>Back When Singers Were Still Singing: Freddie North


Nashville vocalist Freddie North was a prolific disc jockey on WLAC during the years that it was a premier R&B radio station. North also worked in sales and promotion for Nashboro Records, a prominent gospel label. He moved into the performing end in 1971, cutting some singles for Mankind. “She’s All I Got” was a Top 10 hit in 1971, while the follow-up, “You And Me Together Forever,” made it to #26. (allmusic)

Since there is not much written material about Freddie available, I’ll stick to posting his songs. The man had a marvelous voice!
