Product Description

Product Description

• Steve Gaines was originally one of lead guitarists of legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. Steve featured heavily on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s material and played and wrote on all of their best selling albums.

• Following the fatal plane crash which took most of the bands lives, Skynyrd regrouped a few years later. Steve however, left his own legacy in the form of two solo albums.

• ‘One in the Sun’ is probably his most famous solo album and it has not been available for many years.

• This album is a must for all Skynyrd/Southern rock fans everywhere and it will certainly follow previous Lemon successes of a similar ilk, such as 38 Special and The Rossington Band.

• The package contains all original sleeve artwork plus bonus sleevenotes.

To all Lynyrd Skynyrd fans still out there, and still rockin' in that good old down home way, this is a very interesting footnote in the tragic Skynyrd story. The album opens with it's strongest track: "Give It To Get It", which has the tightness and funkiness of the similarly grooved Skynyrd classic, "I Know A Little", this is followed by a cover of a Curtis Mayfield song "It's Alright", which I believe was culled from his years with the Impressions, it's a faithful cover, but doesn't add anything to, (or take anything away from) the original. The rest of the album potters along at it's own pace, and the only thing that really bothers me about it, is the amount of reverb the producer decided to add to the tracks, to say that it's drenched is an understatement. The other really strong track is "Talkin' About Love", which is another song which would have fit right into the Skynyrd pocket like a glove.

I have to say, that on reflection, this album remains in my collection on the strength of two tracks, and the rest of it just rolls by in an inoffensive if not ineffective way. Steve Gaines was a compelling guitarist, and a massive talent, and this album just gives us a glimmer of what was to come had his life not been cut short.

To summarise, one for the die hard Skynyrd freaks only.

This was bought as a present and went down well. I knew the person wanted the record in the first place so that helped. Good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Gaines One in the Sun 8 Aug. 2008
By D. P. Galog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Excellent cd if your a fan of Steve Gaines.Bit different than when he joined Lynyrd Skynyrd in the arrangements as they had a bit more of a rock sound ,but still sounds great.The album was recorded in 1974 at Sun Studio but wasn't released untill 1988 which seems a pity as I think it's a good album.Songs are written by Steve except for one cover and you can hear the style that he brought to Skynyrd's Street Survivors album.He was an exceptional guitarist and singer(something people may not have been aware of as he only sung a couple songs on Survivors)and with some cool slide guitar it rocks.Have heard a few live songs on Youtube-check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 9 May 2012
By Skic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Anyone that gave a bad review of this man's work misunderstands one of a few things. 1-this recordings are raw and are not up to the usual standard we have all became so spoiled with. 2- that these are salvaged recordings and were never meant to be used in this way to start with. 3- As far as the standard he set in Skynyrd, no doubt He getting his shot with Skynyrd was his break, his shot, but that does not take away from this man's awesome talent and a songwriter, a singer and most of all a guitarist. 4- Another thought, I see guitar players at local venues who no ones ever heard of that are better than many I've ever heard on recordings, LP's, CD's etc. So having heard of someone does not have anything to do with their talent or ability. Somde just never got their break, some just did not sell out to the record companies and their junk.
Skynyrd was no doubt one of if not the best band ever. But just read Ronnie Van Zant thoughts on Steve Gaines and you will know how much he thought of him as a musician and most of all as a guitarist. Skyrnyrd was innovative and hot, but when Gaines came along he revived a fire in them and open the door for a deeper direction for their future and no one knew this better than Van Zant. Yes, are these recordings are raw, but it's the only other keepsake we have from such a brilliant guitar player. And anyone who is a guitarist knows he was special and will appreciate these recordings. I'd put any Skynyrd axe man against any of this junk that comes out today. And Steve Gaines would be right up there with them all.
So raw or not. if you like Gaines and like superb playing, add this one to your arsenal for a change of pace and to get a taste of Steve Gaines humble beginnings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good jazzy blues sound 7 Feb. 2010
By Todd7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Steve Gaines is one of my favorite guitarists of all time, behind such greats as Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, and Tony Iommi. This is a lot of praise for a man who was around for just 2 albums with Lynyrd Skynyrd (One More from the Road (live))and Street Survivors. We all know that he was tragically killed in the Skynyrd plane crash on October 20, 1977, along with his sister, Cassie, and Ronnie Van Zant. During his time in Skynyrd, he made an indelible impact, and was admired by band members and fans alike. Ronnie Van Zant was quoted as saying, "We will all be in his shadow someday." Of course, he was talking about his exceptional guitar playing. However, Ronnie had so much confidence in him, that he let him share in the vocals on some songs, and even let him sing his own song (Ain't No Good Life) on Street Survivors. His solo project, ONE IN THE SUN, is a different brand of music that highlights his versatility. It consists of mainly jazz fused with blues. I think that the album has an identity all its own, and standout tracks include On the Road, One in the Sun, Take My Time, and the cover of It's Alright. I've never been crazy about Steve's voice, but it still has a way of blending in nicely. I think that he oversings One in the Sun a bit, but this is minor. His great songwriting and guitar ability more than make up for the shaky vocals. Overall, it's a solid release, and is good traveling music. 8/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Gaines was incredible!!!!! 15 Mar. 2014
By E. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Steve Gaines only solo release, "One in the Sun" is truly a work of nearly magical artistry. Ronnie Van Zant of Lynyrd Skynryd, who marveled at the vocal and instrumental skills of Mr. Gaines, Lynyrd Skynyrd's newest member, stated both publicly and privately that the band would "all be in his shadow one day". Steve's contributions to Lynyrd Skynyrd included his co-lead vocals with Ronnie on the co-written "You've Got That Right" and the rousing guitar boogie on "I Know A Little" which he wrote before he joining Lynyrd Skynyrd. so confident was Ronnie Van Zant of Steve's abilities that on the album "One More From The Road", "Street Survivors" and some concerts featured Steve delivering his self-penned bluesy "Ain't No Good Life" – one of the few songs in the Lynyrd Skynyrd catalog to feature a lead vocalist other than Ronnie Van Zant. Steve Gaines bluesy rock 'n roll, if he'd survived the plane crash, would have surely catapulted him to international stardom perhaps even rivaling other blues greats as incredible as Stevie Ray Vaughn. each track is a masterpiece. "One in the Sun" is a must have cd for fans of southern rock, blues or just classic rock 'n roll. I highly recommend this lone solo project, especially to fans of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd. my personal rating is a powerful Five *S*T*A*R*S!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaines - A true master 13 Sept. 2014
By Tim Stuecheli - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Flat out one of the most underrated guitarists of all time - and one of the best as well. Steve was truly a master at song writing, and its sad his life ended so soon. The band was gaining even more steam (Lynyrd Skynyrd) with Gaines in the fold and who knows now where they'd be now.
