Kossoff, Kirke, Tetsu, Rabbit
Paul Kossoff has a deserved reputation for having been an outstanding guitarist, renowned for his fluid, slow, and melodic leads and bluesy riffs. His untimely death, and the manner of his demise sadly often overshadow his achievements. Kossoff’s time with Free helped define blues rock in the late 1960’s. Following their initial split in 1971 Kossoff kept the spirit flowing with this one off album, recorded with fellow Free founder Simon Kirke, plus bassist Tetsu Yamauchi, and legendary keyboardist John Rabbit Bundrick.
