The Recording is Good but Fake
By Nyck Riegyl
I've been a Skynyrd fan for a long time, and I always watch concerts people tape with their cameras. I want everyone to know one thing about this CD, the recording you hear isn't really what they played. Someone taped this on Youtube, and posted Tuesday's Gone on their channel. I've listened to it a lot, and this version of it on the official CD, it's very different. I don't want to think this, but I think they took the audience noise and re-recorded over the music. It's terrible because the video on Youtube is actually better than the official CD, and you can hear a difference on Free Bird as well. They also made Johnny's voice a little more clean, with a little bit less of that "rumble" that he has. I think this is where Skynyrd is starting to lose it, they edit too much. I'm a little disappointed at this. Don't get me wrong, it's a great CD, but they clearly edited way too much, because they had a great CD without editing.
