The first studio recordings by Free date from October 1968 and comprise a wild, unprecedented blast of teenage blues-rock, outsnarling the same-year debut by Led Zeppelin. These tracks – most of which were included on the band’s slightly compromised debut album Tons Of Sobs – indicate a classic blueprint for British heavy rock music. Within two years Free’s music would become comparatively repetitive and boring, but the 9-track compilation Visions Of Hell delivers an unbridled discharge of transmogrified electric garage blues.
