John Fahey - Your Past Comes Back To Haunt You: The Fonotone Years 1958-1965 ( Released in 2011) [BOX SET 5CDS] 320 kbps

 


"Your Past Comes Back to Haunt You: The Fonotone Years, 1958-1965" es un box set mastodóntico, un documento masivo, histórico y artístico, firmado por uno de los músicos más inusuales y guitarristas más influyentes de la historia.

Dean Blackwood de Revenant, el guitarrista Glenn Jones y Lance Ledbetter de Dust-to-Digital necesitaron toda una década de trabajo para su creación. Una labor que terminó unos diez años después de la muerte de nuestro protagonista. "Your Past Comes Back to Haunt You" contiene 115 grabaciones -su obra completa de cortes hechos a mano y bajo demanda en formato 78-rpm para el sello Fonotone de Joe Bussard- remasterizadas a partir de las cintas originales. Un trabajo exhaustivo, hecho con mucho mimo, que recoge las grabaciones más tempranas -la inmensa mayoría no había visto la luz hasta el momento- del genio de Washington, D.C.

John Fahey era un coleccionista acérrimo de Folk y Blues primitivo pero a diferencia de otros coleccionistas de canciones como el gran Alan Lomax, Fahey no buscaba la música como un ejercicio académico. Quería conocer el pasado. saber dónde habíamos estado para después influir en la dirección futura. Y así lo hizo. 

ADVERTENCIA: Degustar "Your Past Comes Back to Haunt You" al completo es un proceso lento que puede llevar meses. No recomendado si es tu primer contacto con el mundo sonoro de John Fahey. Aconsejado solo para los entusiastas de su evolución musical y sonido.
