On Visions of the Country Robbie crystalized his sound into a hauntingly rich portrait of the American West. Sonorous and operatic, Basho’s vocals sometimes veer towards being bombastic to the point of self-parody, although when time is given to adjust to his unique vocal stylings, and the disconcerting sincerity behind them, they provide a powerful companion to his guitar playing. It is in his guitar playing that his true brilliance shines however, fingerpicked drones giving weight to arpeggiated chords tumbling from his guitar like a waterfall. In an album suffused with emotion, it is in the guitar work that the greatest depth of feeling is found, through the fingerpicked American folk-cum-Indian raga which is the soul, flesh and bone of Basho’s musical output. For the most part Basho plays unaccompanied except for his voice, although a violin makes an appearance on Rocky Mountain Raga.

Recorded in the height of Robbie Basho's creative career, Visions of the Country was originally released at the end of 1978, slipping quickly out of print and into relative obscurity. The album is comprised of technically superb instrumentation (6 & 12 string guitars and piano); majestic compositions; transcendent singing and whistling; and astonishing lyrical, emotional, and spiritual depths. It is with a feeling of tremendous honor and joy that we offer this re-issue, which we hope will please existing Basho devotees, and create new acolytes, in equal measure

Robbie Basho, little known shaman of America the beautiful. Between 1965 and 1984 Basho composed 16 records of highly innovative folk/world music. In the beginning of his career Basho worked alongside John Fahey to create a new guitar tradition, the "American Primitive". Gnome Life has the great honor of re-issuing one of Basho's finest records which has been out of print since 1978. If you're looking for this album, then I imagine that you're familiar with Basho's works on CD. Visions of the Country is unlike Guitar Soli or Bashovia in that the songs are shorter and more "western sounding" than his earlier eastern influenced albums. That said, the sound of the album I'd say is a mix of American folk, western classical, eastern modal, native American, and of course, Robbie's own distinct interpretation and style. The songs on this album are sach distinct, moving and memorable.

It's a wonderful record that Gnome Life seems to have totally botched. Mine is off center on the B side and the pitch fluctuations basically ruin any of the songs with piano (including my fav "Orphans Lament"). Or maybe the flutter is due to some other issue in their process.

great ant
Anyone else's copy pressed slightly off centre on the A side?

Mine is. Sounds awful. Very disappointing. Thinking of writing to Gnome Life to see if they will send me a replacement when they do the new re-release in July

one of my favorite records. beautiful cover and nice layout with a brief bio. my friend turned me on to this awesome record. my friend is the best

Excellent. They did a great job with this reissue. A+
