Southern Rock at Its Finest This massive 32-track collection clocks in at more than two and a half hours of some of the finest Southern rock ever committed to vinyl. It begins and ends with the cornerstones of the genre–Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers. In addition, other Seventies stalwarts such as the Marshall Tucker Band, The Outlaws, The Charlie Daniels Band and Molly Hatchet are represented with their most well known songs.However, it also includes second-generation acts like The Georgia Satellites, The Kentucky Headhunters and Steve Earle from the Eighties. And while some may argue the point, do we really need another anthology with “Sweet Home Alabama” or “Ramblin’ Man”; it’s nice to have these songs all in one collection.But what truly makes this a comprehensive set is the inclusion of lesser known artists like The Arc Angels (featuring Doyle Bramhall II and Charlie Sexton) and Capricorn Records’ all but forgotten Cowboy. Hip-O Records has done a uniformaly excellent job…

PRETTY DARNED COMPLETE!!!! I’m not always one for collection packages… and I must say that as much a fan I am of the Southern Rock craze of the seventies, most miss the horse completely when they put together a compilation of it. Theres a lot of goods out there and most collections are sparse, with like ten tracks or so. Not here. Sure Skynyrd and The Allmans have got loads of great stuff, so you may want to get some full albums by those guys… but it doesn’t hurt to have them here, same goes for Molly Hatchet and The Outlaws,,, but then you got all of these obsurities. Usually it’s hard to find these cuts in a good place where you aren’t barraged mainly with too many bogus cuts or weird eighties songs by bands that at one time may have produced Southern Rock. Or even(ugh) post nine eleven red state music. This two disc package is a solid collection from when Southern Rock was just ace kickin music to kick ace by. All the good rarities, shuffled together with plenty of goods from the elite. If you lookin to…
