Robbie Basho



Aaaaaaaaand we’re back. Cold Splinters has been jaunting around the western coast of these United of States for the past couple of weeks testing baselayers for Woolpower, and now that we’re back home, posts will be…more regular. More on that trip in a few, but in the meantime, if you haven’t heard it, start getting hip to the Robbie Basho record that Gnome Life Records just rereleased. (Fletcher, who owns Gnome Life and records his own music under Bird By Snow, and his wife, Noel, were our gracious hosts on the Big Sur stint of our trip.) Here’s a little more info about Visions of the Country:

Recorded in the height of Robbie Basho’s creative career, “Visions of the Country” was originally released in 1978, and has been out of print for nearly 35 years. 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 that defy description or comparison.

Listen and buy vinyl here. Perfect for these cold months ahead.

    Great album! His best imo, but his others still well worth checking out.

    Included a song of his Born 1st Supreme album in a Spotify mixtape I made called Boxcars and Campfires:

    Happy Thanksgiving!
