Thanks in part to a popular Lynyrd Skynyrd edition of VH-1's Behind the Music in the late '90s, the classic southern rock band found themselves in the middle of a career renaissance--with a whole legion of new fans flocking to their concerts and checking out their earlier work. The band couldn't have picked a better time than 1999 to release EDGE OF FOREVER, a new album with their reconstructed line-up. The album shows that band members may come and go, but Skynyrd's solid southern sound will forever remain in tact--as proven by such tough rockers as "Preacher Man," "Workin'," and "Mean Streets."
