Frith, Fred

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Cheap At Half The Price
New - LP - FF 8356
Sealed 1983 Original (Shrink Wrap Is Open At Top, But LP Reamins Sealed). “Frith's Last Album For Ralph Records Stepped Back From The Progressions Of Speechless To A Concoction Of Pop-Like Ditties And Instrumentals Recorded At Home On A Four Track. And For The First Time, Frith Sings, In A Strange High-Pitched Tone. A Little More Production And Sound Manipulation And This Could Almost Be A Residents Album, Circa 1978. As A Pop-Song Writer, Frith Is Okay; He Shrouds Socialist Discussion In Lyrics About Dogs And Insects While Keeping The Song Structure Simple And Repetitive. "Too Much Too Little" And "Some Clouds Don't" Are Whimsical Songs, Simple Beauty Overshadowed By Fear Of Reagan-Administration Nuclear Holocaust. Frith Saw The Danger In The Upbeat Early '80s As Threatening To The Lessons Of History And A Derailment To The Cause; One Wonders If The Sunny Moments Of The Album Aren't Actually One Big Joke. The Instrumentals Reside Less In The Pop Vein, But Like "The Great Healer" Or "Heart Bares" They Don't Go Further Than Moody Experiments In Frith's Home Studio. Only "Absent Friends," A Traditional Swedish Melody Rearranged By Frith, Breaks That Mold.” – Ted Mills, All Music Guide more

Gravity
Used - LP - FF 8057
1980 US Original Vinyl Rarity. Avant Garde Rock/Jazz. Small Creas & Bump Top Left. "This One Of The Most Important Guitar-based, Experimental Guitar Titles From The Avant-guitarist And Founding Henry Cow Member Fred Frith. Gravity Is The Most Lighthearted Of Frith's Solo Output, Actually. It Is Frith's Celebration Of Dance From All Cultures. Perhaps It Is The Streak Of Dance-music Appreciation That Caused Him To Collaborate On The Musical Score To Sally Potter's The Tango Lesson. Percussion Is Light And Largely Marked With Handclaps. The Guitars Sound Twangy And Bring Folk-instrumentation To Mind. Violins And Horns Add A Jubilant Feel To The Music. Many Musicians Help Vary The Sound Of Each Tracks And Some Of These Guests Are From Samla Mammas Manna, The Muffins, And Henry Cow. Gravity Is An Entertaining And Multi-cultural Pocket Folk Festival." AMG - Tom Schulte. more

Speechless
Used - LP - FF 108
Hard To Find 1981 Reissue On Cream & Black 2nd Label. In Shrink Wrap. Cut At KM With "Hello Fred" Inscribed In The Dead Wax. “This Is One Of The Most Important Experimental Guitar-Based Titles From Avant Guitarist And Founding Henry Cow Member Fred Frith. Frith's Second Solo Album, Speechless, Includes Appearances By Etron Fou Leloublan, Massacre, And Bill Laswell. This Is A Studio Frankenstein Of Live Clips And Found Sounds. While Frith Attests To The Occurrence Of Many "Happy Accidents," The Album Comes Across Confidently And More Often More Coherent Than Merely Challenging. This Is Often Cited As Frith's Best Solo Record, And Its Inspired Manipulations Hold Up Under Repeated Scrutiny. There Is A Bit Of European Folk Influence Here, Too, But Not As Obvious As On Gravity.” – AMG - Tom Schulte. more
