Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird (Demo Version)
Lynyrd Skynyrd Free Bird (Demo Version)
Skynyrd's First: The Complete Muscle Shoals Album UMG 1998
Early recording from 1971-72. At that point LS was a promising live band but had no idea what they were doing, technically speaking. β€œWe went in there and they said, β€˜Don't you know the bass and drums are supposed to play together?’” Van Zant told John Swenson, writing for Crawdaddy! in 1975, of the Muscle Shoals sessions. β€œWe didn’t even know how to count time to songs β€” we had just two speeds: slow and fast.” "The lyrics are a matter of interpretation. Ronnie Van Zant’s reading was poetical. Birds were the freest thing of all, and freedom was what this country was all about. Those are his words, not mine, from an interview Van Zant conducted while fishing in a trucker hat, because this was Lynyrd Skynyrd, and there was going to be an interview on a boat talking about America at one point." -Spencer Hall

Of the various Leonard Cohen covers, this one was probably the funkiest.

Streaming is not functioning for tuning into the nice show of bird songs! Boo! Chirp! Hiss! Tweet!

We noticed too! Setting the playlist to auto-unroll in case terrestrial listeners are getting it, but filing a report with the relevant authorities

You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on.
DJ Scope Creep (host) 3:02:18 AM
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again.
DJ Scope Creep (host) 3:02:41 AM
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting - over and over announcing your place in the family of things.
