Lynyrd Skynyrd - 1976 Knebworth Fair Festival, England

I will always remember the day I heard the news about Ronnie Van Zant and the plane crash. I also had the luck to speak with Dick Cooper, who was Skynryd's manager, about his memories of the band, also found on this site. This band seemed to play and fight at the same time--and sometimes, both and not sure of which was more fun. Dedicated to a large family of Southern friends, especially the Bulldog and the Buffalo.

Nektar - Remember the Future in British Prog (1973)

Still keeping it a bit spacey here: Remember the Future is the fourth album from English progressive rock band Nektar. It is a concept album featuring one song divided into two parts. On the original LP, each side contained one of the two parts. Dedicated to the late Roye Albrighton, guitars and lead vocals.
