Artist: FOSSON, MARK
Title: Digging In The Dust: Home Recordings 1976
Format: LP
Label: Tompkins Square
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Kentucky native Mark Fosson recorded one album for John Faheys Takoma Records in 1976 which went unreleased until 2006. Mark recently found the home demo for that session. Heres what he has to say about them: These 11 tracks are the songs I began writing after acquiring my first 12-string guitar. I recorded them in my living room on a Pioneer RT 1050 2-track reel-to-reel with a rented microphone (I believe it was an AK6414 but I wont swear to it). All are originals except for Back In The Saddle Again which resulted from my other obsession at the time of watching old black & white Gene Autry movies any chance I could... Most of these songs would appear later in slightly altered form on The Lost Takoma Sessions, but these original versions are my personal favorites. I cant believe the tapes have survived so long and still sound as clean as the day I recorded them." -Tompkins Square.

Artist: TAUSSIG, HARRY
Title: Fate Is Only Once
Format: CD
Label: Tompkins Square
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Released as a short-run private press LP in 1965, Fate Is Only Once has long been a coveted collectible among American Primitive guitar enthusiasts. The only other recorded work by Taussig surfaced on the out of-print Takoma LP Contemporary Guitar Spring 67alongside John Fahey, Robbie Basho, Max Ochs and Bukka White. Dorian Sonata was recently featured on the acclaimed acoustic guitar compilation Imaginational Anthem Vol. 1, and now the album is here. remastered, with original liner notes and vintage photos. The album features takes on traditional tunes (Dark Town Strutters Ball, Revs Rag and St. Louis Tickle), expressive originals in the American primitive vein (Blues For Zone VII, Dorian Sonata) and re-workings of songs popularized by Rev. Gary Davis and Elizabeth Cotten (Baby Let Me Lay It On You/Thatll Never Happen No More, Sugar Babe, Yoir Papa Cares For You.)The headiness of the album is remarkable for a 1965 guitar recording. While many guitarists were still stuck in the stuffy, conservative world of folk", Taussig was mining spacier territory like his colleague John Fahey. The musical ideas on the album sound remarkably fresh 41 years later." - Sunbeam.

Title: Imaginational Anthem Volume Two
Format: CD
Label: Tompkins Square
Country: US
Price: $14.50
"Released in October 2005, Imaginational Anthem Volume One featured two generations of important acoustic guitarists, from John Fahey and Sandy Bull to Jack Rose and Kaki King. Volume Two expands and builds on this theme with 70+ more minutes of guitar magic -- all previously unreleased on CD in the US. 23-year old UK 12-string upstart James Blackshaw opens the record, while the late master Robbie Basho, a clear influence on Blackshaws style, closes it. Bashos track is the only live recording by this groundbreaking guitarist ever released. Riches abound on Imaginational Anthem Vol Two, with new recordings by former Takoma roster alumni Peter Lang (who made an album with John Fahey and Leo Kottke), Billy Faier (an original Greenwich Village folkie whose late 50s Riverside records inspired a fellow crack banjo player, Steve Martin) and an archival home recording by Fred Gerlach (a favorite of Jimmy Page). The new breed is well-represented by fascinating figures of today -- Smith, Carter, Sparhawk, Kraus, Rose and Blackshaw. Legendary singer/songwriter Michael Chapman, whose first albums for the Harvest label in the 60s are now seeing the light again, contributes as well." - Tompkins Square.
