I say it is Lynyrd Skynyrd!
Can't argue with facts - but to my untrained British/Scottish ears their music had what I considered a distinctive southern sound - a Muscle Shoals kinda sound if you catch my drift. I am prepared to be educated if I am wide of the mark.Little Feat was a California band. They were formed by ex Zappa Mothers members. CCR was from San Francisco. I'm not a fan of southern rock bands flying Confederate flags so I'll go with the Allman Brothers.
Sorry I was referring to Little Feat.Are you referring to Little Feat or CCR? Little Feat was a great live band. In fact I rarely ever listen to their studio albums. I always spin the Waiting For Columbus live set. But I still don't think of them as Southern Rock. They aren't from the south and they don't have southern accents. Bands from the south would be Marshall Tucker, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, and The Outlaws.
I saw the Outlaws on the same bill as Little Feat June 1976 at Celtic Park Glasgow.I always liked the Outlaws. They were great guitar players and they have more of a country influence to their music. When they played here in Syracuse along time ago, Hughie Thomasson used my buddy's Mesa Boogie amp.
