Kottke, Leo

6 And 12 String Guitar
1979 Black & Gold Label Stereo Reissue In Shrink Wrap. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Leo Kottke's Wide-Release Debut Came About After He Sent A Cassette To John Fahey's Takoma Label. Not Surprisingly, 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. Kottke's Brand Of Virtuosity, However, Is More Soothing And Easy On The Ear Than Fahey's. It's Far From Sappy, Though, The Rich And Resonant Picking Intimating Some Underlying Restlessness, Like Peaceful Open Fields After A Storm. Establishing Much Of The Territory Kottke Was To Explore Throughout His Career, This Release Was Also One Of His Most Popular, Eventually Selling Over 500,000 Copies.” Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide.
