I O U - Freeez

The British group Freeez consisted of John Rocca, Peter Maas, Andy Stennet and Paul Morgan. Their biggest hit 'I O U' was recorded in New York and produced by Arthur Baker. It was used in the 1984 movie 'Beat street', featuring the hip hop culture of the early Eighties. The single peaked at number 2 in the UK and the Netherlands.

Although I hated the song when it was in the chart, I started appreciating its charm in the Nineties, when chart music had deteriorated so badly that even the bad songs from the Eighties turned out to be extremely good by comparison.

My collection: 7" single no. 2577
Found: Record fair, Rotterdam, December 16, 1995
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'I O U' / 'I dub U'
