Fred have published during his lifetime only a single ("Salvation Lady" / "a love song"). Another sorts, in the 4 years professionally with cut material disappeared in the drawer. On a lucky (for all) was discovered in a German flea market by World In Sound, an record label and shortly after, their music catalog was re-released.
In the new millennium appeared two archive CDs with studio recordings from fred. While "Notes on a Picnic" includes pieces recorded 1973-74 in New York, including the 2001 self-titled debut CD appeared the band older material which was eventually recorded 1971-73. The sound quality is good, but sometimes it rushes a little tape or are there slight disturbances.
Procol Harum, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, King Crimson, Traffic and dive on in there written by DeChristopher Beihefttext. Actually, I can not this band from the music by fred hear (most probably Jethro Tull - from time to time). Jazz rock music a la Mahavishnu Orchestra was found in the band's music to some places until 1973, such as "Notes on a Picnic" and the live album "Live at The Bitter End" show. To "Fred" however, there is to hear a still rooted in the 60s, psychedelic-relaxed Protoprog reminiscent occasionally to the music of various West Coast formations (Quicksilver, Jeffersson Airplane, Iron Butterfly), which is at the same time characterized by a slightly angejazzte atmosphere and the violin with Roses gets quite personal note. Longer, complex numbers here mostly presented living from the varied interplay of keys (organ, piano, electric piano, harpsichord), fuzziger electric guitar and violin, Rose enriched with pleasant vocals and driven by the rhythm section laid-loosely be . There folky-rock influences it (the beautiful "By the Way" - with appropriate fiddling), mildly psychedelic guitar escapades and now and then all right jazz rock objections (in the second half of "a love song" and "Wind Words" for example).
"Fred" is a very nice album with almost forgotten music from the early days of the U.S. Prog, which is recommended to all those with a mixture of psychedelic bluesy West Coast sounds, (Caravan) and Jethro Tull (without flute, but violin), equipped with a small shot of Zappa, can imagine!
