Freddie McGregor Editorial Review reprinted with permission of FreddieMac.org affiliate Amazon.com. Known to his fans as "Freddie Mac" - the long-time reggae crooner's double-disc best of collection leap-frogs indiscriminately among Freddie Mac's rootsy 1970's music, funkier 1980's work, and computer-driven 1990's sounds.
At times, when he waxes rasta righteous tunes like "Natural Collie" and "Bobby Babylon" - he sounds similar to a raagaa-music Jamaican Marvin Gaye; but Mac lover's-rock persona finally outbids his disposition, which is why he sounds more comfortable covering Main Ingredient's "Just Don't Wanna Be Lonely" and The Sandpipers "Guantanamera." During his 1970's era prime-time, Freddie Mac could really do little wrong. Backed by producer Clement Coxsone Dodd and his catchiest rhythms, McGregor's adapted American doo-wop and velvety smooth Rhythm & Blues moves of groups like the Spinners and O'Jays for a suave, commercial sound solid enough to successfully turn even ode lyrics to spiritual joys of running shoes "Jogging" into a hit song! - (slightly edited) - original author Richard Gehr.
