FAHEY, JOHN - YOUR PAST COMES BACK TO HAUNT YOU (5CD & BOOK)


"More than 10 years in the making, this box set features the earliest recordings and the first book ever written about one of the most influential guitarists from the 1960s and '70s, John Fahey. The five CDs feature 115 tracks, most of which are available on CD for the first time. As for the accompanying book, the list of scholars who contributed essays includes Eddie Dean, Claudio Guerrierri, Glenn Jones, Malcolm Kirton, Mike Stewart and Johnšs childhood friend R. Anthony Lee. Byron Coley contributed a poem about John, and Douglas Blazekšs 1967 interview with Fahey is published for the first time. Released 10 years after John Faheyšs death, this set puts one of the final puzzle pieces of Faheyšs career in place. Everyone can now hear where this guitar legend got his start ­ a smoky basement in Frederick, Maryland." (label info) Edited by Glenn Jones, with 88 pp. book.
