Rossington Collins Band - A Night On The Road

The Rossington-Collins Band was founded in 1979 by ex-Lynyrd Skynyrd members, released two albums and dissolved in 1982 . They were a strong live act with the curiosity of having a female singer, Dale Krantz, who had been doing backing vocals for 38 Special.
This is a Pre-FM radio show with short interview clips and the live parts were recorded at the Garden State Art Center in Holmdel, NJ, sometime around 1981. Their performance of Free Bird was always instrumental in memory of Ronnie Van Zant.

This one looks really good, I have the 2 CD BGO Rossington Collins Bans and wanted to see what they sounded like live. Thanks!

I believe you won't be disappointed.

Turns out a friend of mine did this. It was made from a cassette tape of the vinyl that's why the last track is patched, the tape ran out. That is his artwork and his label, Backdoor.

Thanks for the information, I don't remember where I got it but it was probably on Dime or TTD.

I was at that concert at the Garden State Arts Center in New Jersey. Want to say it was late summer. Very cool, and Freedbird at end was tough to hear.
