He also swims in an ocean warmed by the gulf stream & he talks to dolphins. sometimes he ventures into the Big City, to sing at the Night Owl in Greenwich Village or to cut a record in Hollywood, but he does not like that much. they don't have dolphins there. so it is an event when Fred Neil comes to the Big City. the word goes out. "Freddie Neil is in town, have you seen him yet?"  and when he goes into a recording studio to bend over his 12-string guitar and shove his voice into his pocket and sing in that peculiar position of his, he is followed by hundreds of friends. they weren't invited, really. they just knew Freddie Neil was recording  and they had to be there. as on this album, occasionally they'll even sing along with him. some of the best singers & musicians were present when this album was recorded. Fred Neil attracts the best. he is a kind of legend, although he wouldn't like that said of him. as a matter of fact, Fred Neil probably wouldn't like anything said of him. (Capitol has no prepared biography and his longtime friend and manager Herb Cohen isn't even sure how old he is, or where he was born, or a lot of things about Fred Neil) ... He is a quiet man, a family man. almost everything he sings he wrote. he likes to swim and sail and talk to dolphins. He also has a fine voice. and that is all there is to Fred Neil. most people think that's enough." (from the liner notes)
