Fred Neil

Fred Neil - Tear Down the Walls / Bleecker & MacDougal Fred Neil was a folk singer who used to hang out with the likes of Bob Dylan and Karen Dalton. The first album is just ok. He sings with Vince Martin. (I need to check Martin's solo material out.) Tear down the walls is the best song and my late mom liked it which is why I'm partial to it. The second album is better. Fred Neil became a recluse after the music business. The Other Side to this Life is a mysterious song and it's pretty cool. Fred Neil also originally wrote the song "Everyboy's Talkin" which Harry Nilsson did a really good cover of.
