Editorial Reviews

"This collection represents nearly 30 years of my recordings with the acoustic guitar, an instrument that I dearly love and continue to play. To my fans new and old, thank you for letting me share my music with you and permitting the return of my repressed subconscious." --John Fahey

The late John Fahey holds a unique place in the history of popular music. In the early 1960s, as the folk boom was turning listeners on to such musical pioneers as Woody Guthrie, Fahey was tuned to Delta blues icon Charley Patton. John Fahey captured both the purity of the blues and its intimations of mortality on 20 albums of instrumental compositions, most for his own Takoma label, and the "American Primitive Guitar" style he created has been enormously influential. The two-CD Return of the Repressed is the first comprehensive collection of this master acoustic guitarist's best work. Spanning nearly 30 years, the 42 tracks on these two CDs are primarily Fahey originals and arrangements of traditional tunes played on solo acoustic guitar. The accompanying booklet was written by Barry Hanson (aka Dr. Demento), a friend of Fahey's since the beginning of his career, making this anthology the definitive look at the fretsman extraordinaire.
