The Seal of the Blue Lotus is the debut album of composer Robbie Basho, released in 1965 through Takoma Records. Skip Jansen, of Allmusic, favorably compared Basho's Eastern-influenced musical approach to that of John Fahey and noted the influence of Ravi Shankar. Jansen gave the album four out of five stars, concluding that it is "An essential document for folk guitar fans."[1] Historian Piero Scaruffi awarded the album seven out of ten, naming it fourth on his "Best Albums of the Sixties: 1965" list.
