Release Date:03/30/2018;Notes:Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing housed in gatefold jacket including a large format 28 page booklet with lyrics. The album has been remixed from the original master tapes and includes a previously unreleased track from the same sessions. The third international release by the legendary Malian singer and guitarist is many fan's favorite. The Source established Ali Farka Touré on the international stage and paved the way for his legendary collaboration with Ry Cooder on the Grammy award winning album Talking Timbuktu. The Source features Farka Touré's first recordings with his home town band Group Asco, with vocalist Afel Bocoum and percussionists Hamma Sankare (calabash) and Oumar Touré (congas). Touré's trademark acoustic and electric guitar (as well his njarka violin) playing are highlighted on some of his best loved and most sophisticated compositions. The father of the desert blues unleashes a set of driving small group performances, intimate love songs, mesmerizing guitar solos and two unique duets with the great American bluesman Taj Mahal.;Track List:1.
