"If you can find this cd, it is your best choice for getting a good idea how versitle and talented this singer and his band were. Their best period was the years 1965 - 1967 and this cd covers the best of that time, more than the cd "Absolutely the Best" does."

"John Fred displays much more soul than his hit "Judy in Disguise" would leave one to believe. His New Orleans heritage come through clearly along with a Memphis vibe ala the Boxtops. Not content with one style of music it's refreshing to hear an artist willing to push boundries. His soul-ful, horn-driven version of "Back in the USSR" is the best I've ever heard."
