Frith, Fred
Live in Japan

Frith, Fred: Live in Japan (ReR/ Fred Records)
Label: ReR/ Fred Records    
Released in: USA    

"Concert recordings made at various venues in Japan in 1981 and released by Recommended Records Japan in 1982 in an edition of 1000. Out of print since, though highly sought after, it has now been transferred and remastered by Tom Dimuzio for this official reissue. Fred was just starting out on his long career as a solo improviser when he made this double LP, and still using the now long retired Charles Fletcher custom double-neck guitar (one fretted, one fretless) and the Burns Black Bison, as well as a pilot's throat mike, a violin and (at one venue) the house piano. Some great music - and an historic and important document. "-ReR Megacorp
