Freed Man (Deluxe Reissue)
Released on July 24, 2007
"The Freed Man" was one of the first and most crucial releases in the burgeoning lo-fi movement, which would peak in media attention in the mid-90s with the success of
Beck, Guided By Voices, and Pavement. But while it helped inspire and define a global movement, there's little trace of that ambition within these tracks. Sebadoh in this
incarnation are a cherishably intimate experience. The 70-odd minutes of wayward brilliance collected here offer the listener a rare and recommended opportunity to
transport themselves to the weed-hazed bedroom where these scraps, songs, and pranks were recorded, to imbibe deeply of the haywire creativity that went on in these
sessions. This deluxe edition re-issue has been re-mastered and includes a whopping 52 tracks on a single disc, including many that haven't seen the light of day until
now. Liner notes by Lou Barlow and Eric Gafney.
