The legendary guitarist, composer, and founder of Takoma Records, John Fahey, visited the studio for this May 9, 1991 episode of New Sounds From the Vaults. The late Fahey regales us with tales of psychoanalysis and repressed memories, along with the story of how Takoma Records was started in a basement, and its subsequent demise. Also, why Fahey hates the word “mellow.” Plus, listen to the Looney-Tunes guitar noises, Bartok-inspired folk influences, and finger-picking signature sounds of Fahey’s playing live in the performance studio.
