Frith, Fred - Cheap At Half The Price

Remixed and remastered from the original 4-track masters. "Freds third LP for the US label Ralph Records, back in 1983, was a collection of gloriously direct pop songs, recorded on a four-track home studio system. Fred played almost all of the instruments: guitar, six string bass, Casio 101 keyboard, violin, xylophone, and home mades. There are some great production ideas, with intrusive samples (Ronald Reagan appears in a memorable moment), and guitars snaking, bending and sliding around the mix. Its quite extraordinary, given the sound quality and the vibrancy of the production ideas, that this was recorded on a four-track recorder. Fred is joined for cameos on bass by Bill Laswell and Tina Curren, and Hans Bruinnsson provides some great drum samples." [Fred]
