Warthur
On their self-titled album Free craft a hard-edged style of blues rock with their own original style - no uncredited borrowings from classic bluesmen from these guys - which manages to walk a careful tightrope that deftly avoids the sort of lapses into over-technical navel gazing that some corners of the British blues-rock boom had found themselves prone to. For the most part the material is heavy and electric-driven, though album closer Mourning Sad Morning has an acoustic folk styling to it which makes it well-placed as the album closer. A bit more intimate and less flashy and boisterous than much similar work from the period, Free is one to mull over and think on.
