Scoop’s Vinyl Oddities: Lynyrd Skynyrd ‘Street Survivors’
Skynyrd 4

Perhaps you have this one?

This is the ‘flames’ cover that was retracted after Skynyrd’s tragic plane crash in October of 1977 and replaced with a picture of the band against a black background. A nice copy of this with the flames on the cover can still be acquired for a reasonable price of about $15 to $30, so beware of unscrupulous merchants attempting to cash in on the legend and trying to get a much higher price. Comparison shop for awhile and you’ll be able to find a good quality copy at a fair price.

In my opinion this is one of the band’s finest moments, but I’m also that guy who still screams for ‘Freebird’. I eagerly await the documentary that Artimus Pyle is co-writing about the band’s rise, and ultimately that fateful day in a Mississippi swamp that claimed 6 lives. The songs written and created by Lynyrd Skynyrd still stand as some of the finest ever created by any American rock band, and Ronnie Van Zant will always be a hero to me.
