In 1976, Lynyrd Skynyrd played a memorable set at Knebworth, sharing a bill at the British festival with The Rolling Stones, Todd Rundgren’s Utopia and 10cc, among others.

Some of the footage of Skynyrd’s set was included in 1996′s “Freebird…The Movie.” But on April 9, the full show will be available on CD, DVD/Blu-ray, as a double LP with DVD and digital video. The release is available for pre-order now.
