"TGIF"

     It seems like a joke: cover the theme songs to four popular early 90's sitcoms and release the results for hipster consumption. In reality, this release is a painstakingly crafted tribute to the work of Jesse Frederick.

     In 1971, a 19-year-old Frederick recorded his self-titled debut for legendary manager Albert Grossman's Bearsville Records. In the wake of the relative silence following the album's release, Frederick recorded a pair of follow-up albums for two different labels - neither of which ever saw the light of day.

     By the late 1980's, Frederick had found his way into the world of TV theme music - composing a number of memorable themes with longtime writing partner Bennett Salvay. We feel that the songwriting, arrangement, and density of craftsmanship on display in these four short themes is legitimately mindblowing.

     Fittingly, syndication ensures that each of these compositions will receive perpetual airplay -- resulting in a uniquely modern, pseudo-anonymous eminence.

     Korin Cox of The Hard Lessons contributes guest vocals on two of the four tracks. Also includes a 5 minute 'Making of' documentary video.
