The South Rises Again: Bluesy, Hard-Rocking 1973 Debut Raised Southern Rock Flag

Landmark Release Includes Ageless Free Bird, Tuesdays Gone, Gimme Three Steps, Simple Man

Rawness Never Felt So Real: Mobile Fidelity LP Affords Triple-Guitar Array, Gritty Lead Vocals Plentiful Space and Rich Tonalities

Forget, for a moment, Free Bird. Consider, instead, the authentic down-home rowdiness, distinctive first-person narratives, searing triple-guitar front, gritty vocals, and bluesy boogie bluster. And the undeniable youthful hunger pumping through the subtly witty songs, all strongly rooted in Southern heritage and working-class values. Independent of the most-requested tune in history, Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd bleeds red, white, and blue and encapsulates the wondrous dichotomies of Southern rock.

Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelitys vinyl edition of the Floridian groups ground-shaking debut is the equivalent of having access to the bands amplifiers and producer Al Koopers control boards in the studio. Affording palpable spaciousness to each of the instruments, expanding the dynamic range, and clearing away previous tonal congestion, this version presents the septets raw, honest tunes in the most direct, hard-hitting sound theyve ever enjoyed. It lays waste to all prior reissuesnone of which on LP went back to the master tapes.

Months before Lynyrd Skynyrd enjoyed the privilege of recording its debut, the band entered its seventh year of playing juke joints and assorted dives in a bootstraps effort to land a deal. During a residency at a hardscrabble Georgian club, the groups rambunctious rock, swaggering attitude, blue-collar determination, and country-reared cadence caught the ear of producer/musician Al Kooper. The rest is history. Kooper inked the ensemble to his new imprint and hustled everyone into a Georgia studio for sessions that occurred March through April 1973.

Its at the Studio One space that Lynyrd Skynyrd flashed scampering tempos, cutting give-and-take riffs, loose barroom lines, and off-the-cuff vocalese that entirely separated its approach from that of the more jazz-styled affairs of the Allman Brothers Band. Confederate flags, empty whiskey bottles, cocked pistols, rotgut habits, scorned women, and prodigal drifters populate the songs, nearly all written from first-person perspectives that add to their genuineness. Prophetic touchestwinkling piano notes, soaring mellotrons, a one-off harmonicaprovide ideal complements to the intertwined guitar melodies and singer Ronnie Van Zants comfortable gruffness and way of expressing local customs.

Whether its the thems-fightin-words edginess of the humorous albeit entirely believable Southern-etched yarn Gimme Three Steps, which sails on a triple mast of six-string exchanges and clicks heels to a trotting percussive beat that doubles as the sound of cowboy-boot heels, or the spiritual pleas and lived-in wisdom echoed on the barbed-wire balladry of Simple Man, Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd burns with forthright and freewheeling desire, rebellious and sincere earnestness. Seen from either a lyrical, musical, or performance perspective, theres not a wasted second or awkward moment to be found.

Then, of course, theres the sugary drip of Van Zants political ragtime-referencing affair Things Goin On, bluegrass-tinted swing of Mississippi Kid, and swampy get-go of Poison Whiskey. They all lead up to the epic Free Bird, a greasy slide-guitar anthem that no matter how many times its played or requested in jest, never loses its power to grip the listeners emotions like an iron vice. What a record.

SoundStageDirect Glossary

VINYL RECORDS

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.

VINYL REISSUES

Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
