352 – Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird (1973)
Written by Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant
Produced by Al Kooper
Label – MCA
Obviously inspired by Duane Allman, Ronnie Van Zant and co. developed their Southern rock sound with a soaring triple guitar onslaught that’s highlighted in this epic from their debut LP. Indulgent it may be, but for anyone who loves a climax of enduring instrumental wizardry this is as glorious as it gets.
