Neil's 1966 debut contains some of his best known (and most covered) songs including "Dolphins," "That's The Bag I'm In," and the future theme song to the 1969 blockbuster film "Midnight Cowboy" (and Harry Nilsson hit), "Everybody's Talkin'." Absolutely stunning folk-blues from a Greenwich Village master. Reissued on 180-gram vinyl with a deluxe tip-on jacket.

The cornerstone of my music

Reviewer: Jerry
Fred Neil's soulful baritone, the sound of his twelve string, and some of the best songs written make this album a cornerstone for any collection, not just mine. This is the album that debuted "Everybody's Talkin'" a hit for Nilsson and most recently the album title for Tedeschi/ Trucks Live album, forty seven years later. "The Dolphins" became a standard for the folk rock scene, with renditions by Linda Ronstadt, It's a Beautiful Day, Tim Buckley, Beth Orton, Richie Havens and on and on. Fred does a wonderful melancholy version of Elizabeth Cotton's "Didn't We Shake Sugaree" on this. The album ends with an instrumental blues/raga piece. Although completely different, I find myself comparing it to Paul Butterfield's "East/West." I can't wait for this pressing to come out. It should be at the top of your summer listening list, too
