Lynyrd Skynyrd “Freebird” 7/2/1977

Nearly  months before the infamous plane crash that killed several members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, they recorded their performance at Oakland Coliseum, including the iconic “Freebird”.  For 1977, the video and audio are surprisingly high quality, and the filmmakers captured the scene from band to fan wonderfully. 41 years later, this performance, like the song itself, more than stands the test of time.

You can buy or stream “Freebird” anywhere you ingest your digital music, and you can watch more performances from Oakland in 1977 at the Official Lynyrd Skynyrd Youtube channel.
