Robbie Basho - Venus in Cancer (1970)

Come bask in the mysterious, otherworldly beauty that is Robbie Basho, hippie mystic freak extraordinaire, and one of the greatest human beings to have ever emerged from Baltimore. Mesmerizing, raga-like compositions for acoustic guitar, occasionally colored by Basho's quavering, almost operatic vibrato and a subtle symphonic backdrop. Makes me want to eat some mushrooms and go lay in the grass somewhere. This man made so, so many great records, so I just went with the one that I happened to put on today.

Track listing:
1. Venus in Cancer
2. Eagle Sails the Blue Diamond Waters
3. Kowaka d'Amour
4. Song for the Queen
5. Cathedrals et Fleur de Lis
6. Wine Song (Sweet Wine of Love)

She has been to the temple of the Lord
And seen his face
