Gimme Three Steps (Rehearsal) [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded during the Tribute Tour rehearsals in Nashville, TN on 9/3/87. The band was particularly rehearsing for their Volunteer Jam performance that would be three days later. An unsure Johnny Van Zant goes over the first verse of the song several times. There is a pretty funny little argument over whether Ronnie ever said the line "Hey fat fellow with the hair colored yellow" in the song.

When You Got Good Friends (Rehearsal) [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded during Lynyrd Skynyrd's rehearsals for the Tribute Tour on 9/3/87. This song didn't surface until 1987's Legend release, and I don't know if it was ever performed in front of an audience.
Free Bird (Rehearsal) [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]

The Ballad Of Curtis Loew [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded live at The Ritz, New York on 9/6/88. The band cuts this short after Gary's solo and goes directly into Things Goin' On. This is the only version of this song I have with Artimus on drums.

Tuesday's Gone [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded live at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA on 2/19/93. This is actually one of my favorite versions of this song. Johnny sounds a bit rough, but Billy and Gary really shine here. Ed King plays keyboards as well, duplicating the mellotrone from the studio version. Billy's solo is just awesome here.
Things Goin' On (Acoustic) [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded live in Chicago, IL in March of '93. To promote The Last Rebel, Johnny, Gary, and Ed King did a tour of several radio stations, performing songs acoustically. This would lead to 1994's all acoustic Endangered Species album.

Call Me The Breeze (Guitar Jam) [ STREAM ] [DOWNLOAD ] **NEW**
Recorded live in Finland in 1996. This is the end jam the band would play after "Call Me The Breeze" on their 1996 tour. Hughie plays excerpts from "Ghost Riders In The Sky" and "Green Grass and High Tides" (drummer Own Hale joins in on the former) and Rickey plays a little "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" by Jimi Hendrix.

Recorded live at the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland on 10/1/97. 
I Know A Little [ STREAM ] [DOWNLOAD ] **NEW**
Recorded live at the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland on 10/1/97. Notice that Gary plays the intro of "Good Lovin's Hard To Find" during the mini-jam preceding the song. I'd say they most likely did this on the date recorded for Lyve From Steeltown but probably overdubbed it to avoid paying Ed King royalties.
Travelin' Man [ STREAM ] [DOWNLOAD ] **NEW**
Recorded live at the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland on 10/1/97. Notice that Johnny sings the whole song; I guess they didn't bring the video screen to Finland that would allow Ronnie to sing his part.
Edge Of Forever [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded live in Aimes, Iowa on 10/23/99. Here's a trio of Edge Of Forever tunes from this 1999 gig in Iowa.

Sweet Home Alabama [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded live in Atlanta, GA on 9/1/01. Check out Hughie's intro, which sounds to me very much like the intro to "Sign Of The Times" which appeared only on the Japanese import of Twenty. I guess Hughie never was one to leave good ideas unused.
The Way [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded live in Las Vegas, NV on 8/10/02. Skynyrd opened their their spring/summer 2002 tour with this new song, from their forthcoming album Vicious Cycle. Skynyrd also played another new song, "Funked Up", earlier in the tour but it had been dropped by this time.
Mississippi Kid [ STREAM ] [ DOWNLOAD ]
Recorded live in Las Vegas, NV on 8/10/02. As far as I know, this tour marked the first time Skynyrd played this song live. Hughie plays acoustic, Rickey plays mandolin, and Gary plays Ed's slide part on a Fender Strat (another first). Earlier in the tour Skynyrd also played "Lend A Helpin' Hand", "Honky Tonk Night Time Man" and (as part of the medley) "Roll Gypsy Roll".
