The Golden World Story
A Strong Production Team

Freddie Gorman

The Adorables disc was significant for another reason. It would be the first time that the name Freddie Gorman would appear on a Golden World disc.

Freddie's recording career can be traced way back to 1955 when he cut a 45 with The Quailtones for the Josie label.

Another two 45's were cut with the Fideltones before he went solo in 1961 for Berry Gordy's Miracle label, with "The Day Will Come".

In March 1964 Freddie and Bob Hamilton would produce Golden World's biggest success with "Just Like Romeo and Juliet".

Between October 1964 and March 1965 Freddie would also perform as a solo artist for Ric-Tic with "In A Bad Way" and "Take Me Back".

His final written piece for the Golden World group was by coincidence another Adorables disc, "Devil In His Eyes" which was the flip of "Ooh Boy". That was in August 1965.

Freddie would write 18 of the sides released under the Golden World umbrella but would soon return to Berry Gordy, as part of a group called The Originals.

Today The Originals are legendary amongst Motown fans for their beautiful songs on the Soul label.
