Robbie Basho
Songs of the Great Mystery - The Lost Vanguard Sessions

Robbie Basho was one of the great American guitarists perhaps second only to John Fahey for influence.  Like Fahey he died relatively young and so left the world with a smaller body of work than might be expected. Therefore it was with great excitement that some lost sessions from the early 1970s were discovered. Vanguard initially released them digitally but now you can finally get the work on vinyl with track by track liner notes and rare photos from the era. An essential document from a much missed musician.

Voice of the Eagle: The Enigma of Robbie Basho

American folk guitarist and pianist Robbie Basho was a contemporary of guitarists John Fahey and Leo Kottke. The three of them all wanted to elevate the status of the acoustic guitar to grandness of a concert instrument. Unlike a nylon strung guitar Basho said it could bring about metaphorical fire. He was inspired by music and philosophy from different cultures around the world and particularly the music of Ravi Shankar. Voice of the Eagle: The Enigma of Robbie Basho is a feature-length documentary about is life. Available on Blu Ray and DVD
