FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Out of print for 35 years, Robbie Basho gains new recognition with this exciting re-release of one of the finest albums ever recorded.

‘Visions of the Country’ was originally released on the hugely successful Windham Hill label back in 1978, as one of their earliest releases. Grass-Tops Recording (GrassTopsRecording.com) and Gnome Life Records (GnomeLifeRecords.com) have teamed up to bring this lost masterwork back to the public for the first time since it’s original release.

Grass-Tops Recording will be handling the CD reissue, and Gnome Life Records will be issuing an LP version. This record has been faithfully restored and remastered by Kyle Fosburgh (KyleFosburgh.com), Joe Churchich (Squeaky Clean Audio, Andover, MN), Andrew Weathers (AndrewWeathers.com), and John Dark (Curator at Windhaming.com). Both formats (CD/LP) are available for pre-order on each website now!
