Blood, sweat & vinyl

Lots of adrenaline and testosterone in this week's releases!

FREE - FIRE AND WATER

Free - Fire And WaterDespite a short life span, Free were a huge influence to bands such as Bad Company and Foreigner, thanks to their style of stripped-down British Blues.

Fire And Water, peaked at #17 in the album charts, carried by the classic Rock anthem "All Right Now". Their revered legacy is justified with Music On Vinyl's 180 gram audiophile treatment.
