Sandy Bull - Fantasias for Guitar & Banjo (1963)

The music that American Primitivism has brought forth, cost me a long while to like. Despite representing so few musicians (American Primitivism can be seen as primarily John Fahey, Leo Kottke, Sandy Bull, Robbie Basho, some other minor figures in the 60s and 70s and a new generation that brought us the solo records of Sir Richard Bishop, Jim O'Rourke and Jack Rose. And that's sort of it), it is extremely rich in ideas and output.

Here is one of the earliest examples of what American Primitivism is: solo guitar pieces. Sandy Bull sometimes accompanies these pieces with drums, and live he used to work with taping and looping other instruments as well. Serene and heavenly, that is what American Primitivism is.
