Southern rock fans will love this album by Billy Powell of Lynard Skynard. Billy Powell (Lynyrd Skynyrd) played with Vision after the band signed with Heartland Records for a sophomore self-titled release in 1985. Five tracks from the debut would be completely re-recorded from the ground up, with significant differences in arrangement and production now that they were with a major label. Five other newly penned songs were also recorded, one of which was the anthemic ‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎÌ_??Standing On the Rock‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_? which Heaven‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös Metal Magazine editor Doug Van Pelt would go on to claim was, ‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎÌ_??one of the absolute best Christian rock songs of the era.‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_? Powell's keyboards, which made Skynyrd's sound one of the most distinctive in rock and roll history, help Vision‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös sound resonate with power and authority. Marshall‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös crystal-clear rock voice (a la Steve Perry or Dennis DeYoung) brings clarity to a powerful message that continues to inspire and move people today. Vision put together all the necessities of a truly great rock band, combining elements of art rock with solid guitar-driven stadium rock. Marshall and company created a unique sound all their own that still sounds good 25+ years after it was first recorded! With prime riff-rockers from start to finish, this album is rock perfection. Beyond the tragedy, the history, the raging guitars and the killer songs, ultimately, VISION is about an indomitable will; about survival of spirit; unbowed, uniquely American and stubbornly resolute.
