ROBBIE BASHO - THE FALCONER'S ARM II





















The Falconer’s Arm II

Takoma 1967

01. Variations On “Shakespeare Wallah”
02. Song Of The Snowy Ranges
03. Pasha
04. Song Of God


Variations on "Shakespeare Wallah" (Sunyat Raye) - Recorded live at the "Rainbow Concert" at Santa Cruz. Fine recording of guitar by placing the recording mikes in the audience between the two speakers. Lord love a Nagra ( a miniature Swiss tape recorder).

Song of the Snowy Ranges - Definition of a bummer - too much too soon. Definition of acid - Karmic Cosmetics. Bringum-back-alive-Basho's contribution to the ant-acid campaign. Better to wait 3 years for a good thing than to push it and get "jammed". From beneath icy pinecones, the breath of peace.

Pasha - A song of Persian Autumn - raga and flamenco techniques. Sing a song of Scorpio. A Pocket full of Pasha.

Song of God -12 string. This piece opens with what I call the Crest of Richard The Lion Hearted (Tantric Heraldry), adapted from a composition by Billie Roberts called Folk Fugue. Then into the Song of God proper, which is my attempt to render a feeling for the manifestation of : Krishna, Manjurs, Rama, God and
Meher Baba.

Hello,
I actually did the recordings for Falconer's Arm 1 & 2 while working as the audio production guy at University of California Santa Cruz. My then wife, Betsy, and I were close friends of Robbies, and in my position at the University facilitated Robbie being invited to perform there in what he called "The Rainbow Concert." The entire 2-story fore-wall of the auditorium was glass from floor to ceiling, so as Robbie performed he looked out over the audience and down the long slopes to the Pacific --and while he played a rainbow formed.
In contrast to the L.P. liner notes, all the recordings were done there at UCSC with a Swiss-made Nagra reel-to-reel tape recorder -thus Robbie's remark, "Lord love a Nagra." The back cover of the original double-L.P. Album in the special credits Robbie wrote, "Hugh Tinling -and wife Betsy (Hopa) whose hard work made the 4 recordings on the Land Rainbow Concert in Santa cruz a reality.
Robbie played some of the most meaningful music in Betsy's and my life. It yet grieves me to have lost him --and so early. Oh Robbie, rest in peace dear friend.
