What's new on this web page?

If you see the date changing on this page, without an announcement in this section, it is probably something like fixing minor coding problems, spelling errors, minor layout changes, new page on this site (so I changed bottom index), ... Any major changes to this page, will be announced here.

February 25, 2008. I have been haunting the used CD stores, and picked up a few more of the remastered CDs. The details of the recordings have now been added to this web site.

October 24, 2007. I have been haunting the used CD stores, and picked up a few more of the remastered CDs. The details of the recordings have now been added to this web site.

November 1, 2006. I just received my copy of Live At The BBC, and have changed / corrected some of my prior track listings.

July 15, 2006. Free Forever DVD, with archival performance footage and new interview footage with the remaining 3 members, will be released on September 11, 2006 in the U.K. and will be released later in the U.S. Some of the details of the video are now on this web site.

July 18, 2005. I just noticed that the ezBoard message board that I had set up for this web site had been deleted. Since restoration of the deleted conference is only available to subscribers to their service, and since the activity was relatively light, I not planning on looking for another message board. If you do think a message board is worth while, or you have a message board that you like, let me know and I may promote it here. As always you can contact me here.

October 12, 2004. I just noticed that Message To Love - Isle of Wight DVD has been released, and it contains 1 track by Free.

February 21, 2002. Now that the box set has been out a while, the entire Free catalog is being remastered with bonus tracks. Last time I looked, the remastered CDs were only available as imports.

December 9, 2001. AllRightNow.com will have Paul Rodgers in their chat room for about 1 hour. 3pm East Coast time. 12 noon West Coast time. 8pm UK time.

March 10, 2001. It looks like I may have been premature in moving to a new web hosting site. I just found out that whenever Tripod.com is having hardware or software problems with their servers, they put up a message for the webmaster that their site is in violation of terms, and the web site has been deleted (instead of a message about system problems and try again later). Anyway, I believed Tripod.com when they said they deleted my account, so I will be moving, and making chromeoxide.com my new home on the web.

March 10, 2001. As long as I am moving my entire site, I decided to make a few changes to the layout of the individual pages, and the web site in general, including (but not limited to) I removed the counter, and moved the listings of mirror sites to the bottom of the page, ...

March 6, 2001. Sometime between March 1 to March 5, 2001 Tripod deleted my account/web site. The last stats Tripod gave me were 9,000+ visitors per month. Since my site is so popular, I have decided to keep it going, in spite of this major setback. But rather than trying to build up another free web site, and possibly deal with this problem again, I decided go with CommandLine.net to host the new chromeoxide.com.

January 27, 2001. I just picked up the 5CD box set, Songs Of Yesterday. This is a very nice package for anyone who is a fan of Free. It comes with a very nice booklet with lots of photos, information about the band and information about the recording sessions. And, of course, a fair amout of material that has not been previously released.

October 31, 2000. The new Chrome Oxide Music Collectors Pages Message Board is provided by EZBoard.

October 31, 1999. There used to be a complete listing of all the bands featured on this site at the bottom of each page on this site. The complete band list has now been moved to the Site Map.

Back in June 1997 when I started this site, the index at the bottom of the page seemed like a good idea. Due to the amazing growth of this site, I now think that the Site Map is a better way to do it.

I will continue to list the featured band of the month at the bottom of each page on this site.

December 3, 2002 CD Now is undergoing changes, and asked that ALL links be removed.
October 28, 1999 I signed up with CD Now.

October 22, 1999. The Chrome Oxide Music Collector Pages web site hit the big time! And I didn't even know it.

Tripod stats showed that this web site had more than 4,000 unique visitors last month (September 1999). Because of that, Tripod has increased my web space from 11mb to 50mb.

May 21, 1999. On the advice of legal counsel, we have now added a copyright notice, and legal disclaimer to the bottom of each page on this web site.

March 31, 1999. I started a new section on this page, Classifieds. Now, if someone is interesed in putting an ad here, or I find something I think is worthwhile, there is a place for it.

March 16, 1999. Thanks to a recent visitor to this page, we now have a logo for the Chrome Oxide Music Collectors Pages, as well as a new background and seperator bars. There may be additional changes to look forward to as well.

February 2, 1999. I started working on this page.

INTRO
[Top (page index)] [Up] [Down] [Bottom (site index)]

Free, was a blues/rock band from England in the late 1960s. All the members had been in other bands, but hadn't found any fame or fortune prior to Free. Starting off with a heavy blues sound on their first album, they moved towards more of a rock sound in later studio and live recordings.

While vocalist Paul Rodgers has continued on with Bad Company, The Firm, and various solo recordings, I feel the music that he wrote and recorded with Free (including Paul Kossoff - extraordinary guitarist) was the best.

I have listed all the albums that I am aware of that were original records of the band (but not any compilations), but only listed 45s where it didn't look like the tracks had been released in any other format.

Paul Kossoff died March 19, 1976 from drug related side effects.

Comments and corrections would be appreciated.

And of course, any audio-video-print additions to my collection would be appreciated.

I am also interested in getting wider exposure for this site. So links from your site to mine would be appreciated. And if you know of any sites that allow/encourage submission, I would also appreciate knowing about them as well.

Do you have any articles, books, albums, tapes, CDs, ... on this band that you would like reviewed and / or integrated into this page?

Do you have any other band that you would like to see a page for on this site?

Let me know what you think of this idea?

And if you do order something listed here, let them know you found out about it here.

MusicStack looks like a good source of used music items (LPs, CDs, posters, ...).
As always, let me know what you think.

4 Million Hard to Find CDs & LPs at MusicStack
December 10, 2002.
Back in October 1999 I put up links to CD-Now so that visitors could easily link to the related band pages and instantly see which items were still in print/available for purchase. CD-Now no longer has that option. For the moment I am putting in Amazon.com search boxes. Amazon.com doesn't easily allow for links to individual band pages in the same way that CD-Now used to. So, instead of me being able to create direct links, I have put up the Amazon.com search box instead. So you can still go to a page with the various bands products, buy you now need to go through a search box.

As always, let me know what you think.
