Recorded in 1970 and comprising of tracks drawn from their 1st four studio albums (tons of sobs, free, fire and water, highway), this is a brilliant and powerful live album from one of the great blues rock bands ever.... In addition to the 1971(year of release) original track listing, several bonus tracks (all live except 'Get where I belong')) have been added and their presence greatly enhances this CD version. A couple of these actually surpass the 1971 vinyl versions (All Right Now and Mr Big).The 'new' All Right Now is far better than track one, which is a bit sloppy and not a patch on the single/fire & water version.
Track one aside, the party kicks off with 'I'm a Mover' and doesn't let up from thereon. Most tracks possibly eclipse the studio versions (though the 'studio' albums are mostly excellent also).
Free were/are one of the top bands in my opinion. Paul Rodgers strong, passionate and soulful voice, Andy Fraser's innovative 'lead guitar' style bass playing (listen to Mr Big) and Simon Kirke's steady solid backbeat excel on this live document. One must not forget the Fraser/Rodgers songwriting team responsible for so many great songs.
The reason I'm a big fan however is down to the guitar playing of Paul Kossoff. His roaring and screaming vibrato lead has never failed to make the neck hairs stand on end ....even when he plays one note it can have the desired affect. He hits the spot where other guitarists simply fail to reach. If you like passionate and emotional guitar playing at its BEST, listen to Paul Kossoff. Unbelievably, like the rest of the band, he was only around age 20 at the time...
A fitting live document to a magnificent band who were sadly short-lived.

Catch me on a certain day and I'll swear "Free Live" could well be Free's best album - because here they play with an intensity that matches, if not surpasses, even their best album work.
Breaking this almighty beast down into it's components you'll notice from the moment you hit "play" that Rogers' singing is rawer and more emotive than ever before, which is to say nothing of Kirke's drumming, which is absolutely astounding and able to change tempo and style with impressive fluidity. Then to add to this there are Fraser's bass lines, which are fat and groovy and finally Kossoff's guitar riffs, which come screaming out of the speakers and pretty much nail you to the wall. Add them all together, not forgetting that these are a fine bunch of tunes, and I think you have possibly the finest live album ever to be released.
Also, as much as I adore the original album, the extra tracks included on this reissue are possibly even better - certainly the "new" versions of "Mr Big" and "Alright Now" which have been added easily surpass the "original" versions included on the album. There is also a fantastic version of "Woman" and a rumbling "Walking In My Shadow" that really enables Rogers to flex his vocal muscles!
Highly recommended!

This remastered and expanded Free Live cd captures them at their prime in Sunderland, Croydon (1970) and London (1971, two studio versions of the ballad Get where I belong, that in a way announced their break-up later that year).
All Right Now starts off the proceedings, squawking out of the loudspeakers with its plodding rhythm, Paul Kossof's emotional raw guitar and Paul Rodgers' bravado vocals. Such is the power of this song that it 3x times reached the top of the hit parades in the 1970s. The musical tension between the aggressive bass of Andy Fraser and Paul Kossof, underpinned by the solid pace-setting of Simon Kirke then continues on improved live versions of studio favourites like Ride on a pony to culminate in Mr. Big (track 6).
The additional tracks (9-15) maintain the high level with slightly different, a bit more controlled repeats of Mr. Big and All Right Now and Woman (the growling vocals) and Trouble on double (Paul Kossof really lets his blues-infected guitar out here) as the other highlights. This album ranks as one of the greatest live recordings in rock's history.

As a teenager of the 21st century some of my peers find it hard to grasp why i am a massive fan of not only 'classic' rock but especially of a band like Free who are not given much applause in the history of Rock 'n' Roll. Well hopefully the answer to this question can be answered by listening to this stunning Free record.
Recorded during the bands hayday and contaning material created during their first 4 albums this record shows why Free had such a blistering live reputaion as it perfectly shows of Free's powerful rythem section of Simon Kirke (one of rock's finest drummers) and bass playing child prodigy Andy Fraser (just listen to Mr Big!!!!)as well as Paul Kossoff's hugely underestimated guitaring at it's best concluding with the man with the greatest voice in rock memory Paul Rodgers.
This record itself is simply spellbounding and any band can take this as a blueprint of how to play live with the power and pressence of such tracks as 'I'M a Mover', 'Mr Big' , my personal favourite 'Ride on Pony' and of course 'Alright Now' leaving this record to be a must for any music fan or budding musician.
