Freedom - Black on White CD. FREEDOM was formed in the summer of 1967 by 2 ex PROCOL HARUM members BOBBY HARRISON & RAY ROYER. Both had been dismissed from Procol after "internal disagreements". They became the first clients of Jonathan Weston who had been Procol's Manager (until he had been ousted just before Harrison & Royer).They all had something to prove. They were immediately commissioned by DinoDeLautentis to write the score for an Italian film "Black On White" and in 1968 wrote and recorded 14 tracks in 2 months. The band was then asked to appear in the actual film by the director Tinto Brass playing the songs as a commentary to a film virtually without any dialogue. The film was critically acclaimed at the following years Cannes Film Festival even though it was destined to be an art film.By early 1969 the original Freedom were no more and Bobby Harrison had replaced all the band members apart from himself and entered Orange Studios to record what was treated then as the bands first LP "Freedom At Last".
