Freddie's career (as not only a singer but a songwriter as well) began in the fifties, until the military draft pulled him out of music for a few years. He returned to the United States as a civilian and got a foot in the door at the Brill Building in New York City. After working as a writer and producer for a few years, the Colpix label tried to reshape him into a pop crooner, and they had a hit with "Hey Girl" in 1963. It wasn't until legendary producer Bert berns took on Freddie that his true potential was reached.
After Bert Berns tragic passing, Freddie was without a label (he recorded for Berns' Shout! record label for three years). A few sides on a tiny label was followed up by an LP and this single for ABC records; although this track showed that the voice was still there (in one of his finest performances), ABC didn't have any success with Scott. Freddie released two singles after this, then left the business of being a recording artist and wrote commercial jingles and got into acting.
