Will Ackerman <> Returning: Pieces for Guitar 1970-2004
Grammy award winning "Returning" available on 180g vinyl for the 1st time!
 

Will Ackerman's 2005 Grammy award winning recording, "Returning: Pieces for Guitar 1970-2004" now on 180g vinyl for the first time. Ackerman is universally recognized as the preeminent pioneer in the new age music movement, and the founder of Windham Hill Records.
 
In 2004, after years of growth and introspection, Ackerman re-recorded an album of his best-known songs. A greatest hits collection of all new performances. Will's goal was to take a series of 11 favorite songs and record them for posterity in a way that reflects the emotional nuances, precision, and maturing beauty they've picked up along the road.
 
He includes the graceful and lushly melodic "The Bricklayer's Beautiful Daughter," the sweet and melancholy "Anne's Song" (inspired by working with fellow genre legends Alex de Grassi and Michael Hedges), and two peaceful early gems from 1970, "Pictures" and "Barbara's Song." Some were written as celebrations ("Unconditional"), others as elegies ("The Impending Death of the Virgin Spirit"), but all are intricate snapshots of a vastly influential musical life that keeps inventive to this day.
