I have just received this new remastered version and it is absolutely fantastic! The sound quality is excellent, especially considering that it was recorded in the late sixties. The drums have been cleaned up and the guitars / vocals subtly tweaked. The bonus tracks are great especially 'Visions of Hell' and 'Woman by the sea' which later was released as 'Remember' on the Fire and Water album. I'm going to replace my existing Free CDs with these new remasters!

It's a cryin' shame this album is only available as an import here in the U.S. of A., but at least it isn't too pricey an import. That aside, 'Tons of Sobs' is my favorite Free record, and one of the best examples of British blues rock of this period. The style is very heavy, like Cream, but more refined, perhaps like Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac. Rodgers and Kossoff are at the peak of their respective powers. The band went on to release more polished and successful albums, but this one is where the heart is. If you like late-sixties Brit blues rock, this one won't fail ya. 'Worry', 'Walk in my Shadow' and 'Sweet Tooth' are standout tracks.

I missed this one, for some reason, during the late 60's/early 70's, My mistake!! This is GREAT!! It's right up there with "Heartbreaker", or any of their releases. Free's rendition of the blues classic "Goin' Down Slow" is alone worth the price of admission. I received this CD today 03/20/04 (shipped 09/15/04!!) and I feel really good about today - because of this CD. Absolutely Great.

If you're a Free fan then this album is a must have. It's their Genesis album, their musical launch pad. Before the hype, before the egos, before the drugs... there was Tons of Sobs. A technically raw album, it provides a fascinating glimpse into the energetic, early potential of this group. The album is a Sgt Pepper's style journey, beginning and ending with the haunting 'Over the Green Hills' Some great performances are wedged in between... Worry, Walk in my shadow, I'm a mover, and the classic Hunter. Kossoff's fluid guitar work, intense vibrato laden lead work dominates while Kirke and Fraser provide a solid musical backing. Rodgers voice is gritty, with his distinctive phrasing punctuating the riff laden tracks. Close your eyes and be transported back to a time when the music and the vibe did the talking...

Free was by any stretch of the imagination, a legendary rock band. Blues prodigies by the ripe old average age of seventeen and a half, Paul Rodgers, Paul Kossoff, Andy Fraser and Simon Kirke should be in the Rock n' Roll hall of Fame. Alas, the idiots that select that crap haven't considered their contributions as meaningful enough. Should you care? Listen to their debut, `Tons of Sobs' which was released in the late winter of 1969, though it should have come out about three months earlier. The album is powerful and raw, much heavier by contrast to their later more well known releases such as `Fire and Water'. "Walk in My Shadow" is pulverizing in its intensity and anger and "Worry" is justifiably titled. Kossoff is amazing on this record and why he isn't as well known today is a crime. "I'm A Mover" and "The Hunter" are the most well known songs from the record but will never get any American radio airplay! "Wild Indian Woman" is very sexual and you can hear the lust in Rodgers' voice. It is very hard to remind yourself that these were kids, "The Heavy Metal Kids" if Chirs Blackwell, Island's label boss, had his way. "Goin' Down Slow" and "Moonshine" would be the slow blues highlights of this remarkable record. `Sobs' was not a big commercial success but put Free on the map of British blues and on to bigger and richer pastures. You may be pleasantly surprised at the ferocity of this LP but Free were for real, as young and punchy as they were.

TONS OF SOBS by Free was the group's debut, originally released in the U.S. by A&M records (SP 4198) in 1969. This ensemble's trademark clean and economical sound, the rhythm and counter-rhythms among the vocals, bass, lead guitar and drums and a strong selection of original blues-based tunes, make this an enjoyable listening experience for all. "Sweet Tooth," "Wild Indian Woman" and "The Hunter" (which remains part of Paul Rodgers' in-concert setlist to this day) are standout cuts, but the material fits together well throughout.

I`ve had a vinyl copy of this since new, and I never tire of playing it every so often. The raw energy of Kossoff, so soon to tragically take his own life, blends perfectly with the unique voice of Paul Rodgers, in this, their debut album. Its obvious that they haven`t yet developed much musical style, as each song tends to sound much the same from beginning to end, without a lot of variation. But within this album can be heard the basis of the unique "Free" sound, so crank up the volume and enjoy!
