Question "What song is it you want to hear?"

if u thought this was going to be a musical request thread, please go back to watching MTV and figuring out new ways of speaking english

a couple of years ago a friend of mine played me a version of 'Free Bird', the very thought of which still moves me close to tears (as i noticed on the highway this morning while listening to an old 'live' version)
the version i'm talking about was recorded after the plane crash that claimed the lead vocalist (among others)
the band eventually reformed and, if i have my band biog info right, his brother replaced him on vocals
the version my friend played me was a live recording and u can hear the crowd getting the (Free Bird!, Free Bird!) chant going
the vocalist does the time honoured thing and asks "What song is it you want to hear?"
they tell him
as the intro starts up under his voice (to a rapturous response from the audience), he tells them that there was only one man who could sing that song and that he was no longer with us but that the band would play the song and the audience could sing
which they do
word for word
for the next 12 minutes
call me an old sap, but that works for me
i can't think of a kewler tribute

thing is, i've lost contact with the guy who played me this version
(his name is Gerald Priestly and i know he's in the UK somewhere, just in case)
i have no info about it and prelim Googles haven't helped much
so i thought i'd come and ask here

does anyone here know of this recording?
does anyone here have this recording?
can u give me a catalogue number for the recording so i can order it from here?

send word
