has a live audience in front of it. Skynyrd interacts well with its very enthusiastic audience, Ronnie in particular obviously relishing the comaradarie between himself and his fans. This chemistry can be felt by the listener of this record, even nearly 30 years after it was recorded. The songs themselves are played with energy and intensity, and many songs such as "Gimme Back My Bullets," "Searchin'" and even "Simple Man" sound better live than the studio releases.
The Deluxe Edetion, even though I never got to hear the original, is fantastic. The sounds is crystal clear, but still retains the warmth of vintage 70s equipment. The mix is very good, bringing ou the instruments well at all the right times (I will concede the Billy Powell's piano is a touch quiet in "Workin' For MCA," but the rest is fine).Read more ›

Lynyrd Skynyrd were like an American Rolling Stones. They rocked, rolled, boogied and played some good ole' honk. This is definately one of the best live albums of all time. Read morePublished on June 2 2004 by Glenn Nippert
