The Eagle Rock Entertainment release captures the group performing its first two studio albums, Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd and Second Helping, live in their entirety for the first time. The show was recorded this year at a pair of specially staged concerts at the Florida Theatre in Skynyrd’s hometown of Jacksonville, Florida.
Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd was released in 1973 and includes “I Ain’t The One,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “Tuesday’s Gone,” and “Free Bird.” Second Helping was released the following year and includes “Workin’ for MCA,” “Swamp Music,” “Call Me the Breeze,” and the classic southern rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama.”
The Lynyrd Skynyrd lineup today features guitarist Gary Rossington, the only original member, and Johnny Van Zant, brother of founding lead singer Ronnie Van Zant. It also includes guitarist Rickey Medlocke, who played with the band as a drummer in 1970 and 1971 before joining as a guitarist in 1996.
As a bonus, the packages include behind-the-scenes footage with Lynyrd Skynyrd, for a total of nearly two hours.
