Product Description

Product Description

With the folding of Sharks and after a brief period with Frankie Miller and Henry McCullough, Fraser created the Andy Fraser Band with Nick Judd (keyboards) and Kim Turner (drums), recording these two superb albums in 1975. The sleevenote is written by David Clayton – author of the acclaimed Free biography 'Heavy Load.

4.0 out of 5 stars Free bassist shows soul side 12 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
Recorded after Fraser (the original bassist in Free) had spent a spell listening to Stevie Wonder and other soul stars of the time (mid 70s), the influence shows. The Andy Fraser Band album is the more rewarding featuring a bass/electric piano/drums trio with Fraser doubling up on vocals. The sound is appropriately enough the sound of a more soulful Free without the voice of Rodgers and the guitar of Koss. Great songs but ultimately lacking in colour and range. In Your Eyes, recorded in Muscles Shoals with studio musicians is more your conventional blue eyed soul of the era with girlie backing singers, still identifiably Fraser but moving further away from the Free template. As a pair the albums are good value especially for Free fans. Though those who prefer the rockier side of Free will probably be disappointed with In Your Eyes. If however, much as you loved Rodgers and Koss, you concur that Fraser was the real strength of the band, this set is manna from heaven.

5.0 out of 5 stars MISSING LINK? 12 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
One of the great mysteries of rock music, is the ultimate disappearance of ex-Free bass player Andy Fraser, from it's bosom.
Everybody remembers Paul Kossof, quite rightly and most people understand why the band could not realistically continue, after his demise. Few people though appreciate the importance of bassman Fraser (don't forget, he wrote 'Alright Now' at the ripe old age of seventeen) and for me, the band was never quite as good, after his departure.
This brace of albums from 1975, is well worth picking up if you are a Free fan. In fact, if you consider yourself a serious Free afficianado, the first one of these albums is essential, being, spiritually, part of their canon. Far superior to his previous post-Free outings with Toby and Sharks, Fraser is augmented by Kim Turner on drums and keyboard wiz Nick Judd, a refugee from Sharks and Audience, another great forgotten British band of the early seventies. That the album is one of very few to feature electric bass as the lead instrument, is another point of interest.
The album, overall, is good, without being great. The lead track 'Don't Hide You Love Away' is, however, a lost classic and would make this album worth five stars, even if the rest of it were made up of Des O'Connor out takes!
Fraser's voice is uncannily like Paul Rodger's, Fraser's being the soul counterpart to his Free sibling's fantastic R&B vox.
The second of these albums is a lot more laid back and (sorry andy!) a bit dull, but 'Don't Hide Your Love Away' alone, is worth the twenty to thirty quid you're going to have to fork out for this deleted compilation.
Anoraks note: 'Andy Fraser Band' is the long searched for, missing-link, between Free and Eighties soul-rockers, Roachford.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take some time to get to know this album 20 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
I am a Free fan and have added Paul Kossoff and Paul Rodgers solo works to my collection but until recently no Andy Fraser. So, when I spotted this collection of early solo albums I decided to take a gamble and get it.
Initially as another reviewer has said I thought yes, OK, but not outstanding.
I think though, after a few plays the album IS quite good, Particularly the first section which features the proto bass led power trio that was the Andy Fraser Band. This is very reminisicent of the latter Free albums. The sound of these remind me of 'Magic Ship' and 'Travelling Man'. So this album features Fraser's lead on Bass and Vocals. He is aided by fellow band members Nick Judd on Keyboards and Kim Turner (brother of Wishbone Ash guitarist Ted Turner).
When the critics got wind of this they posted headlines such as 'What are they going to do, backing tracks?'. To which Fraser responded by pointing out "Because of the way I play bass now the band doesn't really seem to be missing guitar. Nick plays bass pedals extremely welll which means I can solo on top of that, especially with the mellowness of his piano. It really works very well"
Indeed it does, its a shame he never kept the band toghether longer to further develop the sound. Ah well..............

The second part of the album is the Muscle Shoals produced 'In your Eyes' album. which is OK, if you like late night FM radio AOR.
Still if you are a Free fan and don't have this in your collection then you should.

4.0 out of 5 stars Andy solos after breaking Free from Sharks! 3 July 2000
By D. Hartley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
(Sorry about that header.) Andy Fraser, best known as bass player for Free/Sharks and composer of the rock anthem "All Right Now", released these two underrated albums in 1975/'76, and they have been next to impossible to find until now.Believe it or not, Fraser took much flak at the time for having the nerve to release a "rock" album with bass, drums and keyboards only. (Funny, no one ever questioned Emerson, Lake & Palmer's ability to "rock" with that same instrumental lineup!)In other words, it didn't sound much like Free...but in retrospect, the material has held up very well and the songwriting and musicianship are superb. Musicians will find Fraser's "lead bass" style interesting;some of the R&B/funk influenced grooves parallel the patented "Larry Graham" sound. Recommended for fans 70's Brit-rock.
