Free (Epoch Universal EP1077) 1970

 

 

 

 

 

 

Early Epoch Universal obscurity boasting a firm brassy Chicago kind of sound that blends rock, jazz, soul and folk. Rob Roy sings, plays guitar and composed a lot of the songs. John Mooter adds keyboards as well as several robust trombone leads. A band called Blue Tater PME fills in the rest of the horns, sax, organ, flute, bass and drums. Unlike a lot of horn rock customs these guys seem to carry some professionalism, packing a good deal of oomph into their playing. Includes Stookey’s ‘Hymn’ and a couple Leonard Cohen songs (‘Suzanne’ and ‘Story Of Isaac’). Back cover states “Roll On Jesus People”. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
