Bought the Sweet Home Alabama tribute album

Saw the teaser video for the relatively new "Sweet Home Alabama" tribute album on LS's Youtube channel while playing some videos as background music at work today. Bought the CD from Walmart's website in the evening.

(I had heard of it a few months ago when it came out, but hadn't acted upon it)

What I've heard of it is encouraging, and I appreciate people trying to do something besides just a straight-up cover, and the fans are going to be divided with regards to such attempts anyway.

WalMart says I'll get it by the 24th, meaning I could share it with the relative who's supplied me with Skynyrd Frynds and loads of other goodies when we see him for Christmas. :cool:

Probably a good way to get myself listening to more modern-era "real country", as I check out more stuff from the artists I like on this album. I recall that their Skynyrd Frynds cover of Simple Man did get me listening to a bunch of Confederate Railroad tracks, for instance.

Thanks for the tip, Paul - Skynyrd is one of the most underrated classic rock bands. We in Skynyrd Nation know better.

What rock lost in 10/77 was no less than what it lost in 2/59.
