Before there was Bad Company, before there was The Firm, The Law, or even a Paul Rodgers solo career, there was Free, the soulful hard rock band led by Paul back in the sixties. Utilizing rock-steady drummer Simon Kirke, bass guitar phenom Andy Frasier, and the very lyrical Paul Kossoff, Free released half a dozen great albums, an equal number of singles, and one anthem for the ages before finally dissolving for good in the early 70's. The anthem, of course, is "All Right Now", a four-minute masterpiece of not-so-subtle seduction that has been a staple of classic rock stations for many years. A great number, to be sure, but far from Free's only classic number: "Fire and Water" is the perfect metaphor for many relationships and showcases Rodger's passionate, understated vocals to perfection. "I'll Be Creepin'" features a clever little wah-wah intro by Kossoff, while "The Stealer" is arguably Free's best and certainly most underrated number, with Paul's funky strut offset perfectly by Frasier's fine bass. Paul and Andy have their most memorable duel in the live "Mr Big" (a name later borrowed by a hard rock supergroup of the early 90's), as both artists achieve climax after climax. It's unforgettable!Unfortunately, "Heavy Load," featuring an endless, meandering piano figure, is quite forgettable, thank you. Luckily, that song is the album's only low point. Rodgers has said that Paul Kossoff was the perfect foil for his playing, and tried again and again to get him rehabilitated from the drugs that eventually took his life in 1976. Buy this album, and you will no doubt share his enthusiasm for this master guitarist.

Great tunes for those that wish to hear Paul Rodgers in his pre Bad Company days with pal Simon Kirk . Deep rooted blues and jamming . Rodgers seems to only get better over the decades , not losing a note of his natural ability to belt out the grit and classic rock in this example of his early vocals alongside his gifted band mates. Longtime radio staple " Alright Now " is but a speck of the grit found in their work . Though Free would be short lived success , the band made the most of their time when the mics where hot

WOW! I forgot how great this awesome rock band was! Paul Rodgers is one of the best singer songwriters ever... and he and the band Free's talents shine through on this album. It blew me away the first time I listened to it. I highly recommend this album to those that appreciate excellent rock and roll and the blues.

This song was popular when I was a freshman in high school. Oddly enough, the CD was a gift for my son's 36th birthday. . . . a special request. Funny how things repeat themselves.

Bought this for "All Right Now" which is truly great. I'd forgotten about "Mr. Big". Great track. Highly recommend this.

Wish I had started listening to this band during it's hayday. Love "Mr. Big" (that's why I bought it). If you like good old rock and roll, you should pick this up and give it a listen. Lead singer Paul Rogers (Bad Company) does an excellent job. This is a culmination of there greatest hits and I love it.

Solid Great Rock & Roll. The complete package for a Rock Band. Please note that on my CD Mouthful of Grass has some major issues - it does not play properly! It is my least favorite song of the mix so no, big deal to me. I would have put another song in it's place. Paul Rogers is one of the best rock singers ever!!
