That Paul, died so young is doubly tragic not only for his family and friends but also for the many musicians who have tried unsuccessfully to emulate the great man's playing in the ensuing twenty-seven years.
Amazingly Paul's sound and tone are well in evidence on this track from 1968 and to think that Paul at this time was just about eighteen almost beggars belief that a talent so big and confident should be bursting out of someone so young.
The Best Of Paul Kossoff really is that rarity in the world of compilation albums A true best of and a fine testament to one of the finest rock guitarists who ever lived and as a testimony I doubt that I could say anything else that is more fitting.

In the early '70s, Paul Kossoff [+] was a much-heralded young guitarist from a much-heralded young rock band called Free [+].
His ability to do the work of two guitarists -- Free [+], for the most part, was a barebones guitar/bass/drums/singer outfit -- was one of his greatest strengths and, despite a good deal of studio dubbing, you can hear it in places on this album.
The material from Kossoff's solo disc, Back Street Crawler [+], and the band of the same name which he subsequently assembled, is not to be sniffed at either.
