Lynyrd Skynyrd - Street Survivors Click here to see this CD at!

By Rickey Wright

Lynyrd Skynyrd had already fulfilled a good deal of its promise on definitive Southern-rock albums such as Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd and the live One More From the Road when they stepped up their ambition a few more notches for this October 1977 release. Fueled by new member Steve Gaines, the Florida band produced its best album. Gaines, Gary Rossington, and Allen Collins interlocked on guitars as if they'd learned it all in the womb together, while singer Ronnie Van Zant came up with his most evocative lyrics yet. The shadow of death he detected on "That Smell" was closer than perhaps even he thought, however: three days after the record's appearance in stores, he was killed along with five others in a Mississippi crash of the group's tour plane. Street Survivors remains as a classic of American guitar rock.

"Just wanted to find out about the first Street Survivors album that came out right before the crash and the second one that came out afterwards with the blue flames on the cover instead of the orange flames that were on the original. I am 49 yrs. young now and still have the first album with the orange flames and I really treasure that album. [Editor's note: I know why it was changed, but perhaps a fan can share the whole story of the album cover change?]"


""That Smell" is written in reference to two car crashes by band members; including Gary Rossington. Thus it was not fore shadowing to the plane crash off 1977."
