Originally released in 1980, Larry Conklin & Jochen Blum's great Seattle private press album, Jackdaw, gets a Tompkins Square vinyl reissue. About half the album is instrumental with Conklin on guitar and Blum on violin and 12-string guitar. Jackdaw brings to mind Fahey, Basho, Hecht, and other great solo guitarists, with mellow, haunting vocals that are worthy of the loner-folk tag. This album also spawned the regional Pacific Northwest hit "River Of Stories." If you're on a mission to find lost, masterful acoustic guitar records, this is definitely one you must hear.
