Free – It’s All Right Now.

Free? Oh yes the band who recorded that song used in a chewing gum advert. That’s the way some recall one of the seminal bands of the late 1960s/early 1970s. Yet here was a British band who might have been around for less than five years, yet their impact was immeasurable.

Singers still measure themselves against Paul Rodger’s cultured tones. Paul Kossoff was a guitar icon. Andy Fraser, just 15 when the band formed, was a bassist and songwriter of the highest calibre. Simon Kirke was a drummer who proved economy could be so potent.

Oh and that song? ‘All Right Now’.
