Trading Places present a reissue of Fat Matress's self-titled album, originally released in 1969. As bassist in the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Noel Redding made an indelible impression, but guitar was his chief instrument since the age of 17, when he backed Neil Landon in The Burnettes, and when Landon reconnected with Redding after a spell with Engelbert Humperdinck, Fat Mattress was born with Humperdinck's drummer, Eric Dillon, and bassist/keyboardist Jim Leverton. This indispensable debut was the only LP to feature Redding, the sound a pleasantly-melodic shade of psychedelic folk rock, with a few rough edges. Reproducing the original fold-out poster cover, this edition has four bonus tracks from the same sessions, two of which were issued on a 1969 single, the other two left in the can. 180 gram vinyl; in poster sleeve, faithfully reproducing the original version. Licensed from Cherry Red.
