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.

Title: Basho Sings
Format: LP
Label: Tacoma
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"A reissue of Robbie Bashos Basho Sings, originally released in 1967. Its become an oft-quoted statement that John Coltrane was the Father, Pharaoh Sanders was the Son, and Albert Ayler, the Holy Ghost. It could arguably apply to the holy trinity of steel string guitarists as well. Many claim John Fahey to be the Father, Kottke was considered the Son, and Robbie Basho would certainly be considered the Holy Ghost. The Basho/Ayler similarities are many, and both pushed their idioms further physically and emotionally than all of their respective contemporaries. Basho Sings was Bashos fifth release for the Takoma label and as the title proclaims, Basho Sings showcases a unique voice that transcends the limitations of the vocal form. Hes left the pentatonic raga scales of his previous releases and showcases a unique and unparalleled take on the folk/blues song idiom. A truly outsider take on the American primitive genre, Basho Sings is finally reissued for the first time on vinyl 50 years after its initial release. Beautifully remastered; Edition of 500." - Tacoma.

Title: The Grail & The Lotus
Format: LP
Label: Tacoma
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"A reissue of Robbie Bashos The Grail & The Lotus, originally released in 1966. Its become an oft-quoted statement that John Coltrane was the Father, Pharaoh Sanders was the Son, and Albert Ayler, the Holy Ghost. It could arguably apply to the holy trinity of steel string guitarists as well. Many claim John Fahey to be the Father, Kottke was considered the Son, and Robbie Basho would certainly be considered the Holy Ghost. The Basho/Ayler similarities are many, and both pushed their idioms further physically and emotionally than all of their respective contemporaries. The Grail & The Lotus was Bashos second release for the Takoma label, preceding the wildly prolific year of 1967 that produced three absolute classics with the Falconers Arm sets and Basho Sings (C 1012LP). Supposedly the thematics of The Grail & The Lotus came to Basho while recovering from a feverish bout of pneumonia, and in that state Basho envisioned and expressed a simultaneous glimpse of the Feudal Age, European and Japanese evocations side-by-side, both co-mingling with Knighthoods in Flower. A truly outsider take on the American primitive genre, The Grail & The Lotus is finally reissued for the first time on vinyl, 50 years after its initial release. Beautifully remastered; Edition of 500." - Tacoma.
