Walker, Peter – “Rainy Day Raga” – [Vanguard]

Walker was a guitarist who studied with Ravi Shankar.?? He simultaneously studied Flamenco and Indian ragas and realized that both begin with a drone to make a wall of sound and then melodies are added in.?? As it turns out, both are rooted in Spain and India’s shared history of Islamic conquest.

Walker gained some fame from providing music for Timothy Leary’s “experiments”.???? Gorgeous string work, very soothing – this was Walker’s first release in 1966 and the recording quality of the re-issue is very good.
