Hence many of the songs were written solely by Rodgers, although some are credited to the entire band as a symbolic gesture, including the single " Wishing Well ". Bundrick wrote two of the album's eight tracks. Meanwhile, Kossoff was extremely resentful of "Snuffy" Walden being brought in as a session musician to provide guitar tracks when the other band members' patience began to break.
He is uncredited on the hit single "Wishing Well", however, the lead guitar on the track is unmistakably Kossoff's, and Kirke has confirmed this. The credits on the album sleeve are inaccurate; Kossoff plays on the whole of side 1 and the final track on side 2, "Seven Angels".
Walden's guitar appears on tracks 2, 3, and 4 of side 2, so "Seven Angels" features both him and Kossoff. Walden also appears on some alternate mixes of "Wishing Well", but not on the version released for the UK single and album. Island Records boss Chris Blackwell disliked the band's initial mix of the album and drafted regular engineer Andy Johns to solve the problem; in January the album was ready for release. The album was, by Free's standards, a huge success.
