Notes About the Release
Guitar Soli documents the solo acoustic guitar movement that flourished between 1966 and 1981. The collection highlights a range of little-known innovators who bridged the chronological gap between the American Primitivism of John Fahey and Robbie Basho and the California Modernism of Michael Hedges and William Ackerman. Inside, discover the raga-influenced Ted Lucas, the mad-genius luthier William Eaton, the detuned loner Brad Chequer, and the classically trained, soon-to-be-mystery novelist Daniel Hecht. While Takoma and Windham Hill were laying the groundwork for the new age marketing juggernaut of the mid-’80s, Lucas, Hecht, Eaton, Chequer, Dan Lambert, Scott Witte, Richard Crandell, Jim Ohlschmidt, Tom Smith, Mark Lang, Stephen Cohen, Dwayne Cannan, Dana Westover, and George Cromarty were picking away in tiny cafes. They toiled for years in the same obscurity that Fahey worked to maintain, their privately issued albums sold hand-to-hand or stored in the garage. Consider it the perfect companion for your next seeds-and-stems separation marathon or transcendental meditation retreat.
