Freddie Hughes had one of the great falsetto soul voices of the era - pleading, celebratory, and always dripping with soul. The Oakland-based artist was popular in his home region of the Bay Area but did not achieve national recognition until the sweet soul ballad 'Send My Baby Back' was an R&B smash in 1968. On the hindlegs of the hit, Wand Records commissioned an album, which has subsequently become one of the most sought-after soul long players of the era. Stuffed with classy performances such as the uptown ballad "He's No Good" and northern fave "We Gotta Keep On", the album demonstrates the versatility of Hughes remarkable talent. 24 track colleciton features 12 bonus tracks to go with the original 12.
