In 1966, Peter Walker's Rainy Day Raga translated the sound of Eastern ragas into the consciousness of America's LSD generation. The record is still considered a classic of its genre, cited as a primary influence on the new psych/folk sounds of today's generation. Like the great blues guitar pickers before him, Walker disappeared from public and recorded life for decades, yet continued to practice and study all along.  Spanish Guitar is the culmination of this past era, finding Walker continuing where he left off with Rainy Day Raga, tracing his beloved Indian sound to Spain, where the gypsies redefined Spanish music and created what is now known as flamenco. This record is to flamenco what Rainy Day Raga was to raga--an inspired sound that views all of Walker's studies with his Western lens, so unique and beautifully played that it seems like an entirely new genre.  This is a sound unlike anything elsewhere--a transcendental sound, one that until now only belonged to the heavens.
