Noel Redding & Friends

"Thank you, Goodnight & Gud Luck"

His Last Album released on Vinyl and CD.

The Music Room

Noel David Redding was born in Folkestone, Kent, England on Christmas day 1945.
For 5 years before he died on 11th May 2003... we spent many days and nights recording in
'The Music Room' at his home in Ardfield,
West Cork, also in Dublin and London culminating in this, his Last Album, which was mixed with Noel a year before he passed away. We decided to initially release it as a Limited Edition Vinyl Album... followed by a CD of the original album recorded over this period plus a good few outtakes, remixes and live performances

Noel Redding

Like an A and a B side of a record, there were two Noel guitar legends well, several... actually... Here's two...

First chap is the whizzing here and whizzing there fellow, who made up a third of The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Dig, our seventies rock had come to audition as guitarist with Eric Burdon’s psychedelic band ... The New Animals, and he has the curly hair so that’s

a plus and as long as he can play bass guitar alright…

well, he’s got the gig. Thus psychadelic rock became Experienced,

and played the bass better than alright, too, fuck yeah ! ....

Jimi, Noel and Mitch playing together was mainly magic...

For a while they became the biggest group in the world, but first off, psychadelic rock invites Jimi to his mum... Margaret’s place in Kent... that first Christmas in Britain for Jimi...

Jimi’s never seen an open fireplace before...

is digging it mega... chortles joyously...

''Let me stand next to your fire'' and onwards…

The other Rock and Roll is the man from Clonakilty in Co Cork. He found this place away from the lunacy, the calming balm away from the music business crocodiles. In Clon celebrity

is acknowledged but never bowed to.

Oh, Clon folk were proud of Noel... delighted that he’d found his home there. More than that, they loved him.

You’d see him there on a drizzly street corner, his plastic bag in his hand, making his way to De Barras... and people would notice him but there was no fuss. Noel Redding was at home.

During these Irish years Noel continued to make music...

much of it unheard till now...

Noel Redding has already contributed greatly to the music of our lives. Here’s more....

Bless you, Noel, and thank you.
