Thread Name: Fred Neil songs
Subject: RE: Fred Neil songs
There was a thread not too long ago when Fred died, but I can't find it in the Forum search. Maybe someone else will have better luck...there were some fine reminiscences from folks who knew him in Florida, as I recall. I remember Dave Herman used to play his songs a lot on WMMR in Philadelphia, 1969-70 or thereabouts. I always loved "The Dolphins". What a voice....

Wasn't there some kind of to-do with Fred and the "Midnight Cowboy" theme? I know that in the movie Harry Nilsson sings Fred's song, "Everybody's Talkin'", but I remember there was a story about why they didn't use Fred's recording of it.
