Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
Today we look at Free as they appear on the remarkable cover of the sampler:
Well, they get pride of place on the front row, even though their first album was not going to be released for a couple of months or so. Ominously, and conspicuous by his absence, is the lead guitarist Paul Kossoff, who was to die prematurely in the 1970s. The dark haired chap with the folder under his arm is the “manager” Andy Fraser. To the left of him (i.e. on his right) is Paul Rodgers, and to the left of him, on the left edge of the picture, is Simon Kirke.
There are some photos in the CD insert, and I think I’ll post them next time.
