Eagle Rock EntertainmentIn early April of this year, Lynyrd Skynyrd played a pair of special hometown concerts in Jacksonville, Florida, at which the band gave full performances of their first two albums — 1973’s Pronounced ‘Leh-‘nérd ‘Skin’nérd and 1974’s Second Helping. The shows were recorded for a new live video that will be released October 23 in multiple formats.

Pronounced ‘Leh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd & Second Helping — Live from Jacksonville at the Florida Theatre will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and as a digital download at a wide variety of retail outlets and online stores. In addition, an exclusive DVD/two-CD set will be sold only at Walmart stores and Walmart.com.

The concerts, which took place April 2 and 3, marked the first time the Southern rock legends had ever performed the albums in their entirety live. Pronounced ‘Leh-‘nérd ‘Skin’nérd features such Lynyrd Skynyrd classics as “Tuesday’s Gone,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “Simple Man” and “Free Bird.” Second Helping includes the band’s biggest hit and signature tune, “Sweet Home Alabama,” as well as such memorable songs as “Don’t Ask Me No Questions,” “The Ballad of Curtis Loew” and the group’s rendtion of J.J. Cale‘s “Call Me the Breeze.” Meanwhile, a number of the lesser-known tunes from the albums had rarely, if ever, been played live by Lynyrd Skynyrd prior to the Jacksonville shows.

The home video also offers a specially created behind-the-scenes feature on the band. You can check out a clip from the video of Lynyrd Skynyrd performing “Gimme Three Steps” at Eagle Rock’s official YouTube channel.
