The Free Band were a Canadian trio (Linda Carroll, Foster Reed and Roland Cohen) whose 1969 LP is very reminiscent of groups like Rebecca & The Sunny Brook Farmers with a folk-bluegrass/raga feel to it. Great instrumentation and lyrics. I can’t find anymore info on this group, so let the music speak for itself. Enjoy!!! (Jack Dominilla)
” I am, believe it or not, Roland Cohen of The Free Band (the lead male singer and co-writer of most of the songs). I was shocked that you managed to procure a copy of our old old record, and that you LIKED IT!!!! Actually, we were not Canadian. I’m From NYC originally and Foster is from Cincinnati Ohio and Linda was from Ohio (I think, can’t remember for sure, she was only with us for a short time). Foster and I met in boarding school as did the other musicians not mentioned. Sadly, our record was never promoted, though it was released, and so died a quick death but for a playing here and there on local radio stations in the early 70s. Anyway, feel free to contact me if you’d like some more info or a few of the endless stories. I think you are the only enduring fan I know of! Thanks for your interest. It’s so long ago. I just happened to google it tonight.”.
