Live From Freedom Hall
Released: Jun 2010
Label: Roadrunner Records/Loud & Proud
Recorded at the Freedom Hall in Louisville, Ky., this live set is the companion piece to the DVD of the same name. Skynyrd are captured doing what they've been doing since the last ice age: celebratory Southern rock for the Rebel inside all of us. This show is notable because it's the last recording to feature keyboardist Billy Powell and bass player Ean Evans, both of whom passed away in 2009. With a background in classical music, Powell actually started off as the group's roadie but was added to the lineup when Ronnie Van Zant overheard him tickling the ivories after a concert in 1972.
