Robbie Basho's 13th album is now available for the first time on CD. Remastered from the original master recording, it has never sounded better.

Robbie Basho's innovative pieces for the steel-string acoustic guitar incorporated American, European, and Eastern influences, while his unique voice appeared to emanate from another world.
Along with John Fahey and Leo Kottke, Basho was a part of the triumvirate of guitarists on the legendary Takoma Records, and one of the foremost proponents of elevating the steel-string acoustic guitar to the level of a concert instrument.
In his brief and troubled life he laid the foundations for radical changes to the musical landscape of America during the 1960s and '70s but reaped little more than a sparse (if fervent) following during his lifetime.
Almost 40 years since its original issue on cassette, Basho's 13th album Bouquet is now available for the first time on CD. Affording us a greater insight into his remarkable vision, this long-awaited release is a critical piece of the puzzle that was Robbie Basho.
With lyrical themes traversing famous mystics and arcane symbols, Basho's conceptual focus on Bouquet roves through Catholic, Sufic, Hopi and otherwise nebulous terrain in search of the choicest blooms, while his approach to composition sees him veering ever further from the long-form instrumentalist of earlier days, becoming something of a troubadour.
Remastered from the original master recording (discovered during the production of Voice of the Eagle: The Enigma of Robbie Basho), it has never sounded better.
The 24-page booklet includes rare photos and images from Basho's illustrated songbook, as well as texts from Glenn Jones, Henry Kaiser and others.
Bonus tracks include an epic 13-minute solo version of 'Land of Our Fathers'.
