    6 & 12 String Guitar

    The release of this truly iconic album virtually launched Leo Kottke out beyond the St. Paul-Minneapolis confines where he had been ensconced as a local phenom. By jumping on board John Fahey's burgeoning Takoma label, Kottke's guitar wizardry (especially finger-picking a 12-string, usually reserved as rhythm accompaniment) gave other guitarists far and wide, second thoughts. Throw in some sassy slide work on both 6 & 12 String Guitar and you'll know why this particular record is commonly referred to as an Intro to Guitar 101. With twelve original compositions plus a few by J.S. Bach, Kottke's blues, folk, country and classical channelings dictate both his playful and reflective approach on each. Highlights include blazing picking techniques on Busted Bicycle and Vaseline Machine Gun with some muscular bottleneck slide work on The Sailor's Grave On The Prairie.

    6 & 12 String Guitar (Out Of Stock)

    Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    Here's a gem from Analogue Productions that captures Leo Kottke's eclectic, innovative style the way it's never been heard on vinyl to date! This 200-gram, 45 RPM beauty plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings sounds fantastic.


    Leo Kottke's wide-release debut came about after he sent a cassette to John Fahey's Takoma label. Not suprisingly, it recalls Fahey's work in a number of respects: the synthesis of numerous influences from blues, pop, classical and folk styles, the weirdly titled instrumentals, even the tongue-in-cheek liner notes.


    6- & 12-String Guitar is the album that gave notice to the world, or the part of it that pays attention to steel-string guitars, that 24-year-old Leo Kottke was remarkable. Known to aficionados as "the armadillo album," for its cover illustration, the collection captured Kottke's eclectic, innovative style in all its crispness, melodic vitality and rhythmic urgency.


    For decades, Leo Kottke would inspire generations of fingerpicking acoustic guitarists (and help pave the way for New Age and contemporary instrumental music), but this 1969 album is the one that started it all. Kottke's brilliant debut was released, fittingly, on John Fahey's Takoma label. Showing the influence of Fahey himself (and Takoma labelmate Robbie Basho), Kottke performs impossibly difficult solo compositions that meld blues, bluegrass, and jazz techniques. Whether surefooted and quick (The Driving of the Year Nail, Jack Fig, The Fisherman) or slow and reflective (Ojo, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring), Kottke's instrumental work is simply awe-inspiring. He'd forge an entire career out of this music and eventually incorporate singing onto his albums, but this gem is Kottke at his very best. Essential.- Amazon.com

    All In One Day (Out Of Stock)

    Reminiscent of the great Rickie Lee Jones, the fresh voice and stream of consciousness story telling of Lorna Hunt grabbed Classic's attention in 1998 and the results on this 2LP set surely show you why. Recorded live to 2-track analog at the ambient Lompoc Theater by Paul duGre (Leo Kottke, Dave Alvin, Los Lobos), Lornas voice and guitar is backed by Danny Frankel on percussion, Greg Liesz and pedal steel, electric guitar, mandolin and weisnborn, Dave Jackson an accordion and Dave Pilch on bass. Features photography by legendary lens man William Claxton. Available on Classic Records Clarity SV-P II 200g vinyl.


    Production notes:


    Clarity Vinyl represents the ultimate in vinyl formulations because it is comprised of over 90% percentage of the highest quality co-polymer available - a key component in vinyl pellets used for manufacturing vinyl records. Further, Clarity Vinyl has no carbon black additive, common in vinyl formulas for LPs. Carbon Black contains trace metals that become magnetized and cause electrical distortions in cartridges during playback that smears the sound. By taking out the Carbon Black, Classic Records is able to dramatically reduce the electrical distortions and thus bring more Clarity to the playback process, providing a more realistic musical experience to the listener and LP enthusiast.

    Traffic From Paradise (Out Of Stock)

    200-gram super silent pressing from Quality Record Pressings!


    Never before released as a vinyl LP in the U.S.


    From the moment she first appeared in front of us on Saturday Night Live in 1979, Rickie Lee Jones has challenged her listeners and the establishment with an absorbing musical vision that defies border and classification. She rocked the culture of singer-song writerdom with her refusal to conform to the stayed and careful eloquence of the folk rock generation that came before her. Neither punk nor pop, she tottered on a thread of her own device, jazz - the old musical kind, and R&B - the Motown thread that permeates her work.


    Her self-titled debut album, released by Warner Bros. in March 1979, had an immediate and profound impact in the music world and the culture at large ultimately becoming a multi-million selling hit. Jones secured five Grammy Award nominations, including Best New Artist, which she won at the January 1980 ceremony. She won a second Grammy in 1989 for Best Jazz Performance for her duet with long time pal Dr. John on Making Whoopee.


    Traffic from Paradise, released in 1993, features contributions from Leo Kottke, David Hildago and Jim Keltner among others. Now it's being reissued by Analogue Productions as an LP in the U.S. for the first time in its history.
