Freebird: The Movie

The tragedy of the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members has overshadowed the fact that Lynyrd Skynyrd were a ferocious live act. The documentary film soundtrack from Freebird: The Movie, taken mostly from three 1976-77 concerts, shows vocalist Ronnie Van Zant in roar and the three guitarists peeling the paint off everything within hearing distance. Proof that there was more to Southern rock than boogie and beer. B+
