ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Free Will was a legendary band from Upstate New York who formed in 1968 and signed to RCA Records in 1971. Led by vocalist Joe Whiting and lead guitarist Mark Doyle, the band also featured George Egosarian on second guitar, John DeMaso on bass, and Tom Glaister on drums.
Along with their signing to RCA came a name change, to Jukin' Bone. Under that name they recorded two albums, "Whiskey Woman" and "Way Down East" that were hailed by Creem magazine as seminal classics of 70's hard rock. While signed to RCA, the band toured with ZZ Top, Freddie King, The Allman Brothers, The Kinks, John Mayall, and Three Dog Night, among others. They disbanded acrimoniously in 1973, although Doyle and Whiting went on to record several fine albums on the Blue Wave label.
That should have been the end of the story, but the band was honored at the Syracuse Area Music Awards in 1993, resulting in them playing together for the first time in 25 years. Never fond of the name that their record company gave them (and all the attendant misery that it grew to represent for them), the boys reclaimed their original name, Free Will. They have since gathered together every few years to do major outdoor concerts in Syracuse, and this live CD captures the band playing all of its classic material at the top of their form.

jukin bone direct predecessors of aerosmith
I assume that joe perry and steven tallarico saw many a
jukin bone concert during aerosmith's formative years.
Although steve had his own (very) distinctive voice, it's
unlikely that he would have been the same vocalist without
utilizing some of joe's phrasing and general (no dis this)
blues-rock style. It's also impossible to listen to
aerosmith without noticing the similarity to jukin bone's
rhythm-and-lead-guitar assault. The ryhthm section also
brings to mind j.b.'s. And it just occurs to me that
without "Nightcrawler", there would not be one of my
favorite aerosmith songs, "Draw the Line" (listen to one,
followed immediately by the other).
Having said this, I hope I can go slightly beyond the
requested cd review and refer to the artist(s) in general-
I actually own both jukin' bone albums (including their
first in the sadly missed flexi-disc format) and was
wondering about interest in purchasing them (pardon my
frowardness, but I use the computer at a county library
and figured I'd better cut to the chase). They're both
in very good shape, and I predict the flexi-disc will
still be so long after I my flexibility resembles that
of an old 78 rpm record (my discs-well I don't want to
complain...)... I'll check out this sight again to see if
there is any interest.

I first saw Free Will as a teenager and quite frankly wondered why a band that good was not playing large venues around the country. They looked the part and more importantly they played the part. Mark Doyle is one of the most brilliant guitar players I have ever heard. I don't know anyone who can play like Eric Clapton (Cream days) AND Keith Richards in the same song. And he makes it look so easy. Joe Whiting is equally adept at his instrument... his voice. The real magic is when the two of them play together. As good as they may be on their own there is no denying that they bring out the best in each other. They put together the best supporting cast they could find in Egosarian, DeMaso and Glaister. Everybody plays their part in this band. A true team effort and it shows. These guys were the Rolling Stones shadows. It is a true tradgedy that they never made it. As for the live CD, it is a very true representation of them. The only thing I can fault is the song selection. Only three songs (out of ten) are originals. While nobody could fault their interpretations of some of the great R&B classics, I would rather hear their originals. Where is "Got The Need". Or for that matter why didn't they do a "Best Of Live" from the Free Will and Jukin Bone LP's? After all its the same band with the exception of the drummer change. There are some ass kicking original songs on the Jukin Bone LP. One appears on this CD (Mojo Conqueroo) but songs like "Cara Lynn", "Way Down East" and "Saying It Is Easy" are incredible tunes with that brand of R&R that these guys do so well. According to Mark Doyles website they are going to re-release the Jukin Bone CD (and Free Will) and I will give it a pre-release 5 star rating. It's that good. I am patiently waiting for its release and after it comes out the only thing I'll be lacking is a DVD with VINTAGE Jukin Bone and Free Will performances.

Mark Clapton Doyle Strikes Again
It's fabulous to hear the Free Will again after all these years. Back then, I wanted to believe that Mark Doyle was one of the greatest rock guitarists ever. But I didn't have the experience and perspective to say it for sure. Well, three and a half decades later, I can say it was true. Doyle is one colossal rock-god guitarist, in my opinion ranks in technique up there with Clapton, Page, Lonnie Mack. Mark, it's awesome to hear you, Whiting, and the Free Will again.

Wow! I never thought this could happen! Great!
Like a finely aged bottle of wine FREE WILL storm back onto the scene like a breath of fresh air! There is nothing like some old pros doing it and doing it well. Memo to the band; let's do it up right! Put out the old lp's on CD and hit us with a all-new-material disc as well. What have you got to lose? Thanks for bringing it back. This is heaven on earth!!!!
