A Good Compilation At An Excellent Price

Lynyrd Skynyrd should need no introduction, so let's start with what you actually get for your money. This is a "no-frills" boxed set of 3 CD's from Germany -there are no lavish inserts. Each of the three CD's comes in its own jewel case with a single page insert that duplicates the (fairly unimaginative) slipcase artwork on the outside and inside has the tracks listed with details of the length of each song, the line-up, the composers, the producer and the year. It would be nice if the album on which each track originally appeared was listed too but this is a minor quibble. There are 36 tracks, twelve on each disc (nearly three hours of music in total) -and the good news is that there's no filler, no live recordings or demos, no later recordings -everything is from their first five studio albums prior to that infamous plane crash. If, like me, you have a stack of original but well-worn vinyl LP's and you don't want to replace everything on expensive LP or CD re-issues, this compilation actually gives you most of the songs from those classic albums. If you only know "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama" and just want an introduction to the band, this compilation is an excellent way to start. The good people at EMP have this box set at a fantastic price -better even than anything you could find in a supermarket, a petrol station or those market stalls full of CD box sets like this. So, why have I only given this set four stars? Leaving aside the "no-frills" aspect of it, it's because I think it's a shame that it doesn't include the anthem, "Gimme Back My Bullets" or the well-loved ballad, "Tuesday's Gone". If you can live without those two songs (or you have them on another compilation CD, as I do!) then this is worth five stars because Lynyrd Skynyrd truly were a great band in their 1970's heyday.
