Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote A collection of 47 tracks spanning 1970-1977 featuring the original line-up, led by Ronnie Van Zant. 15 of the tracks are previously unreleased.
Muze PNote The set is packaged in a 6" x 12" box with a 64-page booklet which contains many rare photos, a biography by the co-producers of the set, and a musical overview by critic John Swenson.
Muze PNote Along with the tribute album, the box set was one of the music industry's leading marketing tools in the late 20th century. Just about every classic rocker who had some rarities, outtakes, and unused live tracks lying around had them polished up and put alongside their best known tracks for a multi-disc set.
Muze PNote Lynyrd Skynyrd got the treatment in 1991 with its self-titled box, a three disc, 47-track overview of its career starting with the band's very first demo recordings from 1970 and including material from what would become its swan song, 1977's STREET SURVIVORS. Hardcore fans will be interested in such previously unreleased early demos as "Junkie," "He's Alive," and a truncated version of "Freebird," as well as such standards as "Sweet Home Alabama," "On the Hunt," "You Got That Right," and of course the official version of "Freebird."

Producer: Andy McKaie; Ron O'Brien

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone 8 of 10
Skynyrd broadly fit into the hard-driving improvisational blues format pioneered by the Allman Brothers, although the band's welcome bent for brevity keeps most of the tracks tight and to the point. On the other hand, their nine-minute "Freebird"... offers a tour of blues guitar expertise, conducted by Allen Collins and to riveting effect. In fact, Skynyrd works with three lead guitarists, a density of stringy instrumentation at times recalling Byrds as much as Allmans. ...the blunter blues tracks form the album's meat with cuts like "Simple Man" revealing a no-nonsense powerhouse rock unit of modest proportions but considerable promise. - Jim Miller

Bio

Lynyrd Skynyrd has been synonymous with Southern Rock n Roll music for over 25 years. Vocalist Ronnie Van Zant and guitarists Allen Collins and Gary Rossington formed My Backyard while in high school in Jacksonville, FL. Soon after, they added bassist Leon Wilkeson, keyboardist Billy Powell, and drummer Bob Burns. They changed their name to Lynyrd Skynyrd, derived from their gym teacher Leonard Skinner, known for punishing students with long hair. Guitarist Ed King joined the band before the recording of their 1973 debut album, Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd. In 1974, their multi-Platinum 2nd album Second Helping produced the hit single "Sweet Home Alabama", and drummer Artimus Pyle replaced Bob Burns in late 1974. Nuthin' Fancy, released in 1975, was the band's 1st Top 10 album. Guitarist Steve Gaines joined the band before the recording of the 1976 double-live album One More From The Road--their 2nd Top 10 album. Their 6th album, Street Survivors was released on October 17, 1977. 3 days later, en route to a show in Baton Rouge, their privately-chartered plane crashed outside Gillsburg, MS. Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines and his sister, backup vocalist Cassie Gaines, were killed. The rest of the band was injured. The group disbanded. Rossington and Collins formed a new band of 4 surviving band members in 1980, and Pyle formed the Artimus Pyle Band in 1982. Collins was left paralyzed after a 1986 car crash, in which his girlfriend was killed. He died in 1990 from respiratory failure. Lynyrd Skynyrd reunited in 1987 with Rossington, Powell, King, Wilkeson, new vocalist Johnny Van Zant and new guitarist Randall Hall. Their reunion tour was captured on the 1988 double-live album Southern By The Grace Of God/Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute Tour--1987. Van Zant, Rossington, Wilkeson and Powell added former Blackfoot frontman Rickey Medlocke, ex-Outlaw Hughie Thomasson and former Damn Yankee drummer Michael Cartellone to the band. The group signed with CMC in 1997 and released new studio album Twenty, followed by Lyve From Steel Town in 1998, Edge Of Forever in 1999,Then And Now in June 2000 followed by Skynyrd Family Christmas in September.
