Last copies, reduced price. Japanese pressing of his 1965 folk classic from the Elektra period, his second album for that label. Neil has been seriously ignored in the CD era and this is highly in demand. Originally from Florida, Neil was heavily factored in the early days of the East Village folkie boom (Bob Dylan played harmonica for him at Cafe Wha? in 1961). His recording career went from 1964 to about 1971, peaking with Everybody's Talking on Capital (featured in the film Midnight Cowboy). Bleecker & MacDougal features some legendary tracks like "Other Side to This Life" & "Travelin' Shoes" and is fine document of Fred's deep-bass voice, guitar & harmonica accompaniment-- that in some ways could be seen as a crucial link between the early folk style of Dylan and the more exploratory works of say, Tim Buckley.
