by Ron WynnBobby Freemans energetic vocals punctuated two R&B dance hits in the late 50s and mid-60s. The San Francisco performer started the Romancers as a 14 year old and later formed the West Coast Vocaleers, whose sound was much more pop-oriented than the Harlem group of the same name. Freemans single Do You Want to Dance just missed topping the R&B charts in 1958, staying at number two for two weeks (number five pop). It was one of three hits he enjoyed that year on Josie, although Betty Lou Got a New Pair of Shoes and Need Your Love only reached numbers 20 and 29, respectively. CMon and Swim parlayed the 1964 dance craze into his second Top Ten R&B hit, reaching number five. But the follow-up went to the water once too often, as S-W-I-M fizzled at number 56. Both were for Autumn. It was also Freemans final visit to the R&B charts.
