One More from the Road

One More from the Road (Styled as "One More For From The Road") is a live album by Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, capturing three shows recorded in July 1976, at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. Since 1974, Lynyrd Skynyrd had supported rock promoter Alex Cooley so that the Fox Theatre was saved from demolition. This record was the band's first live album, and the only live album from the band's classic era of 1970 to 1977 prior to the plane crash that killed lead singer and songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, and Cassie Gaines. The album was released in September 1976. It was certified gold on October 26, 1976, platinum on December 30, 1976 and 3x platinum on July 21, 1987 by the RIAA.

The original 14 tracks include a cover of Jimmie Rodgers' "T for Texas" and a 13:30 version of "Free Bird".

The first CD release (1986) was a single disc missing two tracks, "T For Texas" and "Travelin' Man", due to time constraints.

The second CD release (1996) was a two disc set with all 14 songs plus three bonus tracks: "Sweet Home Alabama", "Gimme Back My Bullets" and "Simple Man". The two disc set put the tracks in order of the appearance of the original concert.

The deluxe edition, released in 2001, was remastered and contained additional performances from the Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. The bonus tracks are also available separately on a "Rarities Edition".

The live version of "Sweet Home Alabama" from this album was used as a track on the music rhythm video games Guitar Hero World Tour and Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades.
