Dave Davies. The intro solo and the solo at 2:30


And the intro on this one. Still raises chicken skin with me. God bless you Ray and Dave.

Great list but you have 1 error: it was Steve Gaines who played the Strat solos on 'That Smell'. Ed King quit Skynyrd in `75 & 'That Smell' was recorded in `77--no biggee though!

Edit: sorry, this track was posted earlier, although this version has better fidelity.

By the time this was released, I was already on to Metallica/Megadeth/etc etc etc, but, I've always thought this was a nice/tasty solo; good tone, good phrasing, good vibrato.
And I'm not a Clapton fan.(and I still can't figure out what's up with those trench coats...)
