Freely - the second of the two 1980s Andy albums - contains eight tracks recorded in Jamaica and London, all written and produced by Bob. Included are the Tuff Gong single "You Think It's A Joke" along with I-Anka singles "Level Vibes" (JA 7") and "Cherry" (UK 12"). There are fresh versions of two classics, "Sun Shines For Me" and "I Don't Want to See You Cry". MAD PROFESSOR mixes seven of the tracks.

NME:
`Andy's soulful voice cuts loose on a selection of originals. A track like "No Video" says more about the poor than any number of earnest Geneva speeches.'

Q MAGAZINE:
`Straight-up, classy reggae...reinforces Bob's standing as Jamaica's most soulful vocalist.'

Tower Records' TOP:
`If "No Video" was sung by Tracy Chapman it would be hailed as a classic.'

REGGAE REPORT:
`Bob Andy is determined to stamp his art with the mark of excellence.'

THE VOICE:
`A real gem ... I challenge anyone to make a better album this year.'
