Fire and Water vinyl LP

Half-speed mastered • OBI Strip • Certificate

Fire And Water was the third and most successful album by the revered English rock band. It was their breakthrough album, sending them to number 2 in the UK charts and number 17 in the US. “On this album,” notes bass player Andy Fraser, “our confidence came from our total belief in each other. It was like a team of commandos where you knew we were all watching each other’s back.”

Much of the album’s success was driven by the smash hit single All Right Now, an unimpeachable classic which has become one of the songs that define what is widely regarded as one the most creative eras in rock music.Boasting a fantastic rhythm section (Fraser and drummer Simon Kirke), exquisite guitar work from the late Paul Kossoff and soulful vocals by Paul Rodgers, Free are rightly considered to be one of the greatest post-Beatles blues-rock bands, hard rock pioneers alongside such outfits as Cream, Led Zeppelin and Derek and the Dominos. This record represents perhaps their high water mark and is perfectly suited to the half speed process.

The original cut for this record was half speed mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell
