Named one of the band's most haunting songs, "Was I Right Or Wrong" is one of the greatest Lynyrd Skynyrd songs out there.
It may not have generated as much attention as "Sweet Home Alabama" or "Free Bird", but it is still a gem nonetheless. Although it was recorded in 1972, "Was I Right Or Wrong" didn't gain much recognition until its release on the 1978 posthumous compilation album, Skynyrd's First And...Last.
Eventually the album was repackaged and re-released in 1998 as Skynyrd's First: The Complete Muscle Shoals Album, which was expanded to include eight additional tracks. "Was I Right Or Wrong" was featured on both.
"Was I Right Or Wrong" is one of the band's more chilling and hauntingly beautiful songs. The lyrics tell an ominous story of leaving home to pursue your dreams, and coming back to find your family gone.
We uncovered the demo version of "Was I Right Or Wrong" which showcases the raw talent that we miss dearly from the original front man, Ronnie Van Zant. Listening to the recordings he left behind is just one way to carry on his memory.
