“Lynyrd Skynyrd was probably the greatest American rock band of all time, backing their triple threat guitar sound with exceptional songs that brought significant elements of blues, soul, and country music to the mix.”
—Roger Holland, PopMatters review of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Gold.
Lynyrd Skynyrd—“Gimme 3 Steps”
Lynyrd Skynyrd—“Call Me the Breeze” [crank up the volume, the sound quality is poor, but this is one of Skynyrd’s finest songs, especially live]
Lynyrd Skynyrd—“Free Bird” [Live in Oakland]
Lynyrd Skynyrd—“Sweet Home Alabama” [Live on The Old Grey Whistle Test]
