Josh Rosenthal

At the helm of the San Francisco record label Tompkins Square, Josh Rosenthal has overseen the release of wonderful new LPs from Frank Fairfield, Daniel Bachman, Alice Gerrard, Ryley Walker, Hiss Golden Messenger, and more. But his eye for the old stuff is just as sharp, with numerous compilations and reissues lending new life to a few underdogs in gospel, folk, and old-time circles. The theme across Tompkins Square's catalog is a keen appreciation for the material that deeply informs American roots music. In his new book, The Record Store of the Mind, which he describes as "part memoir, part music criticism," Rosenthal addresses his life spent among these many albums. Steve Weiss, curator of UNC's Southern Folklife Collection, joins Rosenthal in a discussion of the book and Rosenthal's work. —Allison Hussey
