Tomorrow, November 26, 2013, an album of 1970 recordings, Has Anybody Seen Our Freedoms?, by the brilliant raga/psychedelic/folk acoustic guitarist Peter Walker will be released by Delmore Recording Society.
According to a press release about the new album, Larry Coryell described Walker as, “’One of the most original practitioners of contemporary music’ and [Walker was] proclaimed by the Beatles’ press agent Derek Taylor as ‘Perhaps the greatest guitarist in the world.’ His music [was] celebrated by the late Jack Rose, James Blackshaw, Steffen Basho-Junghans, Thurston Moore, and Greg Davis; all contributed original compositions to the 2006 tribute album, A Raga For Peter Walker.”
