It Takes A Year Original recording. William Ackerman Format: Vinyl. This is Ackerman's second album and already shows considerable development as Ackerman continues to carve his own niche next to Basho, Fahey and Hedges. He still stays in the mainstream of steel string fingerstyle work but he has started to soften, shifting to the lighter jazz work that is yet to come. Perhaps the best example of this is "The Bricklayer's Beautiful Daughter," a superb composition, played in an alternate tuning, with a new focus on the movement of chordal components against a melodic refrain.

William Shatner has yielded a unique and much-parodied body of work during his musical career. Shatner typically speaks the lyrics as an exaggerated interpretive reading

One of the greatest Ackerman's releases. Published (and property) by Windham Hill Records back in 1977. Originally an independent label, Windham Hill Records was founded in 1976 by William Ackerman and Anne Robinson, who were married soon thereafter. It was originally known for folk and acoustic music but became associated with new age music after the success of George Winston's "Autumn" in 1980. Ackerman sold his half of the company to BMG in 1992 and Robinson sold her half in 1996

He did just about everything from picking cover art to producing the records. Early albums featured himself It Takes a Year (1977) and his cousin, fellow guitarist Alex de Grassi Turning: Turning Back (1978). Although in later years critics would single out Ackerman's records (especially Childhood and Memory) and De Grassi's first record, the album that gained Windham Hill Records notice was the 1980 recording by George Winston Autumn.
