Fred Neil was the eminence grise of 1960’s Folkrock….the most famous unknown songwriter in the world….a reclusive, truculent man, who vehemently shied away from stardom….so admired by his contemporaries that his songs are everywhere covered….by Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, the Lovin’ Spoonful, Tim Buckley, Jefferson Airplane (who also wrote two songs *about* Fred!)….and most famously I suppose by Harry Nilsson, whose megahit cover of “Everybody’s Talking” (from the soundtrack of “Midnight Cowboy”) means that Fred Neil is the writer of one of the seven most played songs in the world!….Not bad for a man who deliberately retreated from fame at the height of his powers to pursue Dolphin research! “He taught me everything that was music” says David Crosby….and here are some of his best recordings, produced for Capitol by Nik Venet, the almost-pop-structured “Fred Neil” album, and it’s experimental follow up “Sessions”…..Pure genius….I quite seriously defy anyone not to love Fred Neil! This is A *very* expanded Revola classic which contains his best known songs “Everybody’s Talking” and “The Dolphins”. A must for folk, folkrock and general music fans everywhere!
