12 String Guitar CD's


Les Fradkin- "Goin' Back" - RRO-1009

Take a trip back with the Jangle Pop release you'll want as a must have. This CD features Les' renowned Rickenbacker 12-String Guitar stylings with some special surprises! Featured guest performers on this release include Richie Furay ( Buffalo Springfield, Poco) guest duetting with Les on Richie's all new composition "Only To You." The original members of The Left Banke (Mike Brown on Piano, Tom Finn on Bass and Background Vocals, Steve Martin on Guitar and Background Vocals and George Cameron on Drums and Background Vocals) appear with Les on a remixed version of his 1972 composition "I Could Make It Last Forever"- a crucial, heretofore, never heard missing piece of Left Banke history. This recording even includes Mike's father Harry Lookofsky on Violins so the entire crew from "Walk Away Renee" fame is on board for this extremely commercial piece of pop history. And Guitarist Mick Ronson (ex-David Bowie, Ian Hunter Band) shows his lead guitar prowess on "Spare Change". Les Fradkin "I Could Make It Last Forever" Video on You Tube! Mick Ronson and Hilly Michaels stepped in the studio way back in 1981 with Les and the resuls are found on "Spare Change." Les also offers a selection of great Jangle covers from songs that influenced him as a 12-string guitarist: "The Byrds' "Goin' Back" and "So You Want To Be A Rock And Roll Star" as well as songs from The Searchers ("When You Walk In The Room"), The Honeycombs ("Have I The Right"-Joe Meek fans-take note!), The Hollies ("I Can't Let Go"), The Left Banke ("Walk Away Renee") Bob Dylan and Procol Harum. Les' cover of Bob Dylan's "I Don't Want To Do It" is a must hear!
