Artist: LANE, WILLIE
Title: A Pine Trees Shillings Worth of Willie Lane
Format: LP
Label: Cord-Art
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Its been four years since “Guitar Army of One” scorched the earth. CORD-ART was more than a little worried that WL had become a spent force and disappeared. One of the more believable accounts had it that hed decamped from Philadelphia on foot with a bindlestick full of Robin Trower cassettes. Well, apparently that bindle also contained our mobile recording unit, cuz the guy has been amassing material to beat the band. This aint no victory lap, folks! Eight glorious glugs of guitar mucking, one of which was even recorded before a live audience (though we cant say which one). Grab this one while its hot. As one wise bloke said, “A hit is a hit, whether its music or not.” - Cord-Art.

Title: Guitar Army of One
Format: LP
Label: Cord-Art
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Cord-Arts flagship artist returns with yet another exciting slab of guitar anti-heroics. And, as the title suggests, hes more confident than ever. In addition to the finger-style excursions upon which he has virtually made his name, "Guitar Army of One" shows Lane moving further into the realm of multi-track dabblery, where he constructs charmingly precarious platforms to support his more indulgent six-string ventures. Recorded at home to 4-track cassette, so poptones these aint; but we think that listeners with an ear for the veil of haze that clouds-up certain Impossible Recordworks will embrace the fidelity here. Numbered edition of 350 copies with paste-on cover and silk-screened lettering." - Cord-Art.

Title: Known Quantity
Format: LP
Label: Cord-Art
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Willie Lane is a New England-born guitarist mostly known for his sporadic appearances (both live and recorded) backing Vermont duo MV & EE, but he is also prone to indulge occasionally in solo endeavors. Fans of MV & EEs cottage label Child of Microtones will remember Mr. Lanes "Recliner Ragas" disc of several years ago, documenting a legendary session from early 2003 that MV engineered and produced at his home in Guilford. "Known Quantity" finds Lane sequestered in Philadelphia apartments with a tape machine, coaxing ragas and abstract blues from acoustic guitars as well as walking the plank of a pedalboard with his dangerously heavy Les Paul copy. The recordings date from 2006 to 2008 - a span of time that encompassed a considerable range of shifting moods and approaches in Lanes playing, in addition to yielding ample refreshment breaks. edition of 350 numbered copies with printed labels & a not-so-shabby 11"x17" folkways-style paste-on." -Cord-Art

Title: Sleepy Hands
Format: 7"
Label: Cord-Art
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"...hes gone & put out this most excellent 7", Arrested For Decay/Sleepy Hands, again on Cord Art & its easily my favorite little record thus far in this wee year. These two works spark n flare with Jesus Acedo like motifs, the harmonics & melodies on both sides fan glowin embersve desert ragas that seem psychonautically informed via moments found within grooves one might encounter on the 1st Black Sun Ensemble lp. Even the sleeve art...looks...vaguely...Why, the whole thing is a goddamn Pyknotic conundrum I tell ya! Hand numbered edition of 350 & once the words out, not even the snappiest department store Santall have a chance at it." - SIltblog.

Title: Recliner Ragas
Format: LP
Label: Humito
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Vinyl edition of Lanes first recordings, originally released in 2006 on Child of Microtones. An unbelievably potent and unique brew, this record is one of the finest specimens of modern day guitar soli. Recliner Ragas is, as the liner notes so aptly put it, the fruits of a winter spent exploring the possibilities of nature/total sound as religion, independent study, low wage exploitative manual labor and general isolation while cultivating giant modal blues ragas in his one room studio flophouse. The vibe here is just dripping with this sense of deeply personal inquiry, a man-guitar-cosmos triad wherein all are one Utilizing intricate, yet simple, environmental refraction to create a tactile sense of space, Willie plays rings around yr skull, completely circumventing rational cortices in favor of direct mainline transmission. The effect on the listener is spellbinding, truly psychedelic in a way few modern records can touch. Indeed, this one can easily be filed alongside any classic higher-minded string sounds, from Fahey or Bull to Popol Vuh or Heldon, without any sense of retread or nostalgia. Effortless runs and flows, this is timeless music, universal in nature. In another time, Willie would be a lauded court musician; in 21st century America, he works in a library, and employs a deft wit to navigate the cruder aspects of earthbound life, while continuing to charm his scrabbly blues muse in recent recordings on his Cord-Art imprint. And while his recent records have seen him drawing out more layered arrangements and varied tones, Recliner Ragas displays a singular vision, the kind of window into a private universe we dig here at Humito." - Humito.
