One of the most influential recordings in the entire Tradition records catalog, the 1963 LP Anthology of the Twelve String Guitar is a treasured artifact that has been relished by generations of guitar fans as one of the cornerstones of recorded guitar history. The great 12 string guitarist Leo Kottke, among many others, has often cited this album as being one of the first records that made him aware of the possibilities of the instrument and was most influential in developing his own style. The guitar players assembled for this wonderful record are all superstars in their own right among them Glen Campbell, the king of all West Coast session guitarists Howard Roberts, the great Mason Williams (Classical Gas), Roger McGuinn (The Byrds), Country Music super-session players Joe Maphis and Bob Gibson, and the unique Billy Strange.
