Bobby Freeman


Bobby Freeman’s energetic vocals punctuated two R&B dance strikes in the past due ’50s and mid-’60s. The SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA performer began the Romancers being a 14-year-old and afterwards formed the Western world Coastline Vocaleers, whose audio was a lot more pop-oriented compared to the Harlem band of exactly the same name. Freeman’s one “Would you like to Dance” simply skipped topping the R&B graphs in 1958, residing at amount two for 14 days (amount five pop). It had been among three strikes he liked that season on Josie, although “Betty Lou Got a fresh Footwear” and “Require Your Appreciate” just reached amounts 20 and 29, respectively. “C’mon and Swim” parlayed the 1964 dance trend into his second TOP R&B hit, achieving amount five. However the follow-up visited water once all too often, as “S-W-I-M” fizzled at amount 56. Both had been for Autumn. It had been also Freeman’s last stop by at the R&B graphs.
