5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Basho, 7 Jun 2014
This guy makes simply stunning music. I'm having a bit of a Robbie Basho day today but it's not just a one off, I must confess to you, I've had them before. You see once the Basho gets his tender hooks into you, nothing else will do. Don't be put off by the cover, I know he looks like a cross between a gnome, Lapland type gentleman whose lived in the forest for a very long time and a munchkin but that's Ok with me.

Robbie is a musical prodigy, a phenomenon! Try him out.

My friend Jim put this on his turntable and said, "John, you're either going to love this or think it's absolutely woeful". So he played it - the 5th track actually and then Robbie began: "Blue crystal fire..." and I was spellbound!

Deep within the forest, Robbie Basho burns brightly in me.
