Forget the questionable title--did the survivors actually approve it?--and digInnyrds' track listing, which sums up a lot about why so many of us still love this bunch of Southern tough guys. Not only was their triple-guitar howl one of the definitive … see full wiki
If you were born and raised in the South like me, you probably have a special place in your heart for at least one of the tunes on "Skynyrd's Innyrds." Sure, this is far from the best compilation of tunes from the greatest Southern Rock band around, but each and every song on here is worth five stars by itself. From the legendary "Freebird" to jabs at the record label on "Workin' For MCA," to songs of warning like "That Smell," Skynyrd has a little something for everybody. "Saturday Night Special," "Call Me The Breeze" and "Gimme Three Steps" are just a few more of the wonderful tunes you can find on here. "Sweet Home Alabama," which reminds Mr. Young that he ain't needed around anyhow, is pure South. Skynyrd was a rebellious band for a rebellious people, and you really have to be from the South to get them completely.
Anybody who claims to know anything about Southern Rock needs this album. It didn't begin (nor did it end) with Lynyrd Skynyrd, but they are definitely one of the most important bands to ever grace the stage, no matter what genre. I highly recommend this album. It's the perfect "beginner's set" for anyone interested in Southern Rock.
