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.
