This comprehensive three-disc, 47-song anthology provides a near-perfect career retrospective to the ultimate Southern rock institution, Lynyrd Skynyrd. The box includes a carefully researched booklet with meticulous historical essays and rare photos for the new and rabid fan alike. The latter will probably be most interested in Disc One, which features a number of early demos dating back as early as 1970 and not featured in prior collections, as well as an embryonic demo of –Freebird" minus its extended-jam coda. The nine-minute version from the band's milestone debut, Pronounced is also featured here, of course, as is most of the material from the group's next album, Second Helping. Disc Two alone could serve as a greatest-hits set, as classic after classic is rattled off in mind-blowing succession. The first half of Disc Three alternates never-before-heard concert performances with other, equally inspired live versions. Its second half is dominated by the unintentional swan song Street Survivors. Released only three days before the fateful plane crash, the album saw a re-energized Skynyrd achieving a new level of maturity, power, and purpose.
