Artist: BASHO, ROBBIE
Title: The Seal Of The Blue Lotus
Format: LP
Label: 4 Men With Beards
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Originally released on John Faheys Takoma Records in 1965, The Seal Of The Blue Lotus is the debut album from American guitar soli legend Robbie Basho. In college Basho immersed himself in the study of Asian art and culture, even changing his last name to that of the Japanese poet Matsuo Basho, and his music shows a much greater Eastern influence than contemporaries like John Fahey and Peter Lang. Basho was particularly entranced by the raga form which is apparent in classics like Dravidian Sunday from this album. A guitar solo masterwork." - 4 Men With Beards. On 180 gram vinyl.

Title: Twilight Peaks
Format: CD
Label: Smeraldina Rima
Country: Belgium
Price: $20.00
“Formal reissue of Twilight Peaks, guitarist Robbie Bashos last recordings. It was originally issued in 1984 on a tape label called The Art of Relaxation, and never got any reviews or attention at the time. For this proper release it was mastered by Glenn Jones (of Cul de Sac fame) and Matt Azevedo, from the original demo tapes, provided to Glenn Jones by Basho himself as he was working on the album. The CD has two extra live tracks, also culled from the original demo tapes. Amazing liner notes by Glenn Jones and Rich Osborn.” - Smeraldina Rima.
