(Kayos) Eagle Vision will release Lynyrd Skynyrd Sweet Home Alabama: The Rockpalast Collection on DVD October 28. The complete 14-song concert from June 23, 1996 features the band in top form led by Johnny Van Zant at Rockpalast's Loreley Festival, one of Europe's premiere events.

As a very special bonus, three songs from 1974 featuring original Skynyrd singer/songwriter/guitarist, the late Ronnie Van Zant, as well as Bob Burns on drums, from The Hamburg Musikhalle in Germany are included ("Working For MCA," "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama.") The 1996 concert and the three bonus songs from 1974 have never before been released on DVD.

It was on October 20, 1977, after four years of national success where the band gained a reputation for being one of the best live bands in America, that their chartered airplane developed mechanical difficulties near the end of a flight from South Carolina to Louisiana, ultimately crash-landing in Mississippi. The crash killed band founder/leader Van Zant, guitarist/vocalist Steve Gaines, back-up singer Cassie Gaines, assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick and both pilots. Survivors included drummer Artimus Pyle, guitarist Allen Collins (1952-1990), bassist Leon Wilkeson (1952-2001) and guitarist Gary Rossington.

Today, the band consists of Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, Billy Powell, Ean Evans, Rickey Medlocke, Michael Cartellone and Mark Matejka. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into The Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame in 2006.
