Freddie Watson

Chicago singer Freddie Watson has just had a couple of 45s released. His first 45 for the tiny Eloys label included the first class deep soul of ListenIts All Over Now. This track has all the right ingredients – strong chord changes, tasteful guitar figures, some good female background harmonies, excellent horns and a forceful, demonstrative vocal from Mr Watson. The flip “Together Baby” is an uptempo conga led tune. On the second release of the Eloys 45 this was replaced with the instrumental version.

Freddie’s other 45 for the slightly larger Sonic label was a gospel number and so is outside my comfort zone.
