Digging In The Dust

On June 26, 2012, Tompkins Square is releasing Digging in the Dust, the stunning 1976 home demos by Fosson that led up to that lost Takoma record. The guitarist recorded himself in his living room, using a reel-to-reel tape deck and a rented microphone. He performed ten original compositions and one arrangement of “Back in the Saddle Again.” Though today he’s known more as an Americana singer-songwriter, these tapes are a testament to Fosson’s unique talents on 12-string guitar. If you’re a fan of Fahey, Leo Kottke, Peter Lang or more recent virtuosos such as the late Jack Rose, we think you’ll love this collection of forward-thinking guitar instrumentals. The Fretboard Journal is proud to be exclusively streaming this album in its entirety to readers and guitar enthusiasts worldwide. The stream will only be up for a limited time, so if you like what you hear, we encourage you to pre-order the album here (CD) or here (mp3). The album will be available everywhere on June 26, 2012.
