Fire Fidelity brings you an LP featuring 24 of the best songs spanning the career of the legendary Jad Fair and his band Half Japanese. Released at the same time as Jad's new album, His Name Itself Is Music, Beautiful Songs (The Best Of The Best Of Jad Fair) is the perfect complement to a prolific and imaginative artist whose gifts keep on giving. This "Best Of" compilation also includes liner notes written by Everett True, who tells us, "I love him for his boundless enthusiasm and shy genius...maybe it's wrong to call Jad naïve because he knows what he's doing, but he has a childlike wonderment that to me is at the core of most great music I can name. The Shaggs, Leadbelly, Jonathan Richman. He makes my feet want to move, and there's no higher compliment. I've seen Jad play concerts with a rolled-up newspaper and upturned wastebasket for rhythm, with just his voice for color. I've also seen Jad play stadiums in precisely the same fashion - with a band behind him, sure, but with the spirit intact - in front of crowds of over 15,000, in support of Nirvana on their final tour." Includes download code for the entire discography of Jad Fair on MP3.
