The most fun you have on a guitar comes when you begin to hear yourself playing something you recognize. They cut some demos at producer Quin Ivy's studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and returned in 1971 to make a proper album at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios. The title track from their 1993 album is a really great song and one of only two post-Ronnie songs in my countdown.
Kooper's innate musicality and studio know-how helped capture the seemingly incongruous elements in Lynyrd Skynyrd's sound. Besides their Southern heritage, Skynyrd also shared a taste for harmonized guitar parts with the Allman Brothers. Those songs have just been so over-hyped and over-played that they are no longer as fun to listen to.
I had the opportunity to see Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Outlaws, Wet Willie, The Allman Brothers Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels Band, ZZ Top,38 Special, Pure Prairie League, as well as many lesser known artists when they were at their peak.

In the studio Lynyrd Skynyrd created the distinct lead sound by double tracking the guitar. Lynyrd Skynyrd had four platinum albums in the 70's, three of which Acoustic Cover went double platinum.
This is the kind of record guaranteed to feed the needs of the multi-generational Skynyrd Nation, and continue the renewed vigor the band exhibited with their last album, 2009's God & Guns. Towards the end of the 60s and into the early 70s the Creedence Clearwater Revival became famous for such songs as: Born on the Bayou, Have you ever seen the rain and Bad Moon Rising.
Thirty years had passed since the release of their debut album, and Lynyrd Skynyrd Simpl Man was, despite incalculable setbacks, still making music. They didn't fit on Street Survivors. The songs eventually ended up on the Neil Young albums Rust Never Sleeps and Hawks & Doves.
In 2007 they released a new double live CD entitled FOGHAT LIVE II , (recorded in 2005 & 2007) to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the original Foghat LIVE', and the reviews were exceptional!
