Les Fradkin in Keyboard Magazine
June 4, 2008
Les' CD "One Link Between Them" receives a rave review from Keyboard Magazine columnist Robbie Gennet:
"To say that Les Fradkin’s album One Link Between Them is synth-intensive is like saying the sun is kinda hot. Fradkin layers his tunes with inspiring levels of synthesizer sounds and melodies, mixed for optimal keyboard impact. The opening synth salvos on “Lift Off” are in your face and stereo-riffic, as are the big buzzing sawtooth waves and lively percussion on his far-out cover of Duke Ellington’s “Caravan.” Fradkin makes great use of the Roland GR-1 guitar synth throughout, and there is ample usage of Arturia’s Moog Modular V and Jupiter-8V soft-synths, as well as the GForce M-Tron and, evidently, a real Mellotron as well! Fradkin has sequenced and shredded his way into 2008 with one of the most adventurous digital recordings we’ve heard in a while. Get your synth freak on and lift off with Les Fradkin!"

Napoleon's Ghost Is A Smash!
September 29, 2006
Napoleon's Ghost is the latest artist signed to RRO Entertainment. His brand new download only single is "They're Coming To Take Me Away Ha! Haa!!."
You may have heard this song before. You may remember Napoleon XIV from those heady days of the summer of 1966.
40 years ago, "They're Coming To Take Me Away Ha! Haa!!" took AM Pop radio by storm. "They're Coming To Take Me Away Ha! Haa!" sold 1.2 million copies and made it all the way to #3 in Billboard before it was banned from airplay. It was an utterly unique novelty hit- nothing like it before.... or since. UNTIL NOW!
40 years later, Napoleon's Ghost offers up a brand new version of this all time comedy musical novelty. Complete with "warped" VSO vocals, sirens and great fun. If you're under stress, this song is the place to press.
As a special bonus, Napoleon's Ghost even re-creates the fun of the original B-side: BACKWARDS!!!!
These songs are available for download only across The Internet.
