Like any record company worth their salt, MCA knows a good gimmick when they see it, and when the millennium came around — well, the 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection wasn't too far behind. Supposedly, the millennium is a momentous occasion, but it's hard to feel that way when it's used as another excuse to turn out a budget-line series. But apart from the presumptuous title, 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection turns out to be a very good budget-line series. True, it's impossible for any of these brief collections to be definitive, but they're nevertheless solid samplers that don't feature a bad song in the bunch. For example, take Lynyrd Skynyrd's 20th Century volume — it's an irresistible ten-song summary of their MCA years. There may be a couple of noteworthy songs missing, but many of their best-known songs are here, including "Sweet Home Alabama," "What's Your Name," "Gimme Three Steps," "You Got That Right," "Saturday Night Special," "That Smell," and "Free Bird." Serious fans will want something more extensive, but this is an excellent introduction for neophytes and a great sampler for casual fans, considering its length and price. That doesn't erase the ridiculousness of the series title, but the silliness is excusable when the music and the collections are good.
All of Skynrds greats!
This Album ( although not a true lynyrd skynyrd album) 20th century masters made a great colaboration of all of lynyrd skynyrds greatest songs everything from the epic Freeird to thier arguably greatest song sweet home alabama. Skynyrds unique southern rock is sure to be a hit where ever you go! This is a great album for any classic rock lover.
Great Music = Great CD
Its easy to see why Lynyrd Skynyrd is a Southern Rock commodity with classics like Sweet Home Alabama, Free Bird, ect. If you enjoy classic rock and dont have some of their music, then you have to buy something. A band this skilled in music only comes around once every two blue moons. So buy something of them, whether this cd or another. P.S. I concur that iTunes needs AC/DC, Led Zep, and a few others to say they have a great collection of music, its a shame that they dont, very shameful at that.
Free Bird has some of the best guitar I have ever heard!
