5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant 8 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Fred died recently. He was a Bristolian who had a Stand at Ashton Gate, home of Bristol City FC, named after him. He was a folk singer/comedian with a very typical Bristolian sense of humour. There are a few straight songs on here but most of the tracks are very funny, and slightly naughty, comedy numbers with a lot of good pokes at the Folk Music Scene. It helps if you know Bristol and the districts of the City but it is certainly not vital to your rnjoyment.

I find the whole CD brilliant and I've played the tracks from it many times since it arrived. Just remember this is not straight folk music and the humour is a little on the adult side, then buy it and settle down for a really good evenings entertainment. If you enjoyed the Wurzels and Adge Cutler you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrumpy & Western 17 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
Once described as a "West Country Billy Connolly, although he probably came first", Bristolian singer and raconteur Fred Wedlock has been performing in folk clubs and concerts since the late 1960s.

Fred had various albums on small labels issued in the 1970s, including his own Pilluk Produkshuns, and became widely known early in 1981 when his single The Oldest Swinger In Town hit the UK charts, rising to no 6. Unfortunately he has never maintained that success, but the song is almost guaranteed to be played at family gatherings such as wedding receptions, as the middle-aged uncles and aunts take to the floor to gyrate after a few drinks.

Following that success, Fred has had his own UK Channel 4 TV series Wholly Wedlock and acted as a presenter on other West Country TV shows. He also shared a BBC Radio series with Somerset jazz clarinetist Acker Bilk.

His first two albums for the Village Thing label are included in this release, The Folker (1971) and Frollicks (1973) together with other earlier material and are an extremely welcome reissue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 2CD set 22 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A friend first played me a vinyl LP edition of 'Frollicks' years ago and I loved it, I had not heard the 'Folker' album until this purchase. Both albums plus bonus tracks are outstanding, excellent quality and very funny. I thoroughly recommend this CD to everyone with a sense of humour. just brilliant!
