A wonderful chapter in the career of Freda Payne – a gem of a set recorded for Capitol – and put together a sweet modern soul groove, thanks to tight production work from the legendary Skip Skarborough! Skip's getting a bit of help here from David Crawford on arrangements, who brings in some of the styles he was using on Candi Staton's clubbier work of the time – including an undercurrent of deep soul that really respects the lead vocals – but the overall style is more in the sophisticated midtempo mode that made so much of Scarborough's work so great – an approach that really works well for Freda's vocals in the years after her earlier pop hits, and helps give her sort of a newfound majesty. Titles include "Pullin Back", "Tell Me Please", "Just The Thought Of You", "Storybook Romance", "Livin For The Beat", and "Falling In Love". CD features a bonus single mix of "Happy Days Are Here Again/Happy Music".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
