Without music, life woud be a mistake (Friedrich Nietzsche)

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces,
I would still plant my apple tree

There are people capable of playing this?!"
This is what I think whenever listening to this album. Two years ago, I heard the last allegro of Winter from this album on a classical radio station. I bought it immediately (after I caught my breath). It was and still is one of the most amazing things I have ever heard - The Four Seasons played pizzicato on guitars. The trio's execution is flawless.

The dynamic changes they somehow surprisingly master make this, I think, far more moving than the traditionally instrumented version we've all heard ten thousand times. I have had this disc for two years, and I still catch my breath. I am grateful that such skilled artists had the idea to present this work to us.

One of the first German bootlegs was the "Hardin & York" live recording at a youthclub in Hamburg-Altona in 1970. A real collector´s item and till 1994 really hard to find ...

But then Eddie Hardin & Pete York decided, to publish this bootleg as an "official bootleg".

It´s really amazing to listen to the live sound of "the smallest big band", which was then and now more than exciting. A mixture between a jazzy version of The Beatles tunes "Lady Madonna" and "Norwegian Wood" (later called "Northern Medley") sentimental ballads and of course their famous Rock N Roll Medley.

Anyone into '60s rock would consider Free together with Cream and Led Zeppelin among the key blues-influenced bands. Formed in 1968, Free's original lineup included drummer Simon Kirke, bassist Andy Fraser, vocalist Paul Rodgers and guitarist Paul Kossoff.

When Free disbanded in 1973, it has been reported that Rodgers was offered the lead vocalist slot with Deep Purple which he turned down. He then joined Kirke, Boz Burrell (King Crimson) and guitarist Mick Ralphs (Mott The Hoople) to form Bad Company.

Before Bad Company and during a fallout from Free, Rodgers also fronted Peace, which featured Stewart McDonald and Mich Underwood.

Here are three tracks Peace performed live at the BBC in 1971. These tracks were later recorded by Free and Bad Company.

Paul Rodgers (vocals, guitar)
Mick Underwood (drums)
