No, not a giveaway. Free, the rock band. I suppose they ever so slightly pre-date me as I remember this song had been out maybe a couple of years when I started at Church Youth Club as a mere sprog. Ah…Church Youth Club …the stories I could tell, and they have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with church or religion. If the Reverend only knew… Or, come to think of it, with all the running around he did, I think he probably did!
This band had the coolest sound. I remember this track being played and lots of the young blokes launching into their air guitar moves - so funny now I look back. What is all that air guitar business about anyway? How about learning it ‘for reals’?
Free had a remarkably short career together but produced some great music. With the slight difference in timings of their career and my early/developing music tastes I know them best for : All Right Now, Wishing Well and My Brother Jake – all great tracks. It seemed piggy to post all three videos, but I am going to post two. The first because it’s a rock classic (‘All Right Now’) and the second because it’s a nice tribute to singer Paul Rodgers using My Brother Jake. Paul Rodgers has a tremendous voice and until recently fronted rock band Queen.
Happy Friday – have a good weekend.
