His nine-year collaboration with Raitt (1971-1979) began when he attracted Raitt's attention as a member of Philadelphia's Edison Electric Band[2] in the late 1960s. Freebo was soon in great demand for studio work and touring.[3]

In recent years, he has recorded five solo albums: The End Of The Beginning (1999), Dog People (2002), Before The Separation (2006), Something to Believe (2011), and If Not Now When (2015).[4]
