5.0 out of 5 stars Last of the great Takomas, 11 Oct 2001
By 
P. Bryant (Nottingham, England) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Days Have Gone By (Audio CD)
Released in America in the same year as Sgt Pepper, and finally - finally! - released in the UK, the last of the great Takoma albums by Fahey to make it on to cd, and of course it's worth the wait. here's the dancing, intoxicating Impressions of Susan. Here's maybe his greatest composition The Portland Cement Factory at Monolith, California - steely, menacing, like a train that won't stop. Here's the stunning meditation My Shepherd will Supply My Needs - even people who don't like Fahey like this one, all 8 minutes. The first Raga is splendid, the second is a sound collage experiment which is...uh, experimental. It's a great album by Fahey in his prime (aged 28).

4.0 out of 5 stars Some More Classic Fahey, 13 Jun 2012
This review is from: Days Have Gone By (Audio CD)
This album contains some of Fahey's finest moments. The first five tracks, by accident or design I don't know, for me make up a succinct suite, each one leading neatly into the next despite being quite different. One of them, 'Joe Kirby's Blues', is a classic Fahey blues number, utterly desolate but uplifting at the same time. The first part of 'A Raga Called Pat' is an excellent exploratory number, but the next part (which used to start side two of the LP) is a baffling sound collage that doesn't work. The following guitar pieces are nice but not outstanding. It's altogether a bit patchy, but there's enough superb Fahey guitar here to merit four stars.
