an avant-garde rock masterpiece 26 Sept. 2010
By Remy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to see the 2-piece incarnation (Fred Frith and Tom Cora) of Skeleton Crew perform in a small club during the mid 1980s. I've seen lots of concerts by a variety of artists and it was probably the most remarkable. They each played a wide array of instruments. Imagine two one-man bands, each going full-bore playing different tunes but meshing perfectly.

Of the two albums included I probably find Learn To Talk the most compelling but The Country of Blinds is also very good. The sound quality of this release is extraordinary. The addition of bonus tracks makes this album a must-have for anyone who enjoys the work of Frith and/or Cora, or who appreciates challenging music played exceptionally well.
Cool 2-CD Set on Fred Records 8 Oct. 2007
By Robert Carlberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fred Frith has re-released the two Skeleton Crew (Fred & Tom Cora with Zeena Parkins on #2) LPs in deluxe sound and with bonus tracks. I think(?) this basically releases everything they recorded, doesn't it?

Anyway the sound is magnificent, the music is terrific and the chance to have everything together in one boxed set is not to be missed. Tom, we miss you buddy.
Great 6 Feb. 2013

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Great reissue of two classic albums on one CD. Fantastic! Perfect for Fred Frith fans, or if you are new to his work this is a great place to start.
