38 Special
"Special Forces" (Vinyl)

Continuing through the stack of vinyl I found last week...

A band I know nothing of beyond their name, but I vaguely associate with Skynyrd. Which turns out to be acceptable, since Donnie Van Zant is the lead singer of 38 Special and his brother Ronnie was the original singer for Lynyrd Skynyrd before his untimely death in an airplane crash.

This album doesn't contain any music that I know personally.  There's a persistent vein of southern-fried rock throughout the album, even though this is supposed to have been released (in 1982) during the group's mass-appeal arena rock era.

I don't think this will be a keeper...
