John Fahey - The Great Santa Barbara Oil Slick
One of Fahey's most concise live works and a testament to his early songwriting, this album was recorded mostly at The Matrix in San Francisco. Its just Fahey and his guitar with scattered but amusing
stage banter cutting through the raw and ragged raga. Full of his usual fluid movement the pieces ripple with the spirit of indigenous blues, the barn-dance optimism of country and meditative hum of the raga's that seem to always inform Fahey's songwriting. Wrapped in a splendid, silver-inked packaging with some liner notes from Glenn Jones, this may be the easiest inroad for those not formally acquainted with the guitarists work over the many years of his career.
