Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More From The Road (1976) (Deluxe Edit 2001)

One year before the tragic plane crash that killed Lynyrd Skynyrd, main man Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Steve Gaines, they added Gaines to the mix to revive the three-guitar sound that had worked so well for the group on tracks such as "Free Bird". In 1976 the band toured and released this double live album featuring such signature songs as "Gimme Three Steps", "Tuesday's Gone", "Saturday Night Special", "Sweet Home Alabama" and, of course, a blistering 11-and-a-half-minute version of "Free Bird". A cool cover of JJ Cale's "Call Me the Breeze" adds a little variety. It's easy to see why thismore… band dominated the rock charts in the 1970s.,,Bob Hope

One More For From The Road was recorded live during Skynyrd's sold-out three-night stand at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia in July, 1976. The ornate 4,600-seat landmark was packed to the rafters with a rabid, Confederate-flag-waving mob of Skynyrd faithful, who felt the group's thunderous rock 'n' roll hurricane blowing full force. The interplay between the newcomer Steve Gaines and veteran guitarists Gary Rossington and Allen Collins inspired the whole band to new heights of frenzied virtuosity. In the eye of this Southern cyclone
stood vocalist Ronnie Van Zant, barefoot, calmly orchestrating the pandemonium surrounding him with ferocious growls, snarls, and wolf-whistles.

The three nights of live recording were a delirious celebration of Skynyrd's catalog, with the band playing al their classic hits and treating fans to scorching performances of "T For Texas," "Travellin' Man" and "Crossroads," none of which were available on their studio albums, along with such signature songs as "Gimme Three Steps", "Tuesday's Gone", "Saturday Night Special", "Sweet Home Alabama" and, of course, a blistering 11-and-a-half-minute version of "Free Bird".The recordings of Skynyrd at the Fox captured the group at the pinnacle of their powers with the best performances from the three nights being picked for release. The resulting live album was the definitive work of the band's career.

One More For From The Road became Skynyrd's breakthrough record. The double-live set was released on September 13, 1976, and immediately rocketed into the Top 10, becoming the group's fastest selling LP ever. It would soon join Pronounced and Second Helping as Skynyrd's third million-selling record, making them the only other Southern band up to that time, besides the Allman Brothers, to have reached platinum status. To date, One More From The Road has gone triple platinum, with more than three million albums sold.
