With the Kings of Leon, Kid Rock and Oz cousins Jet taking on the mantle of southern rock, it's about time the likes of the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd got their due respect.
For great guitar playing check out The Ballard of Curtis Loey on CD1. But it's CD2 which ups the ante. It's time to kick some ass in Tenessee!' is the rallying call and puts all the wannabes in their place. Sweet Home Alabama, The Way and Freebird are sensibly left until the end. It's living and breathing music big hearted enough to let everyone share.
