Great Southern drawl electric Blues,
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Many years ago I bought Lynryd Skynards "One from the Road" double live album. It was alright but nothing too exceptional. When I bought this I was blown away by how much these studio recordings added to their overall sound. There's some nice variations between the gentler acoustic sounding stuff, and the twin or triplet guitar hero stuff, all augmented with some cracking keyboards.
They're well crafted, thoughtful songs, soaked in whiskey and deep south philosophy. Nice lyrics and you can actually hear the words, good tunes and some excellent give-it-large solos. If you're after a taste of Alabama then this fits the bill perfectly. P.S. It goes without saying but there's no racist crap here, although conscious of their history it's a celebration of integration, not segregation.
