Despite never being one of the most recognized bands on the British Rock scene, Free always pleased their fans with consistent, but all rather similar, albums. Unfortunately, their work has been over-published on compilations, and All Right Now does little more than most other best of's. Spectrum's attempt at a Free compilation features the hits "All Right Now" and "Fire and Water", as well as a few semi hits, but overall All Right Now is just another run of the mill compilation. There are also noticeable exclusions on this release, including "Walk In My Shadow" and "I'm A Mover" (both from the bands superb debut album), which places All Right Now somewhat below par. Quite why this was ever seen as a needed release by Spectrum is something of a mystery, and particularly today, while more than six compilations of Free are available, is it even less worthwhile.
