With credits like the ones on this 45, you know it´s going to be a winner. Written by the former Motown songwriting giants brothers Eddie & Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier and sung by souldiva Freda Payne the label looks promising enough. And when the stylus hits the vinyl, no one need to feel disappointed. Out comes three minutes of wonderful soul music, a vintage 1973 offering from the masters themselves.
Freda Payne was mainly a jazz singer in the 60s before joining the Invictus label (owned by Holland-Dozier-Holland of course) in 1969. She hit the charts right away with "Band Of Gold" which was a U.K. number one in 1970, and reached #3 on the U.S. charts. Although she never had a hit as big as "Band Of Gold" again, she scored once again with the Vietnam-war inspired song "Bring The Boys Back Home" shortly after. She has since stayed in the music buisness and still performs throughout the U.S. as well as having a career in acting on the side.
