Before Lynyrd Skynyrd, the British ruled the rock scene — but when bands America emerged, and we’re not talking about rock and roll legends Aerosmith, but the rock band from the south — the Southern Rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd. In 1973, the new kid in town released one of the greatest Southern Rock albums, Pronounced Leh’-nerd Skin-‘nerd. Here’s our Track-By-Track Guide To Pronounced Leh’-nerd Skin-‘nerd by Lynyrd Skynyrd
1. I Ain’t the One (3:53)
The stomping drum beat turns this into a classic — and a kick-ass hard-rocking song. The vocals are aggressive, the guitar riffs were undeniably new and they chime with the sweet lead guitar playing throughout the track.
2. Tuesday’s Gone (7:32)
The next song is one of the well-known songs from this album. Tuesday’s Gone is one of the ballads from the album and arguably the best track from the album – with simple lyrics and yet so effective even to date.
3. Gimme Three Steps (4:30)
The two guitarists lay showcasing what they are capable of — by laying down one groovy riff. This is another Lynyrd Skynyrd gem that needs more attention.
4. Simple Man (5:57)
The all-time favorite Lynyrd Skynyrd track where the band showcased their strong will, power, and full energy. It gives you the full treatment and hard edge all throughout the end. This song rocks and all you need to do is listen!
6. Things Goin’ On (4:59)
The track has some interesting lyrics and some nice chicken picking riff. This is where the band pulls off another southern rock classic, and the fans are pleased.
7. Mississippi Kid (3:56)
A neat addition for the album – one flaw though is that it was played mostly by the guys in the studio while the band members themselves were resting. But with this song, you can hear Van Zant sings it with a little southern accent.
8. Poison Whiskey (3:13)
The shortest track on the record but gives you a Hard Rockin experience. This track is probably the most underrated song on the album. It’s a catchy tune and the vocals by Van Zant were done with perfection.
9. Free Bird (9:18)
Well, you won’t experience the full Southern Rock treatment of this album if you won’t listen to the grand finale! Free Bird! Arguably the GREATEST SOUTHERN ROCK SONG EVER CREATED AND RECORDED! Just an amazing and incredible song!
