Will Downing - Free 1988

4th & Broadway 12 BRW 112

Multi talented Will Downing released his debut album, Will Downing, in 1988. Alongside A Love Supreme, In My Dreams and a host of other superb tracks was a cover of Deniece Williams' Free. This classic was originally written by Deniece Williams, Henry 'Hank' Redd, Nathan Watts & Susaye Greene (The Supremes). It was Williams' breakthrough single, as a solo artist, hitting the Number 1 spot on the singles chart for two weeks in May 1977. It has been covered by many but few can compete with the stunning original. The most recent was by Marcus Miller for his album of the same name in 2007. Miller enlisted the the talents of Corinne Bailey Rae to provide the vocal.

Six years after Downing's performance of Free from his debut album featuring A Love Supreme, Chante Moore recorded Free for her album, A Love Supreme. Her version used an interpretation of the Commodores - Sail On but was still easily forgotten. Downing's cover is easily the most successful and stands tall alongside Deniece Williams original. Featuring additional production and remixing by Gail 'Sky' King, this is Will Downing's version. Superb!
