Fred Neil - Self-Titled, Clear Vinyl LP

Factory Sealed (New)

Clear colored vinyl LP pressing. A moody NYC masterpiece from The Village circa '66! New York folk artist Fred Neil's eponymous second album may not have been a sales smash, but it inspired countless contemporaries, from Jefferson Airplane to Crosby, Stills & Nash, to Harry Nilsson. It was the latter's cover of "Everybody's Talkin'," featured in the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack, that garnered Neil his greatest notoriety, but the album is full of shimmering, surreal gems, like "The Dolphins" and the stunning "Faretheewell." Neil disappeared into reclusiveness not long after, but his legacy as a thoughtful, complex songwriter lives on. With a deeply resonant voice that exudes a hundred different things at once û pain, joy , weariness, and decades of experience û Fred Neil created an influential body of work that far outweighs its modest size. Few artists from the vibrant early æ60s Greenwich Village folk scene had more staying power than this legendary recluse, a figure who inspired the likes of Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, and countless others.
