Fred Neil

Today's recollection is a folk singer named Fred Neil. I have no idea where I first heard Fred Neil, but his rich, deep voice, his wide variety of musical styles featuring slow ballads through loud upbeat songs accompanied by his 12-string guitar has left a lasting audio impression on me. Recently I tracked down a number of recordings that brought back great memories. I present them for your listening pleasure.

Five songs of Fred Neil (15:16)
  1. The Other Side of This Life
  2. Travelin' Shoes
  3. Gone Again
  4. A Little Bit of Rain
  5. The Water is Wide
