Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird


352 – Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird (1973)
Written by Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant
Produced by Al Kooper
Label – MCA

Indulgent it may be, but for anyone who loves a climax of enduring instrumental wizardry this is as glorious as it gets.
