Under the Influence: A Jam Band Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd

Under the Influence: A Jam Band Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd


1 New & Used Starting at $6.35


Lynyrd Skynyrd might not be the hippest name to drop in some circles, but chances are, if you scratch the surface of any band that's powered by guitar, you'll find at least a trace of the southern rock pioneers in that DNA. This 11-track tribute set bears that out from top to bottom, with devotees taking on tunes both iconic and semi-obscure. Some, like the North Mississippi Allstars, who dig into the brawling "Whiskey Rock a Roller," focus on the full-tilt-boogie aspect of the Skynyrd legacy, while acts like Gov't Mule -- responsible for a steely "Simple Man" -- take on the blues-busting side of things. Several bands take pains to put their own imprint on the tunes, from the Disco Biscuits' space-funk retooling of "Gimme Three Steps" to the Yonder Mountain String Band's hoedown-ready "Four Walls of Raiford." And, having heard those shouts from the audience for decades, the folks who compiled the disc couldn't help but include "Free Bird" -- and Blues Traveler prove themselves up to the task of taking on the ultimate southern rock anthem. Perfect for heads-down, no-nonsense partying -- and you don't even need to be a southern man to appreciate it.

I love Skynyrd and I love Most of these bands so I gotthis right away. Great record from a genre of music you wouldnt think makes total sense for a Skynyrd Tribute album but does. I really Loved the Les Claypool take on "Call Me The Breeze" The Blues Traveler's Freebird was notthe best but its hard to touch something as classic and ectched in everyones minds as that song. Good buy.
