|Taj Mahal Hidden Treasures Of Taj Mahal Limited 180gram Audiophile 2LP Set
As one of the most prominent figures in late 20th century Blues, singer/multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal played an enormous role in revitalizing and preserving traditional acoustic Blues. Not content to stay within that realm, Mahal broadened his approach.
He took a musicologist's interest in a multitude of Folk and Roots music from around the world - Reggae and other Caribbean Folk, Jazz, Gospel, R&B, Zydeco, various West African styles, Latin and even Hawaiian music. The African-derived heritage of most of those forms allowed Mahal to present the blues as part of a wider musical context.
Yet while he dabbled in many different genres, he never strayed too far from his laid-back Country Blues foundation. The Hidden Treasures of Taj Mahal 1969-1973 is a two-disc sonic portrait chronicling the early stirrings of Taj Mahal's solo career.
