Various Artists A Raga For Peter Walker
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Tompkins Square
After 37 long years, the legendary über-guitarist Pete Walker returns-this time with the mystique of Thurston Moore, Greg Davis, and Jack Rose in tow. Walker studied under Ravi Shankar and collaborated with Timothy Leary in organizing "celebrations," and now his virtuosity reaches new levels, straying from his psych-folk past and entering into a neo-classical-psych-flamenco universe. This living homage to the master is particularly honored with Greg Davis' heavily processed concrete ode "Truly We Dwell in Happiness." Between the visions of a completely realized Walker and his all-star legion of admirers, this collection just may be the gateway to the next level of avant-guitar heaven.
