Nuthin' Fancy review

Nuthin' Fancy review

Nuthin' Fancy is Lynyrd Skynyrd's third album. Their first two records are super, so to exceed their early success would be quite a feat. Nuthin' Fancy is not quite up to the same level, but it is quite good. This album certainly shows a bit more diversity to their sound and songwriting than their previous albums. For example, the track "Made in the Shade" is their attempt at bluegrass, and it is quite successful; complete with mandolin, dobro, harmonica, and even some yodeling. The track "Am I Losin'" has a tone reminiscent of many great classic sounds. Overall, the song is heavily influenced by Marshall Tucker's classic "Can't You See." The guitar solo is signature Allman Brothers style that segues into a brief "Sweet Home Alabama" riff, that leads back into the vocals; a good song indeed. Then we have some good classic rock 'n roll served Skynyrd style with tracks like "Saturday Night Special" and "On the Hunt." Both of these tracks have excellent bass holding the foundation of the song, while perfectly setting up the guitar solos.

Lynyrd Skynyrd's third album Nuthin' Fancy has much to like. There are two live bonus tracks on the remastered release. by Barry Small
