"Since 2005, Tompkins Square's Imaginational Anthem compilations have featured some of the greatest acoustic guitarists in the world, with recordings spanning five decades. More than mere samplers, these albums have served as state-of-the-art dispatches from the front lines of the art form. The first three volumes, available as a low-priced box set, intermingled generations of American primitive players -- lost, forgotten maters next to new-school players. Volume 4 saw a departure from that formula, featuring only new jack players. Volume 5 also features the current crop of young players, but with a twist. This is the first volume not compiled by Tompkins Square's Josh Rosenthal. Instead, he recruited guitarist Sam Moss. 'I felt I'd exhausted most of the older guys I wanted to dig up, and I wasn't hearing that much new guitar that I really liked. I sensed that Sam knew what was going on.' The result is a gorgeous panoramic view of contemporary guitar, full of agile finger-style, and a few jagged detours." Artists: Bill Orcutt, Steve Gunn, Jordan Fuller, Danny Paul Grody, Nick Schillace, Will Stratton, Daniel Bachman, Eric Carbonara, Tom Lecky, Alexander Turnquist, Cam Deas and Yair Yona.
