One of Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time"!

More rock than Little Feat, but with a similar Southern boogie feel and absolute top-notch musicianship. Al Kooper produced this record, which explains the sensitive use of strings and piano. Although tracks such as "I Ain't The One," "Simple Man" and "Tuesday's Gone" are outstanding, the one to wait for is "Free Bird," a song that rivals "Stairway To Heaven" for hard rock credibility. The nine-minute epic starts with organ and slide and builds in a similar way, but at 4:44 it changes into fifth gear and the air guitars are out in force.

DSD Release varies from Very Respectable to WOW!

Some albums just will never be "Reference Material", no matter how many times they're remastered. Take Skynyrd's debut: with a six-piece band (Leon had temporarily left the group) and multiple keyboards and twinned guitar leads, you can rest assured that distinct tracks were bounced together on the multitrack tapes to make room for further overdubs (just _how_ many guitars appear in the last few bars of Free Hand before the early fade?), thus adding generations before even mixing down to the stereo master. The result? A DSD transfer that closely simulates a pristine analogue LP, stopping short of producing the "sparkle" and "snap" much lauded and revered... until one gets to "Mississippi Kid". WOW! This all-acoustic blues number catches the ear like a good DSD file should, with acoustic guitar, slide, mandolin and harmonica all shining brightly. The entire album is quite easy on the ears, and has all of the excitement of an audiophile analogue pressing. Oh, and "Free Bird." :)
