Digitally remastered by Doug Schwartz. Whether you take the title ALL TIME GREATEST HITS literally or not, it's hard to dispute that, give or take a couple of Allman Brothers albums, this is pretty much the high-water mark for '70s Southern rock. All the group's crowd pleasers are included, and, as always, it's hard not to be impressed both by their three-guitar-army attack and by the range of the late Ronnie Van Zant's songwriting. Along with de rigeur cautionary anti-drug songs and tales of groupie encounters such as "That Smell" and "What's Your Name" respectively, Van Zant also deals with regional pride and arrogant pop stars in "Sweet Home Alabama," and gun control in the extremely-gutsy-for-the-time "Saturday Night Special." Motherhood is also embraced, in the even gutsier "Simple Man." The album includes Skynyrd's joyous cover of J.J. Cale's "Call Me the Breeze," plus of course the Southern rock anthem "Free Bird." All in all there's not a dud in the bunch

Dazed and confused : the film soundtrack everyone will be talking about( Recording )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Linklater's DAZED AND CONFUSED takes place on the last day of classes at a Texas high school, in 1976. Consequently, the accompanying soundtrack is a primer in '70s rock, the very same stuff you would have heard blasting out of the radio in any suburban 7-11 parking lot. Sturdy rock war-horses like Rick Derringer's "Rock And Roll, Hoochie Koo" and ZZ Top's "Tush" are found alongside the glam of Sweet's "Fox On The Run" and The Runaways' "Cherry Bomb." The tastiest of the soundtrack's nuggets is Black Oak Arkansas' too-easily-forgotten cover of LaVern Baker's "Jim Dandy." And the album closes with a sweep through the dungeons of prime Seventies hard rock--classic tracks by Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Kiss and Alice Cooper. Incidentally, if DAZED AND CONFUSED only whets your appetite for the music of the lava lamp and pet rock era of American pop culture, EVEN MORE DAZED AND CONFUSED makes a perfect companion album, featuring such 70s mainstays as the Edgar Winter Group, Foghat and Peter Frampton
