Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd  -Review

Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd review

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s first album Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd is a fine debut album that has aged well over the years.  Their songwriting was already quite accomplished at this early point of their career.  sound is quite original branding the Southern Rock label by combining blues, country, and rock ‘n roll into their own style. They are often imitated, but never duplicated.

Many of the songs from Pronounced became fan favorites and were stables throughout their career such as “Gimme Three Steps,” "Tuesday's Gone," and “I Ain’t the One.”  A lesser known song “Things Goin’ On” has super New Orleans honky tonk style that showcases Billy Powell’s abilities, as well as Lynyrd Skynyrd's songwriting strength. This track meshes a seemingly country style song, which as it develops is just as much a blues, and even rock song.  A careful listen to the piano solo of their ballad “Tuesday’s Gone” has a hint the classic piano runs that would later be used in “Free Bird,” as heard in their live rendition on One More From the Road. 

 Lynyrd Skynyrd's debut album also includes their classic “Free Bird” that is not only their best song, it is one of rock’s greatest songs.   There is quite a bit to like on the Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd. The remastered release of Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd has five additional tracks. by Barry Small ©
