Editorial Reviews

Over 2*1/2* hours of unreleased Skynyrd! In fact, only two of these 26 tracks have ever been available, and those two were both sides of their briefly available local debut single, Michelle/Need All My Friends . The rest includes early Jacksonville and Sheffield, Alabama demos of such tunes as Free Bird and If I'm Wrong , a complete Memphis radio broadcast, seven tunes recorded during the Atlanta performance that resulted in the One More from the Road release and, most importantly, eight unreleased original songs!

Of the many Lynyrd Skynyrd "greatest hits' packages that have come out over the years, this is the most unique. "Collectybles" offers a complete retrospective of the original unit of this awsome band. From their earliest recordings (when they spelled their name "Lynard Skynard" no less), to "Street Survivors" outtakes, this new double CD shows the tremendous growth of Lynyrd Skynyrd in a short amount of time. Take a listen to the early version of "Free Bird", and then listen to the roaring version from the Fox Theater. The difference is just amazing, and really shows how hard Lynyrd Skynyrd worked over time to really improve thier playing. This collection also includes a radio broadcast performance, including songs from "Second Helping" a full year before the album was recorded (like "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Workin' For MCA"). There are also never before released songs included as well. This album really shows that in a short span of time, Lynyrd Skynyrd not only learned how to be a great rock and roll band, they mastered it.

This Cd is simply great. It starts off with a very raw version of Free Bird, and ending with one of the best performaces of the song. This Cd has never before heard songs, like "Need All My Friends", "Michelle" ,and "Jacksonville Kid." All these songs show the greatness of Lynyrd Skynyrd. If you are an avid Skynyrd fan it is a must have. But if you are just starting out try "Second Helping" or "Pronounced". This is a great Cd.

When I got the Skynyrd Box Set five years ago, I thought I pretty much had it all. But then Collectybles was released, and for the tracks it has, I think it's excellent. Highlights include: Memphis- Well, I like it alot for an unfinished track; I even think of it as a tribute to Leon, just listen to his bass on the mid-section. Woman of Mine- Also has good bass by Leon, plus great guitar parts. I Never Dreamed- a really good alternate version, perhaps a tad better than the issued take? Jacksonville Kid- Great alternate lyrics; this song should dispel any doubts one has about Steve Gaines. all in all a great compilation.

I just bought the skynyrd collectybles 2 cd set and I was very impressed with the amount of unreleased or rare songs that I haven't even heard of and I am an avid fan of Skynyrd since the mid 70's. I started listening to the first cd and there were three different versions of Freebird and each one was great. I love the songs that I haven't heard before also. There are a lot of great surprises on this 2 cd set . This is a must for the Skynyrd fan. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!

Taking about Collectybles - it's a Masterpiece. In my opinion this album represents all what Lynyrd Skynyrd was about; raw, powerful and alive! From the start back in the late 60's and 'til late 70's they were Southern Rock. This album proves it. The mighty ABB never even came close. "Michelle" and "If I'm Wrong" are two songs that I loved the second they started. Other rare songs like "No One Can Take Your Place", "Hide Your Face" and "Bad Boy Blues" shows the variety in style that Skynyrd had in the early beginning of their career. It's a shame it had to end so soon and sudden. If I have to come up with one critical remark about the album, it has to be that "Freebird" is represented three times. I agree that it is one of the best songs Skynyrd have made, but three times is one to much. I guess they will show the improvement of the song over the years, and it really has improved and changed a lot. But don't let this stop you - get your hands on this album, 'coz it's smokin'.

2 CD SET OF UNREALEASED SONGS FROM THE STUDIO AND LIVE IN CONCERT IS A MUST FOR ALL TRUE FANS FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE PRESENT. CD CONTAINS LIVE VERSIONS OF "FREE BIRD" TO WORKING MAN TO GREAT OUTAKES FROM DIFFERENT SEESIONS. GREAT SONG IN CALLED "MICHELLE" AND "JACKSONVILLE KID" AND THERE ARE ALSO ALTERNATIVE VERSION OF SONGS WITH JUST MUSIC AND NO VOCALS. ITS WORTH BUYING EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE LIVE SONGS THAT ARE ON OINE MORE FOR THE ROAD ,BUT THERE ARE DIFFERENT VERSIONS

This compilation provides an insight into the inner workings of one of the greatest rock bands of all time. If you're a Skynyrd fan as I am, this is a must. I bought this one for Ronnie Van Zant's last recording "Jacksonville Kid," but soon began to appreciate the other cool stuff on here. Of course, I can't ever get enough of Free Bird. Everybody tell me, what song is it you want to hear?
