6- & 12-String Guitar is the album that gave notice to the world, or the part of it that pays attention to steel-string guitars, that 24-year-old Leo Kottke was remarkable. Known to aficionados as “the armadillo album,” for its cover illustration, the collection captured Kottke’s eclectic, innovative style in all its crispness, melodic vitality and rhythmic urgency. The release in 1969 of 6- & 12-String Guitar on the Takoma label amounted to automatic recognition and approval because the label was run by John Fahey, a modern pioneer of syncopated, finger-style guitar. Kottke has gone on to record dozens of albums and become an icon in the fingerpicking acoustic guitar business with a following that Rolling Stone says elevates him to “cult level.” He is a rarity, a popular guitar hero who has the respect of leading musicians of all genres.
