Vanguard 1976/2008

01. A Day In the Life Of Lemmeria
02. Night Way
03. The Butterfly Of Wonder
04. Laughing Thunder, Crawling Thunder
05. Thunder Sun
06. Kateri Takawaitha
07. Thunder Love
08. Song Of Great Mystery
09. Death Song

A real treat for Basho fans now. "Indian II" was to be the third album released on the Vanguard label (after 'The Voice Of The Eagle' and 'Zarthus', which puts it around 1976). Due to disappointing sales, Robbie was dropped from the label and this album remained unissued for thirty years.

In 2008, it appeared, out of nowhere on the Vanguard website for download. It only stayed for a short while, before disappearing again. No physical copy was issued.

I'm doubtful that the title was Basho's own, I'm guessing that like the artwork, it's the label's.

This is one of Basho's best and an important part of the picture. Enjoy, while you can.
