Double Dose of Lynyrd Skynyrd

Two new releases from the classic Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd offer proof that the group's legacy lives on. In addition to helping create the musical template for countless Southern rockers that followed, Skynyrd spawned a number of spinoffs as other groups branched out from various shakeups of the original band. The new Family CD brings together for the first time the biggest hits by Lynyrd Skynyrd as well as "blood-kin" acts .38 Special, the Rossington Collins Band and the new Van Zant duo of brothers Johnny and Donnie. Gimme Back My Bullets originally was released by Lynyrd Skynyrd in l976 and has been expanded to include six bonus tracks and a DVD featuring performances from a 1975 BBC-TV appearance.
