Album Review

When the plane carrying Lynyrd Skynyrd went down, it was the day the music died for many Southern rock fans. Ronnie VanZant, the guiding light of Skynyrd, was gone, as was guitarist Steve Gaines — both taken at the peak of the band's popularity. And while a Skynyrd demo collection was rushed out in 1978, the Rossington Collins Band essentially provided the final chapter in the original Lynyrd Skynyrd story. Along with new singer Dale Krantz, four of the surviving members — guitarists Gary Rossington and Allen Collins along with keyboard player Billy Powell and bassist Leon Wilkeson — regrouped and recorded two albums, 1980's Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere and This Is the Way, released in 1982. The ongoing MCA series 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection collects the best tracks from those two albums plus a few tracks from itinerant projects from Rossington and Collins later in the decade. Their most popular tracks are here, "Prime Time" and "Don't Misunderstand Me," but it's "Tashauna" — a tribute to VanZant — that remains the most resonant moment for the band. Hardcore fans will certainly search out the full albums, but for anyone wondering what happened to these Skynyrd vets after the tragic turns of their late-'70s demise (and before their re-emergence in the '90s), this is a great place to start.

Customer Reviews

Some Southern Comfort

A nice compilation that reflects the survivors post Skynyrd recordings. The sound of Powell's piano, Collins "Cream" feel guitar work and Rossington's hauntings leads were comfort to us fans devastated by the crash and the loss Skynyrds heart and soul (Van Zant). Krantz's vocals are amazing and it is a shame she has been relegated to backing vocals w/ Skynyrd. Her and Sass Jordan are the most talented yet under appreciated female vocalist around.

5 Stars Is Not Enough!!

Wow, I haven't listened to Rossington Collins Band in YEARS!!!! I saw this CD listed on the home page here on ITunes and clicked right on it. "Don't Misunderstand Me" is one of the best songs ever sung by a female! Dale Krantz has THE best pipes on a woman that I have ever heard, I remember seeing the Rossington Collins Band way, way, back in the day at the Utica Memorial Auditorium in Utica, NY and they kicked butt!! I just looked at the old ticket stub, 38 Special opened up for RC Band, and the ticket was $8.50, boy, those were the days !! What great memories this brings back. I'm going to download at least 4 of the songs from this CD.


This C.D. has some great songs on ti. The bass is awsome and so are the guitars.
