Biography

Beyond the tragedy, the history, the raging guitars and the killer songs, ultimately, Lynyrd Skynyrd is about an indomitable will. About survival of spirit; unbowed, uniquely American, stubbornly resolute.

With their first set of new studio material since 2003’s Vicious Cycle, legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd returns with God & Guns, due out September 29 on Loud & ... Read more in Amazon's Lynyrd Skynyrd Store

The sound quality and artwork are excellent.
Robert
The band's 3 guitar attack and the smart lyrics of Ronnie Van Zant made them one of the most popular American bands of the seventies.

It has all the typical hits but it also has all the great songs from Skynyrd that you would NEVER hear on the radio.

This is hands down the best Skynyrd compilation you can find, well worth the hefty import price. Their first, "Gold & Platinum" left out "Call Me The Breeze", "Don't Ask Me No Questions" and "Workin' For MCA", plus it contained live versions of a few songs (including "Freebird"). Later compilations like "Skynyrd's Innyrds" and "The Essential Lynyrd Skynyrd" added these songs back, but still left off other essentials and still included live versions and alternate takes. This is the only Skynyrd album that (for me, anyway) includes absolutely every essential track, plus a few cool ones you may not know ("White Dove", "Searching", "Cry For A Bad Man", etc.) all in their original well-known versions. And the packaging is really cool!
Anyone who complains about a song missing from this collection is obviously meant to be a completist who should go out and get all of their studio albums. That aside, I don't understand why the definitive compilation from the greatest of Southern Rock bands had to tracked down in Germany of all places!

Lynyrd Skynyrd along with the Allman Brothers Band are perhaps the greatest practitioners of Southern Rock. This 2 cd import set contains 30 of their best and most well known songs. The band's 3 guitar attack and the smart lyrics of Ronnie Van Zant made them one of the most popular American bands of the seventies. The Jacksonville band was influenced not only by the blues and country influences of the South but also by British rock bands like the Cream and Free. Allen Collin's Clapton like solos were a contrast to Gary Rossington's more Paul Kossoff like sustain while Ed King added his own distinctive fills and solos as necessary. Later after King quit Steve Gaines added a fingerpicking element to the three guitar attack. This set contains early material from their "First and Last" album through "Street Survivors". Radio favorites like "Free Bird", "Gimme Three Steps", "Saturday Night Special", "Sweet Home Alabama", "That Smell", "Simple Man" and "Tuesday's Gone" are all included. Also included are a number of my favorites which are not included on the domestic "Essential Lynyrd Skynyrd" compilation like "Poison Whiskey", "The Needle And The Spoon", "On The Hunt" and "Searching". It should be noted that this set contains 5 more tracks than the "Essential Lynyrd Skynyrd" set (6 if you consider that "Free Bird" appears on that set twice). "Old Time Greats" contains only original studio versions of the tracks, no live versions or alternate takes.
My only minor quibble with this set is that the first disk is around 65 minutes while the second disk is around 70.

This is easily the best Lynyrd Skynrd compliation there is I looked hard and long all the other ones "The Essential", "Gold & Platinum", the Best of etc. leave out a song or two or did something to make me keep looking. Figures its an import from Germany to .If your a fan of Lynrd Skynrd but dont need all there albums this is deffinetly worth ordering if you can't find it in stores.

Virtually every song you would want in a Skynryd album is here. I am impressed with the sound quality as well.

This 2-disc set of 30 songs covers the original Lynyrd Skynyrd string of hits (1971-1977) and is, by far, the best and most complete of all the "best of" compilations. The sound quality and artwork are excellent. The only drawback is one of Skynyrd's great songs is absent --- "The Ballad of Curtis Loew". Other than this one oversight, you will not find a better representation of Lynyrd Skynyrd's talent and impact than this set.
