Awesome!

I don't think Andy Fraser ever gets enough credit - he co-wrote nearly all the songs and his bass playing is so melodic and interesting.  He was only 18 in that clip!

My girlfriend was only 13 when she saw Free live but she was hooked
I agree with the teenage years being the formative ones for taste in music

For me it was early Queen etc and still is to these days

At least hairdo wise for sure, Jonathan, you're crowned by the perfect Brian May curls  :D

Excellent clip, the DVD is worth a watch but most of the songs are played multiple times.
It's quite something to see a great live band really going-for-it.

Meh. That kind of stuff is fun to play in a band but boring as hell to just listen to.

I believe that things like music, books, and films have the biggest impact when you're in your teens/early 20s.  You can still like loads of new stuff as you get older, but I don't think you ever "connect" with it in quite the same way.   I still like the bands I was into at your age, maybe you'll find the same when you're my age!  :P

Then again, I find, now, that I also like bands from the same period - '70s/early '80s - even if I didn't listen to them at the time.  So maybe it's just that the music from "your own era" somehow reflects the "spirit" of the time it was recorded, and that's what you connect with. 

I think you're spot on there Philly. I have developed a reasonably wide appreciation of music styles but it is still the sounds I grew up with that really get me going.

I saw Free live many times and they were always great.  I also think Andy Fraser is a great bass player and have the Andy Fraser band LP's that came out after Free split.
