yea. collins' famous solo is from freebird, but he didn't play much else. most were played by ed king.
Actually, most of the solos were played by Gary Rossington. Allen would play rhythm on most songs in the early days of the band. The only reason why the Free Bird Solo is so long is because Gary let Allen play lead for once and Gary playe rhythm. So Allen eventually made Free Bird the jam that it was.
Some of the Songs off of Who Are You are pretty good. Some of the Songs off of Face Dances and It's Hard are pretty interesting, and the Who By Numbers is not that great, so you make the decision. And Note, Face Dances was the first Who Album without Keith Moons behind the drumset
Notable Songs from the Albums from 75-82
Slip Kid-The Who By Numbers Squeeze Box- The Who By Numbers Who Are You- Who Are You Music Must Change-Who Are You Sister Disco-Who Are You You Better You Bet- Face Dances Another Tricky Day-Face Dances Athena-It's Hard Eminence Front- It's Hard
My personal two favorites from that list are Who Are You and Eminence Front.
My battle Axe is a brand new Fender American Strat Deluxe. It is so nice. Aside from the buttery smoothe neck and the abalone dot inlays, it has a set of 3 Subamarian-Cobalt Nickel noiseless pickups. It also has a set of six Schaller Locking tuners. One really cool feature is the S-1 switching system, which allows me to make 5 more different tones. It features a rosewood fretboard and the body has a 3-tone sunburst finish. I love this guitar. If I can figure out how to put up pictures, I might put up a picture of it.
