4.0 out of 5 stars The Freed Man, September 9, 2010
This review is from: The Freed Man (MP3 Music)
The other review written for this is very true, and I agree, I'd like to know what the original sequence and album is with additional tracks tacked at the end...I'll probably never get an orginal version, but this version does hold together and flows well for new listeners! Eric Gaffney "paintakingly" complied this according to the liner notes with equal tracks from Lou and him in the end with the album clocking out at the length of a CD can go (just under 80 minutes). The liner notes, pictures, essays, credits and information really give this reissue a lot vitality and more entertainment than a two page sleeve piece of junk booklet. The packaging warrants a purchase of this album. The essays really show the character of each singer-songwriter...as well as the songs and collages on the CD. The Freed Man has a lot of great field recordings, guitar passages, early family recordings, ukulele, percussion, taped TV or radio shows juxtaposed with emotional or humorous songs (and song sketches). It's a work of art of mixed media on your stereo all assembled cheaply (in an intimate fashion).

The Freed Man was never definitive. The Cassette and Vinyl have totally different tracklistings and some of the songs we again redone on The Freed Weed.
