Eccentric folk artist Charlie Tweddle's  self-released 1974 LP Fantastic Greatest Hits,
a unique blend of psychedelic  country and tape experiments.

Charlie felt sure his new style of music  would take the world by storm – it didn't work out that way.
Recorded in  1971, 500 copies of Fantastic Greatest Hits were pressed in 1974 under the name  Eilrahc Elddewt with extravagant packaging.
The LP was hand-distributed and  received only minimal positive feedback; sales were poor.

Why? Well for one, side two of the album is  25 minutes of chirping crickets and sound fragments.
The abrupt patches of  dead air on side one probably didn't help much either.
More than a few of  these albums were returned as "defective".
Of course, all of these production  moves were intentional.

The CD was transferred from a copy of the  original album.
It includes six unreleased tracks from the same period as  well as all of the original artwork in a fold-out digipak.
We hope you find  it as nice and as interesting as we do.
