Lynyrd Skynyrd- Sweet Home Alabama- Memphis 10-30-73

From the In the Studio archive, here is Lynyrd Skynyrd’s earliest known recording of “Sweet Home Alabama” before a live Ardent Studio audience in Memphis October 30, 1973. Note that nobody claps in recognition during the opening guitar lick, because the song would not be released until almost six months later on Second Helping. This was undoubtedly the last time that would ever happen! – Redbeard
