Product Description:

Recorded in 1972. Originally released on Paula (LP 2213). Includes liner notes by Mick Patrick & Malcolm Baumgart.
Digitally remastered by Ron Capone & Dale Gardner.
This 1972 outing by R&B/soul singer Fontella Bass includes "To Be Free" and "I Need Love."
The British edition presents four additional tracks.
CD contains 4 bonus tracks.
Fontella Bass's classic R&B recording, FREE, formerly NOW THAT I FOUND A GOOD THING, is a fun and deep-pocketed groove album that's good for what ails you. Bass's singing is life affirming and truly stirring.
FREE contains Fontella Bass's most well-known 1965 hit, "Rescue Me," a song that almost has Bass competing for Aretha Franklin's title as the Queen of Soul. Other songs, such as "I Need Love," find Bass adopting a down-home 12/8 blues feel. On this tune, she's echoed by a background choir of singers who create a distinctly gospel feel. A buoyant, invigorating album, FREE offers 11 tracks of solid performances and inspired songwriting.
