Lynyrd Who?

Here’s a rare picture – never published. Ronnie, Allen and Gary – Leeds University, February 14, 1976. Picture courtesy of Peter Cross who attended this show.

There are two versions of the UK ’76 tour programme. The first print run contained an error. The band’s name was incorrectly spelt ‘Lynryd Skynryd’. The photo used on the front of the programme also showed Allen and Gary as left handed guitar players.

Once the calamity came to light, an amended version was hastily rushed out with the spelling and picture sorted. It was sold at venues towards the end of the tour. Both versions pictured below:  the one with the correct spelling, as the rarest, is the most sought-after by memorabilia collectors.
