Lynyrd Skynyrd: 1976-03-07 San Francisco, CA (Pro Shot DVD)

Here's an excellent recording and performance of Lynyrd Skynyrd in San Francisco at Winterland Ballroom in 1976.  My two favorite songs, because of the guitar playing primarily, are "T For Texas" and "Freebird".  Watching the three guitarists playing off each other as they moved along in the solos is really incredible.  It's some of the most superb guitar work I've heard so far from this band.

When I created this DVD a few years ago, I didn't have the software I really wanted so I just created this with chapters and no menu figuring I'd recreate the DVD later.  But I never have built a new DVD and I'm happy with the sound and way this one came out too.

This is probably my favorite Skynyrd show.  The band plays incredibly well, and in fact, they sound better to me than they do on the 1975 Winterland DVD I also created (like this one).  I believe that they were one of the rare bands that were getting better each year rather than the opposite.

Looking around yesterday, I realized I'd forgotten about some other unreleased DVD concerts of Skynyrd I have too.  At least two of them are in color video also.  However, this show, as well as the 1975 Winterland and 1977 New Jersey shows, was filmed in black and white.  But it's great looking quality black and white too.  Other than one camera angle with a small burned out pixels area, the video seems flawless to me!

As far as lossiness goes, it's lossy!  That's unfortunate.  But it's from the same source as the Journey (and many other) shows at Winterland and that's Wolfgang's Vault.  At this time, they seem to be the only holders of the master, lossless video.  And it's been this way for years and years.  These shows all come from what is commonly called "Bill Graham's Vault" and were filmed at his venues by the cameras set up to professionally shoot shows at Winterland.

I hope you enjoy this free "free concert"...

  2. I'm sorry I am seeing this so much later than it should have taken me to. I see parts 2, 3, and 5 need re-uploading now and they're going into my re-up folder to be uploaded overnight. So a new set of links will be here tomorrow. Thanks for letting me know...
