Classic Rock Pick Of The Week – ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ [VIDEO]
‘Sweet Home Alabama.’
What a great song from one of Rock’s best bands.
The tune makes mention of Neil Young, and is an answer to two of his songs, ‘Southern Man’ and ‘Alabama.’
Controversy, commentary and a semi-hidden verse in the song – just under one minute into the song, in the left channel, you can hear the phrase ‘Southern Man’ in reference to Neil Young.
The song was recorded in June of 1973 at Studio One in Doraville, Georgia.
Certified Platinum, ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ peaked at number 8 on the U.S. charts.
Here’s a bit of trivia – Did you know that none of the three writers of the song, Gary Rossington, Ronnie Van Zandt and Ed King are from Alabama?
