FREDA PAYNE She is best known for her song, "Band Of Gold" which made it to #3 on the charts. Her follow-up song that I truly don't remember hearing at #12 on the chart was "Bring The Boys Home". "'Bring the Boys Home' was a hit for Freda Payne in 1971 during the Vietnam War era. It was an anti-war song which was aimed at the sending of troops to fight in an increasingly unpopular war. The song came out at a time when soldiers were returning to America dead and in body bags. A higher than normal amount of the soldiers were black. The soldiers were only boys at the age of 20, which was the average age that many of them were killed. In spite of the healthy amount of airplay it received in the US, the US Command from the American Forces Network banned it. The reason was that it would be of benefit to the enemy."
