A good number of the bands contained on this playlist are mentioned in "The South's Gonna Do It Again" and "Gator Country." While pride is expressed for the entire Southeast region in the former and for Florida specifically in the latter, both are a testament to the familial feel behind this collection of groups. This can also be heard in the special dedications given to Duane and Berry (before "Freebird") and to Ronnie, Cassie and Steve (before "Dixie Rock"), and in the fact that Jimmy Hall and/or Chuck Leavell show up on about half of the tracks contained here.
More of a collection of Southern Rock "jam-bands," almost all the tunes are guitar-centered (with fiddle or slide guitar making noticeable appearances), based on a country feel and blues progressions, and liable to take off on solos for a while to get people up and dancing. This is true whether the songs are uncomplicated odes to one's home state (Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet); innocent, good-time rockers (Wet Willie, BHLT, and Sea Level); more complicated reflections on love (tracks 7-11); or songs about not having anything weighing you down ("Freeborn Man" and, forgive us, "Freebird").
