The Best Of Fred Thompson And The Guadalajara National Philharmonic

I Can See Clearly Now
The Best Of Fred Thompson And The Guadalajara National Philharmonic
Tortilla Flats Records
1977

From the back cover: This album is proof of what a very few can accomplish when they are of the same mind. From the very beginning, the experts, and the critics, said it could not be done. At times, it almost seemed that they might be right.

  1. Where can we find Fred thompson now? Met him in 1974, went to his home in san diego on 50th street and bought one our albums from him.

  2. Used to watch them in the Sheraton Hotel on Harbor Island, San Diego. Such a fun and talented group, including the late great Joni McGowan, "The world's greatest lady banjo player."

    Fred would close with "If you liked what you saw, tell your friends you saw the Guadalajara National Philharmonic. If you didn't like us, tell 'em you saw the Vienna Boys Choir."
