Big wheels keep on turning Carry me home to see my kin Singing songs about the Southland I miss Alabamy once again And I think it's a sin, yes.

Sweet Home Alabama" is the biggest hit of American rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, featured on their second album "Second Helping" in 1974. 1 Story behind the song Last. According to David Hood, the tape from the sessions, which included their song "Free Bird," got kinked at some point after it left the studio, and when the band's manager would play it for record companies, it was flipped and sounded terrible. The band wasn't happy with the Muscle Shoals crew at the time, but put aside any hard.
Complete your Lynyrd Skynyrd collection. I've noticed on my copy that the actual running time does not match the tracklist on the cover. The album appears to have been mastered about . % too fast (no it's not my turntable running too fast). I noticed Johnny Van Zant's voice was a bit higher than it should've been. Once I slowed down the audio, the total running time was about 84 minutes, just a bit too long to fit on one CD.
Skynyrd responded with "Sweet Home Alabama," a song about Southern pride and all the good things in Alabama. The feud between Lynyrd Skynyrd and Neil Young was always good-natured fun; they were actually mutual fans. Ronnie Van Zant often wore Neil Young T-shirts onstage and is wearing one on the cover of Street Survivors, the last Skynyrd album released before his death. When we spoke with Rickey Medlocke, a member of the band in their early years who returned to the fold in 1996, he said that Van Zant "loved Neil Young. The country group Alabama did a rendition of this for a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute album. In 2002, this was featured in two movies, one that used the song as the title.

NotesFrom RSD website:
Lynyrd Skynyrd are the ultimate Southern Rock band. Their signature three guitar attack coupled to superb songwriting and massive on stage charisma has rightfully earned them a reputation as one of the greatest live bands of all time. The original band infamously had their career cut short by a disastrous plane crash in 1977 which took the lives of three members plus two of their road crew and seriously injured several others. In 1987 the surviving members reformed the band with Johnny Van Zant taking the place of his brother Ronnie. This concert from 1996 captures the band on top form at Rockpalast’s Loreley Festival on 23 June 1996.
