That whacked out finger style guitar wizard, TOULOUSE ENGELHARDT will release two…yes two new singles January 1st, 2016!
How about a little “Space Age” Folklore? An insane 12-string guitar romp with “Special Guests”, Don Georgeson on Tenor Sax, (who performed with Stan Getz) and the celebrated return of “Tiki Timmy” on Percussion. (Those Beach Blanket Bingo Surf Films would have never been the same without his killer bongos!)
The tune that captured the image of the legendary “Plaza Steve” cruising the avenues of the South Bay beach scene in Southern CA! With “Special Guest”, William McNairn on clarinet.

“It’s Benny Goodman meets Mosrite Surf Guitar!”

Both tunes will be available on I-Tunes and @ your other fave downloading music sites New Years Day!

"Josh Rosenthal is a record man's record man. He is also a musician's record man. He is in the line of Samuel Charters and Harry Smith. In this age where we have access to everything and know the value of nothing, musicians need people like Josh to hear them when no one else can."
- T Bone Burnett

Grammy-nominated producer and Tompkins Square label founder Josh Rosenthal presents his first book, The Record Store of the Mind. Part memoir, part "music criticism," the author ruminates over unsung musical heroes, reflects on thirty years of toil and fandom in the music business, and shamelessly lists some of the LPs in his record collection. Crackling with insightful untold stories, The Record Store of the Mind will surely delight and inspire passionate music lovers ... especially those who have spent way too many hours in record stores.

Celebrating ten years in 2015, Rosenthal's San Francisco-based independent record label Tompkins Square has received seven Grammy nominations and wide acclaim for its diverse catalog of new and archival recordings.


> Check out the new Tompkins Square model guitar, built by Trevor Healy ! Video features William Tyler, Ryler Walker, Chris Forsyth and more.
