JOHN FAHEY - Volume 6: Days Have Gone By LP
180 gram green vinyl.
"John Fahey was one of the most enigmatic figures of 20th century popular music. He wrote a thesis on Charley Patton when nobody knew who he was, he set up two incredible record labels with valuable legacies (Takoma and Reverant) and influenced an entire subculture of guitar players/composers. He was at once a folkie, a hippie, a Delta blues man, a raga-infused guitar god, a Dvorak and Ives-drawing demon, a twisted drunk, a romantic, a dry-boned comedian, a noisemaker and a provoker, among other things. Throughout his rich discography, you can hear all these qualities come through. I feel genuine envy for those coming to this man's work for the first time. Prepare to be hypnotised." - Axel Carrington
Yet another plum-amazing Fahey album.
One of the best, most emotionally charged of his efforts.
Listen sitting down with a bottle of whisky and some beers and see what happens.
