Back Street Crawler, despite being Paul Kossoff's first post-Free album, contains contributions from all members of that band. "Molten Gold," the most accessible song on the album, features the talent of Free vocalist Paul Rodgers, and is an overlooked shoulda-been hit. Otherwise, the album is highlighted by Kossoff's blues- and rock-based guitar…

Kossoff's death in 1976 left us with but a handful of tracks featuring this tragic, gifted young musician. This CD contains many tracks from Free and Kossoff's session work. Some of his best and overlooked work is on studio sessions where he was free to simply play without the hassles of writing music himself. On these tracks, he truly shines with the heartfelt playing that defined his style.

Back Street Crawler, despite being Paul Kossoff's first post-Free album, contains contributions from all members of that band. "Molten Gold," the most accessible song on the album, features the talent of Free vocalist Paul Rodgers, and is an overlooked shoulda-been hit. Otherwise, the album is highlighted by Kossoff's blues- and rock-based guitar. "Time Away" is a haunting, atmospheric instrumental duet with avant folk-jazz guitarist/singer John Martyn that originally registered 18 minutes in length. The full version was eventually released on the Free box set Songs of Yesterday, but here is edited down significantly in favor of the 17-minute A-side track "Tuesday Morning," a more upbeat but less interesting choice. Regardless of this fault, this is one of those albums that deserves a place in the pantheon of classic rock.

This double CD contains the earliest known recordings of Paul Kossoff, whose tragic death in March 1976 robbed the rock world of one of its finest-ever blues guitarists. Taped at rehearsals with Black Cat Bones in London in 1967, the raw, lo-fi tracks find the teenager already a master of his instrument. Accompanied by musicians including Derek and Stuart Brooks (later to form the legendary Leaf Hound), and featuring a guest appearance from Paul Rodgers (soon to form Free with Kossoff), the recordings are of considerable historical importance. This set is an essential downloads for all serious rock fans.

Paul Kossoff is the finest player of a rock instrument I have heard. I had nothing else with him playing when I bought this CD. I got it to hear his playing. His playing is a delight to listen to. It is precise rather than fast or flashy. He was a troubled man but I do not receive his pain in his playing like for Hendrix - I just get great musicianship. Paul can play one note or play on one string and it sounds wonderful. 30 years ago, a friend who played guitar and who's musical tastes I respected, said to me that the best blues/rock guitarist ever he thought was Paul Kossoff. Other than for Kossoff, this album is not great. I do not like its songs, the lyrics, or the other group members' playing. ~Amazon

Highway was recorded just three months after Free scored the career-redefining hit "Alright Now," and while their profile was at a career-topping high, their morale was heading toward an all-time low. Guitarist Paul Kossoff was reeling from the death of friend Jimi Hendrix; a new single, "The Stealer" – the follow-up to The Hit – bellyflopped ignominiously; and, when the album followed suit, the band itself was not far behind…

Free's second album was recorded with the band itself in considerable turmoil as principle songwriters Paul Rodgers and Andy Fraser demanded strict discipline from their bandmates, and guitarist Paul Kossoff, in particular, equally demanded the spontaneity and freedom that had characterized the group's debut…

Kossoff, Kirke, Tetsu and Rabbit is the 1972 rock album made by guitarist Paul Kossoff, drummer Simon Kirke, bassist Tetsu Yamauchi and keyboard player John "Rabbit" Bundrick. Recorded after Free disbanded, drummer Kirke elected to remain with guitar player Paul Kossoff forming a quartet with Bundrick and Yamauchi in 1971. Although well received and filled with quality songwriting, "Kossoff, Kirke, Tetsu, Rabbit" suffered from the lack of a strong lead vocalist like Rodgers. Kirke's song "Anna" was later re-recorded with Bad Company, the band that he and Rodgers established after the final breakup of Free. The album was reissued in 2007 by Ork Records, a division of Cherry Red, in a remastered edition with a 12-page booklet featuring an interview with Bundrick.

Famed for their perennial "All Right Now," Free helped lay the foundations for the rise of hard rock, stripping the earthy sound of British blues down to its raw, minimalist core to pioneer a brand of proto-metal later popularized by 1970's superstars like Foreigner, Foghat and Bad Company. Free formed in London in 1968 when guitarist Paul Kossoff, then a member of the blues unit Black Cat Bones, was taken to see vocalist Paul Rodgers' group Brown Sugar by a friend, drummer Tom Mautner.
