Overview

Lyve from Steel Town [CD/DVD]

Lyve from Steel Town captures a July 15, 1997, concert given in a suburb of Pittsburgh that was originally released on DVD in 1999. Roughly eight years later, the home video was released as a CD that lacked five songs that were on the video, but their absence isn't that big of a deal since in this CD incarnation Lyve from Steel Town is a lean rock & roll album that stands as a good testament to the strength of the reunited Skynyrd. While it's still true that lovers of the classic original lineup will remain unconvinced that anybody could replace Ronnie Van Zant -- or the kinetic kick of drummer Artimus Pyle for that matter -- this is a tight, professional set that finds this latter-day Skynyrd in fine form, driving through such standards as "What's Your Name," "You Got That Right," "That Smell," and "Gimme Three Steps." For the diehards who appreciate the idea of this reunited lineup carrying the torch left from the classic lineup, Lyve from Steel Town is an entertaining listen, capturing this latter-day incarnation at something close to a peak -- which of course isn't the same thing as the original band at its peak, but for those who realize the difference and love the band anyway, this is certainly worthwhile.
