I decided to check it out post haste and I was not dissapointed in the least. The whole album is a groovy, singer songwriter affair... folk rock style, on the strange side. Fred Neil has a unique singing style, somewhere from outer space but down to earth at the same time... and the whole album will have you in a mellow trance,,,, but not too sleepy or dull.. a bit of sadness drapes its way over the vibe...but its all in a refreshing way... you may recognize the track EVERYBODYS TALKIN AT ME, as it has been covered a few times... Freds is the original and stands out as quite good and has its own vibe that is unlike any of the more popular covers I've heard.
What I dig the most here is how addictive the sound becomes. This is an album that unfolds the more you listen, and gets better....
I first heard the music of Fred Neil via Mark Lanegan's amazing cover of Badi Da off of I'll Take Care Of You.
Like Lanegan, Fred Neil has a very gritty, masculine sounding voice that adds a layer of depth to the material.
My understanding is that he emerged from the same 60's folk scene that produced Bob Dylan and a few others.
That's The Bag I'm In is my favorite song on this album. The most famous song is probably Everybody's Talkin', which was covered by Harry Nilsson. The closing song on side B, Cynicrustpetefredjohn Raga is also pretty great. It's sort of a blues-folk jam session, and wouldn't sound out of place on a Velvet Underground record.

Fed has a mysterious / one of a kind voice that needs to be heard an enjoyed. This is late at night music, which meanders from song to song. It's like a warm blanket.Published 5 months ago by Ron Chappuis
Yes, I like it very much, but the packaging was odd. When I pried it out of the container, it cracked in the center. I can play the first few songs, but not the end. Odd! Read morePublished 17 months ago by mercedes
