All Right Now by Free
Description: All Right Now EDIT
“All Right Now” is a rock single by the English band Free. The song, released in the summer of 1970, hit #1 on the UK rock music charts, #2 on the UK singles chart and #4 on the U.S. charts. “All Right Now” originally appeared on the album Fire And Water, which Free recorded on the Island Records label, formed by Chris Blackwell. In 1991, the song was remixed and re-released, reaching #8 on the UK singles chart.
“All Right Now” was a #1 hit in over 20 territories and was recognised by ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) in 1990 for garnering 1,000,000 plus radio plays in the US by late 1989, and in 2000 an Award was given to Paul Rodgers by the British Music Industry when “All Right Now” passed 2,000,000 plus radio plays in the UK.
The song has recently found a home as part of the encore set for Queen + Paul Rodgers. Before “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions”, it offers the fans one more chance to sing along. Curiously, one of the engineers during the recordings of “All Right Now” was Roy Thomas Baker, who would later become Queen’s producer (he mixed “Killer Queen”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Don’t Stop Me Now” among others).
According to drummer Simon Kirke, “All Right Now” was written by bassist Andy Fraser in the Durham Students’ Union building, Dunelm House. However, Paul Rodgers has stated unintentionally whilst performing with Queen that he wrote the lyrics to “All Right Now”. This remark can be heard on the Queen + Paul Rodgers CD, Return of the Champions, when “All Right Now” starts.
