Buck Curran Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas Limited Vinyl LP

On his second solo album (both co-released by ESP-Disk' and Curran's Obsolete Recordings), the emphasis switches to acoustic guitar. Side A, all solo acoustic instrumentals, seems to have fallen out of a wormhole emanating from Takoma Records in the 1970s. There's some of that on side B as well, but also vocals and other instruments, sometimes overdubbed, and the dedication of "Taurus" to Peter Green, guitarist extraordinaire of the original lineup of Fleetwood Mac (when it was a blues band), hints at the breadth of Curran's influences. The introduction of other timbres and textures doesn't diminish the intimate, almost meditational mood, though.

Buck Curran: vocals, guitars, harmonium, flute, banjo.
Adele Pappalardo: vocals on "Dirt Floor."
Mastering by Harris Newman at Grey Market Mastering.
Written, produced, performed and recorded by Buck Curran.
