Ronnie's Song

Biography

Jimmie Van Zant was born in Jacksonville, Florida, a city known as “the home of southern rock royalty.”
His mother spent hours every day playing gospel tunes on the family’s upright piano encouraging Jimmie to start piano and guitar lessons at the age of six. Jimmie’s home continued to be filled with music whenever cousin Ronnie Van Zant used his living room as a ... Read more in Amazon's Jimmie Van Zant Store

This CD is simply great. Jimmie Van Zant (cousin of Ronnie, Johnny, & Donnie) gives us some great southern rock tunes on this CD. The first song, "Get Up", is a great country-rocker that reminds me a little of Molly Hatchet's "Flirtin' With Disaster" (only this one is better). "Bad Habits" is a bit more hard/southern rock (not as much country) and is also a great song. "Ronnie's Song" is great and brings tears to my eyes. It's a bit like "Free Bird" in how it starts with a slower & softer tone and turns into a great jam. I give "Free Bird" a 10/10 & I give this one a 9/10. It's that good! "Angel in the Night" is another good one. Not as good as the first 3, but close. "Southern Comfort" doesn't really do much for me. I usually skip that one, but I listen to it occasionally. We then go on to a pretty decent cover of "Simple Man". It's not as good as the original, obviously, but I doubt that Jimmie intended it to be. Next is "Here To Stay", a great country tune about a family that lives on a farm and is determined never to sell it. You will hear a little bit of "Sweet Home Alabama" at a few parts, but in no way is this a copy of it. The final song, "Party in the Parking Lot" is basically just a good boogie tune that will make you want to get up and dance. Maybe not the best tune to end the album with, but still a good one.

If you're a Skynyrd fan (or even just a southern rock fan), your collection will not be complete without this album.

I know, the whole stars & bars cover design will be offensive to some people and will probably stop certain people from buying it (which is an understandable reaction). I just wish everybody could understand that they don't use it as a sign of racism or to be offensive; it's just a symbol of the South to them.

Okay, of course he's cashing in on his family-name (Jimmy's a cousin of the late Ronnie) and, yes, this sounds a bit like a poor man's Lynyrd Skynyrd. But anyone who likes Molly Hatchet or Skynyrd (old OR new) won't be dissapointed with this one. It contains solid, competent southern rock, which is al too rare in this day and age. Apart from that: Jimmy really seems to believe in this type of music and really loves playing it.

As stated in other reviews I've read,I must agree that the Van Zant family has yet another great musician/song writer in Jimmie Van Zant. Southern Comfort is a must have for the southern rock music fan. Ronnie's Song and the Skynyrd cover of Simple Man are for me the high lights of this CD. Buy it....you won't be disappointed.

Jimmie Van Zant, a cousin of Ronnie, Donnie, and Johnny, has joined the family business with a hot-rockin' album. SOUTHERN COMFORT mixes the styles of Skynyrd, the Outlaws, and .38 Special in a totally original way, with a combination of blazing rockers and soulful ballads. The only second-rate cut is the insipid ballad "Angel In The Night", and while "Ronnie's Song" and the remake of "Simple Man" have been given a bum rap, they are actually excellent. Overall, this is a great album by a member of rock's first family of singers.

If you like the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd you will like this album. The cousin of the late Ronnie van Zant shows he can match up with his other cousin Johnny and deliver a good southern rock album. Best song of the album is the amazing 8 min. plus "Ronnie's Song" of course a tribute to one of the legends of the South. This song only is worth the price of the CD alone but there's plenty more such as the Skynyrd cover Simple Man.

Southern Comfort is truly just that. SOUTHERN COMFORT it is absolutely the best cd that I have purchased in a long time. Every song on the cd is well worth listening to. The haunting melody of RONNIES SONG sends goosbumps over ones entire body. I had the great fortune to be asked on stage by Jimmie himself recently and I can tell you it was the thrill of a lifetime. He truly is a Southern Gentleman. Yes, its true that he does sound like and also bears resemblance to cousin Ronnie but he is definitely a tremendous talent in his own right. It may be true that because he is a Van Zant may have led me to see him originally but the fact that he is a wonderful artist and preformer as well as a uniquely gentle person will definely keep me coming back for more. ROCK ON JIMMIE ROCK ON!!!!
