MY BABY * THE FREEMAN BROTHERS * SOUL 35011 * USA
The only release by The Freeman Brothers on the Soul label is, like many early Tamla's, a rousing celebration of love. How the artists at Tamla managed to create such an enormously optimistic and heart pumping sound big enough to straddle the globe in that tiny basement on Michigan Avenue - it can't be just that pronounced military marching drum beat! - will remain a mystery of 20th century art. The only other cut I know by the brothers (if that's what they are) is the beautiful ballad I'm Counting On You released on Mala 485.
