With their sophomore effort, the Rossington-Collins Band pay due homage to Ronnie Van Zandt with the songs "Tashauna" and "Pine Box," and rock with the best of 'em on "Gotta Get It Straight" and "Gonna Miss It When It's Gone. In 1987, the surviving members of Lynyrd Skynyrd performed on a "tribute tour" that led to the re-formation of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Band, debuting on Charlie Daniels' Volunteer Jam in 1987.

Rossington Collins Band were spawned by one of rock music's most well-known tragedies - in October of 1979, two years after the plane crash that killed Lynyrd Skynyrd lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, new guitarist Steve Gaines, and his sister, backup singer Cassie Gaines, surviving members Gary Rossington and Allen Collins (guitars), Leon Wilkeson (bass), and keyboardist Bill Powell decided to tr. music, and he was barely visible as a composer on the group's next album, This Is the Way (which was dedicated to Katy Collins' memory). The album was surprisingly good considering the circumstances behind its recording and release, rising into the Top 30. The group lasted only until the early months of 1982. In its place, Rossington and Krantz, who had married by then, formed the Rossington Band with Hess still on drums, in the mid-'80s.
