Free Spirit (CD)
Reissue on CD of the 2nd album. With three-fifths of the lineup in the Strawbs on hand, a newcomer to Hudson Ford might expect something folky or progressive, but that's hardly the case. The band was largely a manifestation of Hudson and Ford's desire to indulge in the sort of pop and softer rock discouraged within the Strawbs. As such efforts go, this is not bad, with the peppy title track, the spiky guitar of "Don't Want to Be a Star," and the subtle orchestral touchs throughout from keyboardist Chris Parren. That said, it doesn't exactly make you jump out of your chair either. Unless you've grown really tired of your Wings and Stealers Wheel collections, it's hard to imagine this release getting much attention from anyone except Strawbs completists.
