AllMusic Review by

Goin' South isn't actually as Southern as its title or marketing suggest; while most of the songs here are pretty compatible musically, only about half of them fall under strict definitions of Southern rock. That said, there really isn't much here that Southern rock fans won't enjoy -- most of it is informed by country and/or blues, and boogies just as hard as the true Southern rock cuts. All the big names are here (Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, .38 Special, the Marshall Tucker Band, the Charlie Daniels Band), and most bands are represented by their biggest hits and/or signature songs. So even if Goin' South isn't the definitive Southern rock collection it wants to be, it's still an excellent listen that could virtually serve as a classic rock radio play list.
