I got this quite by accident. I thought I was downloading something else, and was surprised when I opened the file to find a Robbie Basho album with a title I recognised as a track from 'The Falconer's Arm II'.
It is a compilation of already released material, mainly from Basho's later period. I can't find any information on this album, and I assume it's a fan made compilation.
Whoever did put this together deserves kudos; it's an excellent introduction to the artist and flows like an original album. Whoever you are, well done.
So, if you're intrigued by Robbie Basho and want a place to start, or you're already a fan but want to hear familiar songs in a new context, get it!
Note: There was no cover, so I designed my own Basho-tastic one.
