Free were still more a roots Blues outfit when this was recorded. As a followup to Tons and Sobs, they were still on a journey to define their sound. They were not the rock outfit that would come to be defined, maybe against their wishes, by the later Fire and Water. This is the perfect recording to kick back with a brew and enjoy the vibes. Kudos to Island for the packaging and bonus tracks.

Format: Audio CD
The first two Free albums were classic blues/rock albums. They remain a highlight of British rock music at the end of the sixties. It is hard to believe that the band were 19 years (or less) old for 'Tons of Sobs', a blues rock classic full of raw guitar work from a gifted player who sadly destroyed himself with drugs.
That first album gave indications of the acoustic direction that would be followed on their second release. 'Free' represents their best album. It was such an interesting progression of lovely warm acoustic songs side by side with more great riff-heavy tracks. Its a pity they didn't pursue a more acoustic direction after this. You get glimpses of what else might have been achieved with a much later recorded song 'Travellin' In Style'.
'Free' is a great collection of songs, beautifully produced. This cd edition, along with all the other Free reissues contains bonus material which almost doubles the playing time. A highlight is the single version of 'Broad Daylight' with some great jangly piano accompaniment, and a BBC Radio Session.
Free still released good records after this but without the consistency. They were a vey great band who never fulfilled their potential as Led Zeppelin did. I think that 'Free' is a more consistent, and therefore better album than those first three Zeppelins. Its such a shame about Kossoff dying a young mans death. It unbalanced the band and makes you wonder what they might have achieved.
No doubt Free fans will have snapped this up already, but if you are browsing this way on Amazon and aren't familiar with it, why don't you give this gem a listen I don't think you'll be disappointed.

On a sunny day, morning or evening, summer or winter, I like to play 'Free', the second album by that band. It has a very laid-back, lazy, outdoors vibe, epitomised perhaps by 'Lying in the Sunshine' and 'Mouthful of Grass', but shared by every song on this excellent album: just check out the flute weaving through 'Mourning Sad Morning', or the swagger of the opening track, 'I'll Be Creeping'.
This is definitely one of the essential sunny day albums (if such a list exists).

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Moz on 6 Feb. 2007
Format: Audio CD
For some of (the most fortunate of) us this was a big chunk of sixties summers. Laid back and feeling so good about being alive. You'd go to some party and they'd play "Woman" off some Island compilation and you'd sorta go with it. But in the daytime it'd be full on Free - Laying in the Sunshine, Creepin', Broad Daylight, Trouble, Mouthful et al

Going from vinyl to CD has done a lot for these more introspective albums that'd invariably suffer from a scratch or two. If you played them often it was almost inevitable - particularly if you were a bit spliffed out at the time. Rodgers tells it like it is, Andy lays it down perfectly, Simon does (just about) enough - maybe anymore would have been too much - and Koss colours it all out with sustain and tone. Now that's how a Les Paul should sound!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Following from their impressive debut (Tons of Sobs), Free came straight out of the blocks with this more than impressive follow up. Building on the sound they'd created, a blues drenched rock sound driven by the drums and Bass of Fraser and Kirke, layered with the work of guitar god Kossoff and with the vocals of one of the finest blues singers we've ever produced, Paul Rodgers.

There are some classic tracks here, such as `I'll Be Creepin', and the storming `Songs Of Yesterday'. It's a great stepping stone for their third, and greatest album, `Fire and Water'.This is a great album in it's own right though, and shows that the young group had an astonishing maturity.

This is one of the 2001 Island remaster releases of all Free's albums. The sound has been restored beautifully. It's nowhere near as murky as my old copy, and allows the contribution of each band member to be heard in perfect clarity. There is a set bonus material - alternate takes, and contemporary singles and B sides. These are interesting, but probably more of interest to the completist. There is an interesting essay about the band, which really adds to the set. As an added bonus, if you collect all the discs in the set the spines form a picture.

Format: Audio CD
As several of the previous reviews have stated 'Free' is a perfect soundtrack to a lazy summer day. This album takes me way back to my early teens, lots of happy memories.
The album is very well named, the music contained within is open and spacious, it finds the band feeling free to breathe, finding the confidence within themselves as a unit to take a step away from the blues rock blueprint of their debut 'Tons of sobs' to explore deeper more mature musical territory without loosing their identity.
Tender heartfelt blues songs sit well beside taut rockers and theres not one second of filler anywhere on the album.

The CD artwork due to its size doesn't have the same impact as the original vinyl gatefold sleeve but the remastered music more than makes up for this, plus theres ten extra tracks, early singles, rare 'b sides' and alternate takes from the Free album sessions added on after the main course and a very a good essay on the album within the CD booklet.

One last treat for me was seeing the old original pink Island Records label with the white I used as the CD lable detail.

This is my personal favourite Free album. It has stood the test of time very well and still sounds fresh today. I reccomend it fully to any fan of good contemporary rock music. I have to add that I feel Island/Universal records should be given a hearty round of applause for the excellent job they have done on their remasters series.
