Various - The Thousand Incarnations of the Rose (2-LP Vinyl)

The Thousand Incarnations of the Rose: American Primitive Guitar and Banjo (1963-1974) celebrates the evocative and singular style of solo fingerstyle guitar and banjo music brought forward by a group of maverick artists’ expressive interpretations of folk, blues and traditional song. Featuring recordings from the Takoma and Vanguard archives by luminaries like John Fahey, Robbie Basho and Leo Kottke, this compilation serves as a definitive primer on the stylistically diverse, emotive, enigmatic genre known as American primitive.

Guitarist/scholar Glenn Jones (who brilliantly assembled this collection) provides illuminating liner notes to broaden the listeners’ understanding of the American Primitive movement’s diverse inspirations and iterations.
