This is the first volume of a two-volume set that explores the entire discography of the acoustic guitar player John Fahey (1939-2001). Volume 1 includes a biographical introduction and examines the recordings from Fahey’s first Fonotone 78 rpm issued in 1958 up until The Voice of the Turtle album of 1968. Each record is presented with all its known issues and variations. In addition, the complete labelography of Joe Bussard’s Fonotone Records and Fahey’s Takoma Records is described in detail with a pictorial representation of each label variant. In color!
"The John Fahey Handbook" - Volume Two is now available on Amazon.From the Back Cover:
John Fahey was one of our era's peerless musical inventors. People continue to be awed when they discover his recorded work, and his influence on culture today is probably greater than it was during his life. Fahey was also one of the great self-mythologizers and obfuscators of all-time, and left a whole lot of head-scratching in his wake. Fahey fans and scholars have all thrown up their hands at some point when trying to unravel the details of John's trajectory through our universe. But Claudio Guerrieri has ridden out of the wilderness to save us all. The first volume of his Fahey bio-discography is awesome in its scope and detail. Claudio's research is peerless, and the richness of the story he tells is intense, revelatory and leaves no stone unturned. He answers questions that are almost impossible to formulate, and shows us something very much like the naked soul of John Fahey -- the man as well as his music. This may not be the prettiest picture imaginable, but it's always fascinating. Claudio Guerrieri's "The John Fahey Handbook" is assembled with the same raw, powerful beauty that marked Fahey's best work. We should all bow to him. - Byron Coley
