Lynyrd Skynyrd Southern Surroundings BDAudioWith excellent Blu-ray Audio titles trickling out, it’s nice to see a collection of great songs come along in the previously released Lynyrd Skynyrd set, Southern Surroundings. Southern Surroundings was an superior set released in 2012, and featured not only the band’s classic big hits in an Elliott Scheiner remix, but also 5.1 Surround Sound tracks on a DVD-Audio disc along with hi-quality Stereo versions (96k/24-bit).

On May 12, Geffen will revisit that collection in an AUDIO ONLY Blu-ray Audio disc. The original contained an added DVD-Video of their Old Grey Whistle Test appearance. (I’m not sure if the audio from that show will be here.) But the fourteen classic tracks, including the 10+ minute extended song of “Free Bird” will be here.

The tracks here are likely the Scheiner tracks. As more details creep in, I’ll update for those that like this bit of news.

The track-list of the original release of Southern Surroundings is:


01: Sweet Home Alabama
02: Gimme Three Steps
03: Simple Man
04: Saturday Night Special
05: Swamp Music
06: The Ballad Of Curtis Loew
07: Call Me The Breeze
08: Comin’ Home
09: Gimme Back My Bullets
10: What’s your Name?
11: You Got That Right
12: All I Can Do Is Write About It (Acoustic Version)

14: Free Bird (Live)
