(from So Hip It Hurts)
Vinny Vero does a nice little writeup of a new Robbie Williams retrospective due to be released this fall '10. I totally didn't know that he covered George Michael's 'Freedom' as one of his first solo hits! I kind of fell late on the whole Take That bandwagon in the 90's. I think it was the single 'Back for Good' that peaked my interest. Of course by then, Robbie was well on his way OUT of that whole boy band business. I distinctly remember blasting this track quite often in the boardroom at Sony Music Distribution (my old job back in the day) in Beltsville, MD. Mind you -- Take That were NOT a Sony act. lolol. Anyway -- Robbie was total hotness back then. (He still is IMHO. Also, after watching 'Back for Good' again ... Gary Barlow is a whole bunch of yummy too!) It's quite unfortunate that Robbie never really REALLY hit it big in the US.
