    A truly great British blues/rock band during there own time and in the 45 years since there demise.

    Probably my all time favourite track of there's is WISHING WELL I remember hearing it being played on BBC radio 1 back in 1973 when it was in the British singles charts and thought it was really good rock song anyway these days whenever I hear that song I usually think of Paul Kossoff who I believe the song was about.

    Free - Goin' Down Slow



    :bow: really digging this track, I think this is the first time that I've heard this song by Free. Plenty of other blues musicians over the years, but this one is new to me. :)

    I am definitely going to have to invest in the Free discography.

    Here's another cool as hell tune!

    Paul Kossoff is a forgotten guitar genius.

    I have all there albums plus the x5 cd box set called Songs Of Yesterday Day and also at onetime back in the early 2000s I had a large hardback copy of the book called Heavy Load written by one of there big fans David Clayton although I haven't got the book anymore.

    Favourite track Wishing Well.

    Surprisingly and from memory a small number of black male & female R&B/soul artist's rated the band back in the early 1970s.

    Cool live performance of Mr Big from 1970:





    It's so sad that the ONLY song you'll ever hear from this incredible band on the radio is "All Right Now". They had so many other great tunes outside of that one tune.
