Synopsis

Album Description
"Walker was a visionary, and this album shows it." -- All Music Guide Peter Walker was the quintessential psych-folk guitar player to come out of the '60s. Revered by Timothy Leary, who had him program the music for his TURN-ONS, Walker was one of the first to take the Indian tradition of ragas and channel them through the guitar into a sound that is pure heaven. His exotic, state-of-the-art finger-picking transcends description and has influenced such artists as Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance. This album, never before reissued on CD or LP, is a beautiful moment in time.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Never celebrated like John Fahey, Leo Kottke, Sandy Bull or Chris Smithers. . . Peter Walker plays celestral strings on the DNA of musical being. In other (and more reasonable) words - Walker has been overlooked and yet is a clear underground or cult favorite in the realm of raga guitar style musicians. Jam groups like Phish and D. Matthews owe much of their flowing style to folks like Peter Walker. Highly recommend!"
