Imaginational Anthem Volume Three
by Various Artists
Released: Apr 2008
Label: Tompkins Square
Tompkins Square is one of the premier labels when it comes to progressive folk music, particularly solo acoustic guitar. The three-part Imaginational Anthem series spotlights pickers both old and new. In addition to vintage tracks from Mark Fosson ("Another Fine Day") and Richard Crandell ("Zocalo"), Volume Three treats listeners to young guns like Steffen Basho-Junghans, Greg Davis and Nathan Salsburg. Definitely check out the latter's playful, ragtime-inspired number, "Bold Ruler's Joys."
