This was an era in which people danced to simple music such as that which is on this CD the frug, the hully gully, the watusi, the mashed potatos, the jerk, the swim, the stroll, and so on are examples of the dances of that time period.
People wanted to have a good time. And, that is what is on this CD. But, who cares? For those who simply want to relax and enjoy the beat, this CD is a worthwhile investment in a time that has, unfortunately, passed. The girls generally danced better than the boys. We wouldn't admit it, but they could jump rope and we couldn't. If your musical tastes are undemanding, you might find that this CD will bring a smile to your face. And A Slim Album. Born on June 13, in San Francisco, Freeman had actually started out in with a group known as The Romancers who cut several unsuccessful sides with the Dootone label.
While this album gives you all his hit singles but the one noted above, along with two flipsides, it is skimpy by today's standards with just 12 tracks, and could easily become a 5-star CD by expanding to 20 selections with the addition of I Do The Shimmy Shimmy, it's B-side, and the other missing flipsides.
Whenever I hear this rockin cat he reminds me of the great Buddy Holly. That same kind of tone and energy without the hiccups of course. This is a great cd and he should've been a bigger star and should be remembered a whole lot better on today's Oldies stations regardless of what music research or some consultant infactuates.
Before we proceed with the review, please note that this CD is for the Hoodoo Records CD release and NOT other releases with the same title, as some of the reviews appear to be for a different product. Bobby Freeman was born in and was singing in a group called The Romancers in To some, Bobby Freeman might be considered a one-hit wonder but on the basis of this he could and should have had more success. Although his later releases were also of good quality, aside from a few minor hits they were sadly overlooked.
There are a total of 9 original compositions of his too, showing that Freeman could write some great songs even at his young age.
Without knowing too much about Bobby Freeman prior to the purchase of this CD, it was considered to be a gamble. The gamble had paid off though and there are lots of obscure and forgotten ballads and Rock 'n' Roll for you to enjoy, and in fact I've enjoyed every recording on here which is exactly what you want from a CD.
As with all Hoodoo Records released, there's plenty of reading material and lots of rare pictures included within the sleeve notes and the sound quality being good too. When Bobby Freeman passed away in January , there was little mention of him and the music that was left behind. Judging by the energetic style of his recordings, this was a man who deserved a lot more than the success he had, and was definitely more than the 'one hit wonder' as he's often categorised as.
Good collection of Bobby Freeman's Josie output, with a few King sides thrown in. The folks at Hoodoo decided to use a stereo version on some tracks and I would've preferred good old mono. The stereo mix seems off balance and Bobby's voice is almost inaudible on a couple of tracks. Report abuse.
