ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
FReebo:

Freebo's success in rock'n’roll has been well documented over the years. From bass player/band member with Bonnie Raitt for a decade to countless studio sessions and tours with artists ranging from John Mayall, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Maria Muldaur and Ringo Starr, to T.V. appearances on "Saturday Night Live," "Midnight Special," and "Muppets Tonight," as well as tuba performances with Dr. John and the legendary Spinal Tap, Freebo has achieved status and respect in a creative and highly competitive field.
Not satisfied with simply resting on his laurels as a top sideman, Freebo has continued to push his creative envelope, and now has evolved into an acclaimed singer/songwriter, with three well received solo CDs to his credit, 1999's "The End Of The Beginning," 2002's "Dog People" (songs about the human/canine connection), and his new CD, "Before The Separation." Released in October 2005, his latest shows Freebo's complete arrival and comfort as a singer/songwriter, with thoughtful and insightful lyrics sung with soul and passion, framed by his acoustic guitar and signature fretless bass, and supported by tasty drums, electric guitar, and harmonica, played by some of rock music's finest musicians.
Freebo's songs span styles from folk, blues, and country to R&B, reggae, and rock 'n' roll, and incorporate themes of love, struggle, triumph, peace, and the journey of life. His live performances, mainly on acoustic guitar, take you on a musical and lyrical ride. Freebo creates an intimate unity with his audience and will likely leave you with a tear in your eye, but with a smile on your face.

A heartfelt masterpiece! Freebo's State of the World Address.
Freebo has woven a masterpiece of beautiful, soulful music with a powerful message. A must have for those of us in dire need of sanity in a not so sane world. Wonderful production throughout with Freebo's unmistakable fretless 5 string bass ringing true.

This CD is amazing, I heard a few of its songs on online radio and knew instantly that I had to own this diverse and poetic collection of songs. These are songs that undeniabley pull at the heart strings and caused me to think about the state of the tworld around me and the state of my own life. Way to go!!



Freebo at his best with BEFORE THE SEPARATION. So heartfelt, sensitive, philosophical. The Song titles speak for themselves..The Beauty Of Life, Soul Mates-sheer poetry.Marcia Landsberg

WOW. I am in awe of Freebo's talent!!!!
Freebo's music is so wonderful that words cannot accurately capture the impact it had on me. I hope to see more music from this amazing artist.

Before the Separation is a unique, heartfelt creation.
I heard Freebo sing Before the Separation at a concert several months ago and at that time I thought it sounded like a good song. So as soon as it came out on a CD, I ordered it and learned all the words. I've performed it with my bass at an open-mike in this area. People love it and so do I. The rest of the cuts are also good listening. Thanks Freebo.

Infallible groove with infallible groove, arrangements and style
This album continues in Freebo's tradition of infallible groove, well-written songs, great arrangements, and a wide variety of musical styles. The Zappa-esque goofy sarcasm of "The Freedom Wall" knocked me sideways and made me laugh; "Stand Up" reminded me of Crosby Stills and Nash from the period when they were doing stuff like "Ohio" and "Long time Gone"; love the horn arrangements and message of "The Beauty of Life" and the messages and imagery of "Before the Separation". I also loved the positive message of "To the Light" and I could imagine that one holding it's own on a pop station next to Stevie Wonder and Billy Joel.

This CD is all heart and soul!
Talk about heart and soul..."Before The Separation" has got it! This CD IS Freebo -- His passion for life, love, politics and everything else. Each song is full of thoughtful delivery...the music and lyrics are powerful and Freebo's vocals are top-notch. I have all of Freebo's CDs but this by far is the best to date. You will not be disappointed! Great job Freebo! I can't stop listening...

Donnie Mills

Before The Separation has become a MUST in my CD collection. From the first song to the last, this CD takes you on an emotional, nostalgic, thought provoking journey to places not visited in a while. FREEBO has outdone himself with this masterpiece!!! Blessings to you my friend!!
