2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly assembled collection loses the impact of a great band 28 Aug. 2003
By Andrew Goldman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Thyrty is a very poor representation of one of the world's greatest bands. If you are looking to get a variety of Skynyrd in one fell swoop, skip Thyrty and go for a couple of the original albums -- Pronounced, Second Helping, Street Survivors, One from the Road -- instead. It will cost the same and there will be no letdowns.
There are several flaws in this album. The most glaring is the song order. It starts out great with Sweet Home Alabama, but instantly nose dives with an obscure outtake that while not bad is also very mellow and not the signature Skynyrd sound. This is followed by another obscure, slow blues number that is also an outtake. There is a reason these songs never made it onto an album. They should have been saved for much later in the collection or a different collection of similar matrial. By the time the blues cut ends, 15 min. have passed and the momentum and kick of typical Skynyrd is totally gone. Down South Jukin starts the momentum again but once again the next song is an obscure acoustic tune. Finally, the first CD rocks out with 5-6 tunes from Pronounced and Second Helping only to end with another outtake.
The second CD starts out great, but here is the next flaw. Most of the tunes on this CD are from the reunion tour in 87 and the "new" Skynyrd fronted by Johnny Van Zandt. There is no way to know this until you open up the CD. The flow also sucks on the second half of this CD.
Thyrty could have been incredible if the song order had been done differently - either cronological or by simply putting the outtakes together on the second CD along with the newer stuff.
Take my advise and get the original albums. They rock beginning to end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thirty Years of Great Southern Rock!! 12 Aug. 2003
By Louie Bourland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lynyrd Skynyrd commemorates the 30th anniversary of their debut album with the release of "Thyrty", a collection that spans Skynyrd's entire career from 1970 up to the present including music from every album the band has ever released.
"Thyrty" includes such Skynyrd classics as "Gimme Three Steps", "Workin' For MCA", "What's Your Name", "That Smell" and the immortal "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Free Bird". There are also tracks from the recent years of the band with Johnny Van Zant as vocalist. It's truly amazing to hear the similarities between the voices of Ronnie and Johnny. One would almost think it was the same person singing all the songs on this compilation.
For die-hard Skynyrd fanatics, "Thyrty" includes one unreleased track from 1970 entitled "Blues Medley" which is a 10-minute stellar blues jam featuring a youthful Ronnie Van Zant singing his heart out along with some jaw-dropping guitar work from Allen Collins and Gary Rossington. This compilation is almost worth it for this track alone.
This latest Lynyrd Skynyrd compilation is a definitive retrospective of Jacksonville, Florida's greatest band. If you don't own any of the other many Skynyrd compilations out there, "Thyrty" is definitely one to have. You get music from every era of the band plus an rare unreleased track and a CD booklet loaded with great photos and a brief but detailed history of the band. Definitely Essential.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Primer 30 Sept. 2004
By Kurt Harding - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having read all the listener reviews I have come to the conclusion that there will always be those who can't accept that Lynyrd Skynyrd without Ronnie Van Zant can be authentically Lynyrd Skynyrd since he was the compositional soul of the band. I have long been guilty of being one of those who feel like that. But after listening to Thyrty, I am convinced that the spirit of Lynyrd Skynyrd, diminished as it is by Van Zant's absence, lives on.
This CD is not for old time, hard core fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd as it was, but is an excellent primer of the band and its sound as it has evolved through the years for younger listeners and for those who can't afford to buy every CD. I remain partial to the old sound. For good raucous party music, its hard to beat the sounds of I Ain't the One, Gimme Three Steps, Call Me The Breeze, Free Bird, That Smell, and What's Your Name.
While the new lineup just doesn't have the song-writing wizardry of Ronnie Van Zant to help the band back to the lofty heights it once occupied, there remains plenty of the raw energy and redneck rock attitude to please most fans. Thyrty offers a nice mix of studio recordings,live cuts, and acoustic versions to give the new fan an overall feel for the band's sound. And incidentally, Smokestack Lightnin' is not at all the same great song so often covered by the Yardbirds and others in the 1960s.
Long-time fans already know the old stuff. For new fans, I recommend One More From The Road in addition to this as a CD that reveals what the band was capable of at its height. In the meantime, enjoy this for what it is and hope for thyrty more years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent career-spanning Lynyrd Skynyrd package 22 Feb. 2007
By R. Gorham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THE BAND: The early era (prior to the '77 plane crash) includes Ronnie Van Zant (vocals)*, Gary Rossington (guitar), Allen Collins (guitar)*, Steve Gaines (guitar)*, Ed King (guitar), Billy Powell (piano), Leon Wilkeson (bass), Larry Junstrum (bass), Bob Burns (drums), and Artimus Pyle (drums). The later era band (1980's - present) includes Johnny Van Zant (vocals), Rickey Medlocke (guitar), Hughie Thomasson (guitar), Randall Hall (guitar), Ean Evans (bass), Owen Hale (drums), etc. * deceased

THE DISC(S): (2003) Thirty tracks on two discs clocking in at approximately 152 total minutes (77+ minutes on disc-1, and 74+ on disc-2). Included with the discs is a 22-page booklet containing song titles/credits, a 12-page intro to the band covering good times and bad, numerous band photos, and what songs came from which albums and the year released. Songs range from 1973-2003, though the 2 unreleased songs are from 1970 (prior to Lynyrd Skynyrd's debut). Digitally remastered sound. Label - UTV Records / MCA.

ALBUM REPRESENTATION: Pronounced (4 songs), Second Helping (4), Nuthin' Fancy (1), Street Survivors (4), First And Last (2), One More From The Road (2), Southern By The Grace Of God (3), Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991 (1), The Last Rebel (1), Endangered Species (1), Twenty (1), Lyve From Steel Town (1), Edge Of Forever (1), Vicious Cycle (1), Box Set (1), Unreleased (2).

COMMENTS: There are numerous Skynyrd compilations out there... "All Time Greatest Hits", "Gold & Platinum", "Essential", "Skynyrd's Innyrds", "Gold", "20th Century Masters", "Ultimate Collection", "Best Of The Rest", "Box Set", this "30th Anniversary" collection, and a few others. For me, this "30th Anniversary" set is the best career-spanning collection to date on the market. THE GOOD: Lots of music. All the staples are here - "Sweet Home Alabama", "Tuesday's Gone", "Gimme Three Steps", "Free Bird", "Saturday Night Special", "Call Me The Breeze", "Workin' For MCA", "Simple Man", "What's Your Name", "That Smell", "You Got That Right", etc. All the songs on disc-1 are early era tracks featuring Ronnie Van Zant on vocals. Disc-2 is a mix of early and late era songs. Extensive liner notes containing some good inside info and great vintage photos... only thing wrong - no song lyrics. 6 live tracks featuring old and new band members... two songs from pre '77, and four songs live from the 80's and 90's. Digitally remastered sound is crisp. THE NOT SO GOOD: Most compilations are not without flaws, and "Thyrty" is no exception. The faults here are minor but still worth mentioning. I strongly feel chronological order was needed here - a 30 year career proves deserving and it would show the band's sound evolution over the past four decades. Only a few songs missing that should have been included - "The Needle And The Spoon", "On The Hunt", "Ain't No Good Life" and "Don't Ask Me No Questions". Only one track from "Nuthin' Fancy"? The two unreleased tracks are decent, but by no means classic - they should have been placed at the end of disc-2... not in the beginning of disc-1 (and creating a poor start to a long listen). In fact, I'd have no issue had the 10+ minute "Blues Medley" been omitted and a few of the other missing songs (mentioned above) been added. Lastly, "One More From The Road" was a stunning live album... I put it right up there with other double-album vinyl classics of the day (i.e. - Frampton, UFO, Deep Purple, Kiss, Rush, etc). In my opinion, only 2 tracks from "One More From The Road" is a sin... if anything else Skynyrd's live version of "Free Bird" needs to be here. Skynyrd was always great in concert. OVERALL: An excellent mix. "Thyrty" is the best career-spanning Lynyrd Skynyrd package to date. Lots of music - great to have so many songs all in one place. Polished remastered sound. Nice package (4.5 stars).

4.0 out of 5 stars missing some 21 Dec. 2003
By Innotech - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A really good compilation with some excellent material (and that blues medley is great) but its still missing some great songs, and the last half of the 2nd Cd leaves much to be desired. Still, a reasonably good compilation of this most excellent southern rock band. oops, I mean, THE southern rock band.
