Editorial Reviews

Lynyrd Skynyrd is the ultimate Southern Rock band. Their signature three guitar attack coupled to superb songwriting and massive on stage charisma has rightfully earned them a reputation as one of the greatest live bands of all time. The original band infamously had their career cut short by a disastrous plane crash in 1977, which took the lives of three members plus two of their road crew and seriously injured several others. In 1987 the surviving members reformed the band with Johnny Van Zant taking the place of his brother Ronnie. This concert from 1996 captures the band on top form at Rockpalast's Loreley Festival on June 23, 1996.

Bonus Features: As a real treat for Lynyrd Skynyrd fans we have three tracks from the Hamburg Musikhalle on December 5, 1974 featuring the original line-up of the band performing their three best known songs.

THIS IS A WELCOME "SURPRISE" DVD FROM LYNYRD SKYNYRD.THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING 14 SONG DVD, THAT WAS FILMED AT THE ROCKPALAST "LORELEY" FESTIVAL IN GERMANY, DURING 1996. IT WAS FILMED BEFORE A VERY LARGE, ENTHUSIASTIC CROWD. THE BAND IS GREAT, THE ATMOSPHERE IS GREAT, THE MUSIC IS GREAT, MAKING THIS ONE GREAT CONCERT DVD!!! YOU EVEN GET THE REBEL FLAG AS A BACKDROP.

They perform all their classics, plus you get a few rare ones, like "I ain't the one", the entire version of "double trouble" instead of the medley version, and "SWAMP MUSIC" (This is a great rarity for concert dvd's, It's a great song, it has a reference to the late Bluesman Son House - ..."when the hound dogs start barking, they sound like Son House singing the blues..."). These make this concert more special.

You get the line-up of Johnny Van Zant on Lead Vocals, Gary Rossington on guitar, Rickey Medlocke on guitar, and the late Hughie Thomossom on guitar, Billy Powell on keyboards, the late Leon Wilkeson on bass (this is another reason this dvd is special - it includes both Leon & Hughie who are both now deseased), Owen Hale on drums and Dale Kranz-Rossington and Carol Chase on backing vocals.

The "3 guitar" performances of Gary, Rickey, and Hughie are awesome!!! This was quite a team of guitar players. Just like Gary, Allen and Steve (or Ed), were an awesome team.

THE BONUS MATERIAL CONSISTS OF 3 SONGS: "WORKIN' FOR MCA", "FREEBIRD'AND "SWEET HOME ALABAMA". This was filmed in Hamburg, Germany during 1974. The line-up consists of Ronnie Van Zant on vocals, Ed King on guitar, Gary Rossington on guitar, Allen Collins on guitar, Billy Powell on keyboards, Leon Wilkeson on bass, and Bob Burns on drums.

The main concert featured on this DVD is pretty good, but some of the performances from some of the band members are a little off. The two main redeeming highlights of the main concert with the more contemporary lineup is them performing "Workin' For MCA" (which they no longer could do once they signed to CMC) and the cool guitar solos performed in series by the three guitarists. The band's performance on the Lyve From Steel Town DVD is flawless, and overall I recommend that one over this one if you don't want to get both. However, I encourage you to get both, because several songs on this DVD do not appear on the Steel Town DVD because the latter was recorded shortly after their awesome "Twenty" album was released, so several of their old numbers were replaced with material from "Twenty."

The best thing about this DVD, of course, is the vintage footage of the old Lynyrd Skynyrd with Ronnie, Ed King, et al performing back in 1974. The sound quality is predicatably bad, but not unbearably horrible like some bootleg VHS recordings you can find on ebay. One cool part of that footage features Ed King doing a nice, melodic solo before the last verse of "Free Bird" that later was always occupied by Billy Powell--interesting--never heard a live version of Free Bird without Billy's solo. The only bad part (and it's just humorous rather than annoying) of this classic footage is Ed King singing harmony on "Sweet Home"--yikes! No wonder they got the Honkettes later on! :)

This 2 cd set was absolutely the worst quality I've ever had the displeasure of viewing . The discs were mislabeled compared to the back cover,a minor nitpick considering the poor footage. Disc 2 from 1977 was allful b&w blurriness while disc one fared slightly better in color.Sound was patchey at best. this was hastily thrown together. Save your money & stay away! buyer beware

This lineup has the main core of the classic line up of VanZant, Collins, Rossington, and Powell. Ed King and Bob Burns are on guitar and drums respectfully.

These 3 songs are worth the price alone!

Enjoy.

This 2DVD atrocity contains two LYNYRD SKYNYRD shows already available. "Live In London 1975," is actually a live performance of the two-guitar version of the band on a special edition of the great UK rock show "The Old Grey Whistle Test." It's available in EXCELLENT quality on the Deluxe Edition of Gimme Back My Bullets. It's also available on the HORRIBLE IMV BLUELINE DVD Same Old Blues: Live In London 1975. The 2nd concert "Live In The USA 1977" is actually the documentary Freebird The Movie, the version linked here also contains 'The Tribute Tour' DVD. The label 'Sweet Home Alabama' is on, LASER MEDIA, seems to be re-releasing previously available sub-standard concert DVDs under different titles that were on the IMMORTAL and IMV BLUELINE labels. Reviews of many IMV BLUELINE DVDs accuse them of downloading their content from YouTube! ANYTHING on the IMMORTAL label is a professional looking crock of...well, you get the gist. It's probably just one company pulling the old bait-and-switch, so repeat after me, "I will NEVER buy a DVD on the IMMORTAL, IMV BLUELINE or LASER MEDIA labels......
