From its birth in the early Seventies until the end of the decade, Kicking Mule Records was known for eclectic, pretzel-fingered guitar virtuosity. In other words, it was noted for records like this excellent effort by Tom Ball. Renaissance music played on steel strings, flawlessly executed Blind Blake rags, Fahey-esque variations on classical themes, the subtle syncopations of Joseph Spence, the crisp alternating bass of Merle Travis--it's all here on this treat for guitar fans.
