EXPANDED RELEASE FOR THE DEBUT ALBUM BY NOEL REDDING’s BAND WITH EIGHT BONUS TRACKS
EXTENSIVE BOOKLET WITH PHOTOS & LINER NOTES
Recorded in 1969, “Fat Mattress” was the eponymous debut album by the band formed by Jimi Hendrix Experience bass guitarist Noel Redding. Recorded in late 1968 / early 1969, the album evoked the influences of the time, touching upon styles pioneered by groups such as Traffic (whose member Chris Wood guested on the record).
A superb piece of Psychedelic rock in its own right, “Fat Mattress” failed to get the attention it deserved at the time of release (despite a tour as support act to the Hendrix Experience) but has subsequently been hailed as a classic of the era.
This Esoteric reissue has eight bonus tracks comprising non-album singles, mono mixes, studio out-takes and an unreleased solo single by Fat Mattress’ Jim Leverton.
