New life given to an old favourite. One of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s most famous songs, “Simple Man” is stripped down to isolated vocals which exposes the purity and legendary vocal range of Ronnie Van Zant. Without the backing track, the true beauty of Ronnie’s vocals throw the listener into a perpetual cycle of mourning loss, pain and then finally the acceptance of closure.

The isolated track allows the listener to truly experience the pain and agony both Ronnie and Gary Rossington went through when their grandmothers passed onwhich led to the lyrical formation of this timeless ballad.
