FREEDOM was formed in the summer of 1967 by two ex PROCOL HARUM members BOBBY HARRISON and RAY ROYER. Both had been dismissed from Procol after 'internal disagreements' They became the first clients of Jonathon Weston who had been Procolís Manager (until he had been ousted just before Harrison and Royer). They all had something to prove.

They were immediately commissioned by Dino De Laurentis (famed Italian producer) to write the score for an Italian film 'Black On White' and in 1968 wrote and recorded 14 tracks within 2 months. The band was then asked to appear in the actual film by the director Tinto Brass playing the songs as a commentary to a film virtually without any dialogue.

The film was critically acclaimed at the following years Cannes Film Festival even though it was always destined to be an art film.

By early 1969 the original Freedom were no more and Bobby Harrison had replaced all the band members apart from himself and entered Orange Studios on London in June 1969 to record what was treated then as the band's first LP 'Freedom At Last'.

That though is another story. Sit back, tune in, turn on and drop out and listen to one of the finest psychedelic pop albums never officially released with shades of PROCOL HARUM, TRAFFIC and FAMILY
