What is Fred Records?

*Fred Records is an archival label for my earlier work - a place where you can be find re-issues of previously available LPs or CDs, as well as work that's never been available before concert recordings, music for dance and theater productions, installations, and whatever else seems appropriate.
So far we have released nineteen titles, with more coming soon.

*My philosophy of reissues is that they should be heard as closely as possible to the way they were intended when they were originally released.
This may involve remixing in a few cases where either the original budget or time constraints made it hard to do what I wanted, but mostly it is a question of meticulously re-mastering from the original tapes or state of the art digital transfers whenever possible. In charge of this job is my long-time friend and collaborator Myles Boisen, of the Headless Buddha Mastering Lab in Oakland.

*Fred Records works in partnership with ReR Records, UK, distributed by all the companies who work with ReR Megacorp - ReRUSA, Orkhestra, Locus Solus, Downtown Music Gallery, and so on.
CDs can be ordered either directly from ReR and their various international distributors, or from any online record retailer, or from your favorite local store. See Links page for useful web addresses.

*In addition, ReR offers special deals for subscribers, including a booklet with interviews about each set of 10 releases. For further information please visit their website.
