Great Accoustic Music from the South

Not usually my speed, but this is a great CD -

In the early-mid '90s, the "unplugged" album was king. Such classic rock artists as Eric Clapton scored huge hits with the acoustic format, and just about every rock act followed in issuing a stripped down and intimate set, including Lynyrd Skynyrd with 1994's ENDANGERED SPECIES. Versions of Skynyrd's classic tunes are featured for the most part, but newer selections round out the collection as well, however it's acoustic versions of "Sweet Home Alabama," "Saturday Night Special," "Down South Jukin'," and "I Ain't the One" that longtime fans will want to hear most. Credit should also go to producer Barry Beckett (a longtime regular at the famed Muscle Shoals recording studio), who helps Skynyrd achieve a sparkling yet warm sound throughout. Recorded at Masterfonics Studio, Nashville, Tennessee.
