Live & Then Some
Fran Snyder's long-awaited live acoustic album, with some bonus material. If you don't have any Fran Snyder CDs in your collection, this would be the place to start. Fran is known for his compelling live and acoustic performances, of which, 7 are included on this disc. The CD starts with 'Ruined,' a playful, moody and unique studio track. The second song 'I Left the Seat Up' is a hilarious blues tune which is already a favorite on the Doctor Demento radio show. --- The CD closes with three songs from previous Fran Snyder releases. 'Between the Lines' is from the 'stir' CD, which is a blend of acoustic and full-band recordings in the pop-rock vein. 'A Night Like This' is from the CD 'Six Strings and Vinyl,' Fran's adventurous foray into combining urban beats ( and turnablism ) with groovy, acoustic music. The result is a very unique sound, presented on this disc much like it sounded when played live, by an energetic duo which at times featured several notorious Atlanta DJs including DJ Lord of Public Enemy. The album closes with 'Flyswatter Soup,' another hilarious Fran Snyder composition which also closed out 'Five Little Monkeys and Other Kidstuff!,' Fran's first CD for children and parents. Each of these CDs is available on CDBaby.
