Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Southern Surroundings’ CD/DVD Set Coming to Walmart
This week (Tuesday, Aug. 7), Lynyrd Skynyrd fans are in for a special treat with a new CD/DVD set titled 'Southern Surroundings,' exclusively hitting Walmart shelves nationwide.
The three-disc deluxe compilation will include a CD featuring 14 of the band’s greatest hits, such as 'Sweet Home Alabama,' 'Saturday Night Special,' 'That Smell' and a live version of 'Free Bird.'
Also included will be a seven-track DVD-Video from a live performance on BBC’s Old Grey Whistle Test, and a 10-song DVD-Audio/Video filled with 10 classic songs newly mixed in 5.1 surround sound by Grammy-winning producer Elliott Scheiner.
The BBC DVD features live performances of 'Double Trouble,' 'I Ain’t the One,' 'Call Me the Breeze,' 'I Got the Same Old Blues,' 'Every Mother’s Son,' 'Sweet Home Alabama' and 'Free Bird,' from Nov. 11, 1975.
The DVD-Audio/Video disc showcases -- in 96kHz/24-bit uncompressed and 48kHz/24-bit Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound -- ”Saturday Night Special,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “Swamp Music,” “Gimme Back My Bullets,” “The Ballad Of Curtis Loew,” “You Got That Right,” “That Smell,” “All I Can Do Is Write About It,” “Simple Man” and “Free Bird” (the complete, 10+ minute extended version).
And as if that wasn't enough to keep fans satisfied, the band will release a brand new studio album, 'Last of a Dyin' Breed,' on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records on Tuesday, Aug. 21. The album marks the first release of new material from Skynyrd since September of 2009, when they released their Top 20 album 'God & Guns.' The band is currently touring North America and will be on the road throughout 2012 in support of the new album.
