I have been listening a lot to Robbie Basho's Twilight Peaks album. It is one of his last efforts and it really radiates a soul that seems to reach out of the speakers. The playing is a little bit more melodious and less frantic than a lot of the earlier stuff, even when he is tremolo picking something about it seems to be moving on air. As much as I love Basho's earlier stuff and his unique voice, I find myself coming back to this album again and again. I think what is unique about it is the fact that sometimes even if I am not in the mood to listen to Robbie Basho I can always throw this album on.

If anyone ever finds this tape/cd I would love a copy. thanks.
