Lynyrd Skynyrd: Rainbow Theatre, London

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 21 December 1974

I DOUBT very much whether Lynyrd Skynyrd, those Southern rock and rollers who take the stage to the strains of a tape of 'Dixie', could have wished for a better Christmas present this year. It was a little early maybe, but a full house at London's Rainbow on their first ever visit to the UK ought to be enough to satisfy any relatively unknown American band.

Total word count of piece: 465
