Then and Now, Vol. 2

Then and Now, Vol. 2

by Lynyrd Skynyrd

CD

Overview

This second edition in Sanctuary's reissue series takes the highlights from Skynyrd's 2004 Lyve: The Vicious Cycle Tour live record, 1997's Twenty, and 2003's excellent Vicious Cycle release and puts them on one disc. The sequencing between the live and studio recordings is a bit erratic and tends be distracting at points, but that's a minor complaint in a disc chock-full of outstanding performances. To hear Skynyrd backed by a full horn section and string section is breathtaking, especially during the arrangement of "Tuesday's Gone," which takes the anthemic qualities of the song to entirely new levels. For diehards who missed out on the last few records -- and even for fans who strayed away for a bit and are wondering what the band's been up to -- this is an excellent compilation at a reasonable price.
