On March 23rd, Eagle Rock Entertainment will re-release Free Forever, a 2-disc DVD compilation of the seminal blues-rock band Free, which featured bassist Andy Fraser, vocalist Paul Rodgers, guitarist Paul Kossoff, and drummer Simon Kirke. I'm almost through the first disc, and I've become a convert in quick order. Judging from the live TV footage of the band taken from 1970, these dudes could go toe-to-toe with just about any other rock band of the day. Rodgers is truly one of the great rock & roll vocalists, Fraser is a beast on his Gibson EB-3 (through Orange and Marshall stacks), and Kossoff is a blues -ock hero (so sad to think he died in 1976 at the mere age of 25...). I can't wait to dig into disc two's set from the band's 1970 performance at the Isle of Wright. —Brian Fox

BTW, did anyone out there happen to catch a performance of these guys back in the day? Would love to hear about it....
