About this item
Fred Neil is one of those characters whose enigmatic personaes often overshadow their music. His story resonates with the sort of details familiar to fans of Syd Barrett, Nick Drake or Tim Buckley. Bags of talent, a maverick spirit and TOO MANY DRUGS. Neil had a superb rich baritone voice and these early sixties recordings capture his charismatic presence and show his compelling songwriting abilities. His recent death from cancer ends speculation that his 25 year silence could end, but the quality and richness of this disc will do much to satisfy those interested in discovering this huge lost talent.
