Record Exchange Boise

The Wanting, Glenn Jones' first album for Thrill Jockey, was recorded in a fourth floor apartment on Commonwealth Avenue, Allston, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, overlooking the commuter train line. If you listen carefully to the record, you can occasionally hear trains going by in the background. Simply put, the Wanting is a collection of original compositions for solo acoustic steel string guitar, six-string, 10-string and bottleneck, and 5-string open-back banjo. Glenn Jones, a 30+ year devotee of the so-called "American Primitive" school of acoustic steel string guitarists, has been playing guitar since the age of 14. He formed Boston Psych-Rock band, Cul-de-Sac, in 1989 and led it on it's 20 year journey to nowhere, leaving nine albums in it's wake, including collaborations with guitarist John Fahey and Can's Damo Suzuki.
