Venus In Cancer was the sixth album by American acoustic guitarist, Robbie Basho. It was originally released in 1969 on the Blue Thumb label. Often mentioned in the the same breaths as fellow virtuoso players John Fahey and Leo Kottke, Basho threw a whole load of eastern influences into his music which set him apart. His influence can be seen in the work of acts such as Six Organs Of Admittance, James Blackshaw and Jack Rose, to name but a few. Reissue LP on Traffic Entertainment.
