Free became renowned for their live shows and non‐stop touring. When ‘All Right Now’ became a massive worldwide hit it propelled them into the upper echelon of the rock pantheon. The song helped secure them a place at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970, where they played to 600,000 people. In early 1971 they played a short American tour and were recorded for radio station KUSC in Santa Monica. This album features many songs that went on to become classics, including the afore mentioned ‘All Right Now’.

Free were a miraculous live band in which four young people with an average age of 20 embodied the ideal of blues rock.
