This 1976 Tom Dowd-produced classic, Gimme Back My Bullets, the fourth studio album from the legendary southern rock band, features the original line-up of Ronnie Van Zant on vocals, lead guitar great Gary Rossington, Allen Collins on guitar, Leon Wilkerson on bass, Billy Powell on piano, and Artemus Pyle on the drums.
What would American southern rock be without the scorching sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd? Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings have already brought you exceptional reissues of Second Helping and Nuthin’ Fancy. Back to the well then, we go, for two more Skynyrd favorites – the epic Gimme Back My Bullets and the band’s bluesy, hard-rocking 1973 debut Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd.
In true fashion, Lynyrd Skynyrd followed up the runaway success of their essential first three albums rebel style with the very hard rockin’ 1976 fan favorite Gimme Back My Bullets. Somewhat of a transitional album, the group’s fourth full-length overall finds Skynyrd replacing band founder and producer Al Kooper with Tom Dowd, boasting a 2-guitar line-up for the first time after the departure of Ed King, and incorporating a female backup vocal group into the mix to boot.
The rugged and grooving nine track effort lives and breathes the rock ‘n’ roll life style and all the spoils and pitfalls that come with it and is filled with Southern fried standards like the hard hitting title cut, anthemic “Double Trouble,” yearning “Searchin” and yet another successful take on a J.J. Cale classic with “I Got The Same Old Blues.”
