What does it sound like?:
Fish continues his programme of reissues with this 3 cd expanded version of his 2001 effort Fellini Days.
This is a somewhat neglected album from a rather sticky period of his solo career, but it does warrant a reappraisal all these years down the line.
As with the other albums in this series, the 3 cds are split between the original album, demos and live recordings.
The original album is the strongest of the three, with the lengthier songs like 3D, Pilgrims Address, Tiki 4 and Clock Moves Sideways standing out in particular.
The demos on cd 2 are mainly instrumentals this time round, while there are some good live renditions of the material on the third cd.
The package comes with a very good booklet with extensive notes on the album’s recording and lyrics etc from the man himself.
