About this release

This release contains everything released by Freda Payne on the Invictus label, including the worldwide # 1 “Band Of Gold”. All these albums have been unavailable for many years and never together in such a good value package.

“Band Of Gold” (1970) features the hit title song (UK # 1, US # 3) and “Deeper And Deeper” (UK # 33). “Contact” (1971) features “Cherish What Is Dear To You” and the celebrated anti-Vietnam War song “Bring The Boys Home”. The “Best Of” album contained not only Freda’s hits, but a further five exclusive songs all featured here.

“Reaching Out” (1973) features Freda’s covers of “Rainy Days And Mondays” and Jacques Brel’s “If You Go Away”. The two bonus tracks are the US single mix of “Deeper And Deeper” and an unedited alternate version of “Band Of Gold”.

The booklet is fully annotated by HDH authority Tony Rounce, and features many rare photos
