2010 release. "An extremely rare album of instrumental guitar, originally released as a private pressing in 1965 (while Taussig was living in 'Beserkley,' right on the cusp of the '60s revolution) and then forgotten until the album was finally saved from the black hole of music with a re-release on CD in 2006. While this album is a faithful slice of American roots, folk, traditional rags and blues, Taussig is not a mere student of these styles, rather he brings a contemporary approach and a darkly sarcastic humor to the music that is all his own. In the vein of guitarists like John Fahey, Taussig is extremely proficient on his instrument (he even wrote a book called Instrumental Techniques of American Folk Guitar), but never bound by mere technique. An important piece in the puzzle of the American folk revival." Pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl.
