Wild man fischer an evening with wild man fischer full album

An Evening with Wild Man Fischer is a 1968 double LP album by Wild Man Fischer. It was produced by Frank Zappa and released on his Bizarre record label.


The album is split into four different areas on each record side for the type of song it was. Some of side one had audio clips of live street performances where he would ask passerby to hear a song for a dime. Side two is a collection of songs with no background band playing, just having Fischer. Side three is filled with Fischer's first songs, and his stories of making them. The final side included a "psychedelic" rock song called Circles, and The Wild Man Fischer Story, which had Fischer sing about his home life by year.

The copyright is owned by the estate of Frank Zappa, whose widow Gail had refused to release it on compact disc. After Gail's death, the album was finally issued on a double CD in 2016 on the Gonzo Multimedia label. This CD version was copied from a vinyl LP.
