A guitar hero on par with John Fahey, Peter Walker has a singular style and vast reach. A Raga for Peter Walker is the rare tribute album that actually features contributions by its honoree. Alongside sturdy tracks from Thurston Moore and Jack Rose, Walker's own work is startling and gorgeous, a vivid snapshot of a master who still inspires wonder.
