Also do a search on "WLYT" in the EC solo forum. There's a part in the interview (can't remember which of the three sections) where young EC explains the reasons and says that he "has no adversity" towards playing the bass (I'm sure he meant to say "aversion").

So, my memory was correct. Eric and Dave switched guitar parts between the 1st and 2nd albums. Also, Eric said that it's easier to sing lead playing rhythm guitar because rhythm guitar more closely follows the melody. Bass lines can be all over the place.
