Subject: RE: Info: Robbie Basho (1940-1986)
I got a couple of Basho's early Takoma LP's on the recommendation of Fahey (the label's co-owner, btw) and didn't really get into him until I started to get a feel for Indian, Nepalese and Tibetan music later on though I always marveled at his ability to make one of the voices of his 12 string sound somewhat like a sarod or a sitar or one of those sub-continent stringed instruments while simultaneously playing the accompaniment.
