Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Guitar Soli is a superb reissue of the cream of Robbie Basho's earliest work, mostly recorded in 1965 for his first two Takoma LPs, The Seal of the Blue Lotus and The Grail and the Lotus one cut from a 1966 album, Basho Sings, Vol. 3, is also included.
