Various — Wayfaring Strangers – Guitar Soli ... CD 15.99

A wonderful collection of obscure solo acoustic guitar tunes from the mid 60s up to the dawn of the 80s – beautiful work from a slew of players we've never heard of – but we'd put right up there with Fahey and Basho in the way they reach from the back porch to the cosmos with just their fingers and some strings! One thing we love about this set, and the Numero Group releases to date, is how deep they dig and what beauty they unearth, somehow with impeccable sound quality. Some tunes are starkly beautiful, some chime on fairly intently, some do both those things and more – and it's very heartening and instantly appealing stuff – wordless tunes that carry a lot of sensitivity and emotion! The LP comes in beautiful gate fold, heavy cardboard packaging with notes on the tracks and artists printed on, plus an introduction by Numero's Rob Sevier and essays by Dan Lambert and Jim Ohlschmidt. Titles include "Beginning" by Dana Westover", "Raga In D" by Ted Lucas, "Sailor's Dream" by Scotte Witte, "Flight" by George Cromarty, "Diagonal" by Richard Crandell, "Baha Dream Songs" by Daniel Hecht, "Delta Freeze" by Jim Ohlschmidt, "No More School" by Stephen Cohen, "Strawberry Man" by Mark Lang, "Warm River" by Bread Chequer, "One Forty Eight" by Swayne Canna and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mississippi, 2013. New Copy
Lovely instrumental work from Marisa Anderson – guitar sounds both acoustic and electric, played in a style that's certainly folksy – but often a bit less traditional than you might expect!

Egg/Staubgold (Germany), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Definitely the sounds promised in the title – and a sweet little set from 70s Paris, and one that bridges the gap between earlier electric prog and some of the clubbier cosmic sounds to come! The tunes are heavy on keyboards – great moog, Arp, and Fender Rhodes played by Patrick Vian ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deram/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy
The heady second album from Bill Fay – much more introspective and moodier than his first outing for Deram, and a session done in tight collaboration with British guitar legend Ray Russell! Russell's got Fay working here with a much smaller group than on the first album – a collection ... LP, Vinyl record album
