Lynyrd Skynyrd - Atlanta 1993 (1993)



Really, ever since Lynyrd Skynyrd released their second live album, there hardly has been any reason for buying a third or fourth. They mostly feature pretty much the same setlist over and over again. And don't we all crave for them to do something different, actually play some songs from their later albums with Johnny Van Zant? I know I do. Those albums all had some pretty fine tracks, well worth mixing up with the old classic. Well, you must've guessed it already, help is on the way. This album, "Atlanta 1993", is what you need. Lynyrd Skynyrd in support of their "The Last Rebel" album, this gives us a good measure of the new songs, as well as some old. And then some. "Outta Hell In My Dodge", "The Last Rebel" and "Good Lovin's Hard To Find" up against "That Smell" and "Saturday Night Special". And more candy along the way, in the form of "Sweet Home Alabama" sung in duet with Donnie Van Zant. But the real treat here is a sweet version of the Rossington Collins Band classic "Don't Misunderstand Me", sung by Dale Krantz with Travis Tritt. Excellent audio and introduction by their old friend, Mr. Al Kooper. How good can you get it? Hey! I'm modest in demand. I'm a simple man...

Ugh! This is not Skynyrd! I can not listen to this band! Johnny sounds terrible and the guitars are off and drummer is lame!
