Forget the questionable title--did the survivors actually approve it?--and dig Innyrds' track listing, which sums up a lot about why so many of us still love this bunch of Southern tough guys. Not only was their triple-guitar howl one of the definitive sounds of the whole post-Allmans movement, singer Ronnie Van Zant put his smarts--and his intelligence--to work on lyrics like "Saturday Night Special" (an anti-gun screed), "Workin' for MCA" (a not-grinning shot at the band's record label), and "That Smell" (a warning about his own excesses). And what's that other song called? Oh yeah, "Free Bird." --Rickey Wright

"What rocket scientists came up with this poor excuse for a Best of... Album? Considering that Skynyrd only produced a couple of studio albums it is strange that several of their best songs are not included. The most glaring omission is "Tuesdays gone", they also should have had "Simple Man", "Curtis Loew", and "the Needle and the Spoon". These songs are much better than some of the songs that were included. I hate to give only one star to an album by A great band like this, but it is just not what I am looking for in a Greatest Hits album"

"My buddy had this CD years ago about 10 years ago and I ruined it. This was my gateway into classic rock. I'm so glad they brought it back. I bought a replacement for him and one for me. For a Greatest Hits album that is almost 20 years old, it does the trick. It's the only album I could find the outtake version of my favorite song. 10:06 of bliss. Not to say any of the more recent compilations are more complete, but this is a great way to learn what Skynyrd's all about."
