|Fat Freddys Drop Based On A Ture Story Limited Vinyl LP
Originally released at the beginning of May 2005, Based On A True Story was the biggest selling New Zealand artist album of all time. The debut studio album from Fat Freddy’s Drop, has sold 8-times platinum in New Zealand alone, after debuting at #1 on the NZ Album Charts & holding that position for 11 weeks, and that as an independent release with virtually no promotion. Based On A True Story won a raft of awards, including Best Album at the NZ music award and Album of the Year from Gilles Peterson Worldwide at BBC.
Steeped in dub, reggae & dancefloor electronica, B.O.A.T.S. is rhythm heavy with luscious coatings of jazz, soul & funk, rooted in Aotearoa & delivered with that laidback Island attitude. The album features the huge radio smash Wandering Eye, alongside new versions of live favourites like This Room, Ernie (also known as Willow Tree) & the stunningly reworked Hope, featuring Hollie Smith on vocals, as well as 5 brand new tracks, all mystic supernovas of soul goodness. Based On A True Story features guest appearances from some of NZ’s finest musicians & singers, including Hollie Smith, Ladi6, P Digss (Shapeshifter), Rio Hemopo (Trinity Roots), Riki Gooch (Eru Dangerspiel), Nick Gaffaney, Chris Yeabsley & Aaron Tokona.
