Imaginational Anthem: 1965-2005

Genre: Folk; Lead Performer: Various Artists; Producer (group): Tompkins Square

Inspired by an old compilation of ’60s acoustic-guitar eccentrics, former Sony exec Josh Rosenthal has gathered two generations of fringe guitar virtuosos for Imaginational Anthem: 1965-2005, a collection of meditative string-picking and hypnotic blues-drone explorations. John Fahey is the biggest name, though Rosenthal also dug up tracks from obscure players such as Max Ochs and Harry Taussig, as well as like-minded new-school artists like Jack Rose and Kaki King.
