Thanks to all the people that spent a lot of time/effort to record, transfer, master, EQ,
and get this music onto the internet so we can finally have a chance to hear it.
If the Allman Brothers invented Southern Rock at the dawn of the Seventies, then Lynyrd Skynyrd perfected it as the decade wore on.
Lynyrd Skynyrd boiled down its potent regional influences -blues, country, soul- into a heady, potentially crippling homebrew.
The group\'s initial hook was its three-guitar attack, full of regional pride and cocky boisterous hard rock, as opposed to the
Allman Brothers\' trademark two-guitar leads and more open-ended blues.
The core members of Lynyrd Skynyrd first met in high school in Jacksonville, Florida.
Van Zant, Allen Collins, and Gary Rossington formed the band My Backyard in 1965, eventually joined by Leon Wilkeson and Billy Powell.
Their later name immortalized a gym teacher, Leonard Skinner, who was known to punish students who had long hair.
Guitarists Allen Collins and Gary Rossington formed the nucleus of Skynyrd\'s frontline.
Lead singer Ronnie Van Zant was the band\'s anchor, and bassist Leon Wilkeson and guitarist Ed King (Strawberry Alarm Clock) rounded out
The band, with original drummer Bob Burns, was playing in Atlanta at a bar called Funocchio\'s in 1972, when they were spotted by Al Kooper,
who was on a tour with Badfinger and also scouted bands for MCA\'s new Sounds of the South label.
Kooper signed Skynyrd and produced its 1973 debut, "Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd".
Lynyrd Skynyrd first got radio airplay with the lengthy "Free Bird" complete with its fiery three-guitar solo, making this track beyond doubt the
most requested live song in existence.
The band hooked up with the Who\'s Quadrophenia Tour in 1973 and acquired a reputation as a killer live act.
Essential for die-hard fans are "Skynyrd\'s First: The Complete Muscle Shoals Album" (1998), and the rarities set "Collectybles" (2000).
