Music today comes from Free and their classic album Fire And Water (1970). I’m a fan of any record that has Paul Kossoff playing guitar, the most minimalist guitarist I ever heard, every note meant something, feel, tone, finesse, vibrato like no one else, control, brilliant. Then there’s Andy Fraser’s unique bass playing, original, characterful, different. Simon Kirke’s warm punchy drumming and of course Paul Rodgers’ soulful vocals. Warm, sad, wonderful. Rodgers and Kirke were 20, Kossoff was 19, Fraser was 17 and this was their third album.
