The Free Movement was an American R&B vocal group formed in 1970 in Los Angeles.

History[edit]

They issued a hit single, "I've Found Someone of My Own", on Decca Records in 1971 which climbed to #5 in its 24th week on the Hot 100. The following year, the group signed to Columbia to release a full-length album. They managed to chart a second single, but the group had no further success, despite reaching #7 on the Easy Listening Charts. The Columbia LP contains both singles.

On June 25, 2019, The New York Times Magazine listed The Free Movement among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire.[1]
