Portrait of a Soul (2 vinyl 10")

Loren Connors - Portrait of a Soul (2 vinyl 10\
Beautiful reissue of the 2000 album on FBWL, guitar ballads about Day, Evening, Night and Dawn, a major album in the discography of Loren Connors, which he considers his most personal record. Remastered in 2014 by Taylor Deupree at 12k.
One of the world's most singular guitarists, Loren Mazzacane Connors (born 1949) is among few living musicians whose prolific body of work can be said to be wholly justified in its plenitude. On more than 100 records across almost four decades, Connors has wrung distinct shades of ephemeral blues from his guitar, its sound ever-shifting while remaining unmistakably his own. From his early, splintered take on the Delta bottleneck style through his song-based albums with Suzanne Langille and on to the painterly abstraction that defines his current work, Connors has earned the admiration of many, leading to collaborations with the likes of John Fahey, Jim O'Rourke, Alan Licht, David Grubbs, Keiji Haino, and Kim Gordon.
