Friday Night Hurricane Music

26 08 2011

This is a live version of the song “Mr. Big” by the group Free.  Now, you’re probably thinking, “why in the world is this so good?”  Well, Free is better known for the song “All Right Now,” which anyone with a brain has probably heard at least once in their life.  So why did I choose this?

For me, the interplay between the guitar and bass during what is essentially an extended jam is very awesome.  Plus the trading of solos.  Both guitar (Paul Kossof) and bass (Andy Fraser) are underrated beyond all belief.  Paul Rodgers, the guy singing, is better known as the vocals for Bad Company and that guy who replaced Freddie Mercury in an obscure group called Queen.

Basically, this is just something that’s been stuck in my head, and is a good example of how the music of yesteryear was more about the instrumental showcase, and not just about clever hooks.
