(PRONOUNCED' LEH-'NERD 'SKIN-'NERD) - Lynyrd Skynyrd
TRACK LISTING: I Ain't the One, Tuesday's Gone, Gimme Three Steps, Simple Man, Things Goin' On, Mississippi Kid, Poison Whiskey, Free Bird
IMPRESSIONS: As the itunes review rightly puts it: "One of Southern Rock's greatest five year runs begins with this album." This album was released the day before my eighth birthday on August 13, 1973. And of course it contains my favourite Skynyrd song of all-time; the trouble is there's two of them. I wanna say my fave is "Tuesday's Gone" but how can I deny the power and the glory of "Free Bird"?!?!
