Customer Review

on 12 July 2006
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.
