They Didn't Make it to Vinyl...

As an enthusiast, I'll listen to any format, but I do enjoy the sound from vinyl best of all, and it is the only format that I actually 'collect'. So you won't find pictures here of 8-track, cassette, or CD versions. The CD revolution of the mid-80's sadly took it's toll of releases appearing on vinyl, although John's late catalogue is better served than many. Of his main releases the following have not, as far as I am aware, made it to vinyl:

Christmas with John Fahey (1991)

Old Girlfriends and Other Horrible Memories (1992)

City of Refuge (1997)

Womblife (1997) - although it has subsequently appeared in a box set.

The Epiphany of Glenn Jones (with Cul-de-Sac) (1997)


If any of these did in fact appear, perhaps you will add a comment. Photos of the labels via my email would be wonderful.

I hope City Of Refuge [someday] ends up with a vinyl pressing, it's such a critical album in his catalog and it's a shame strict vinyl collectors like myself can't get a copy of it.

ps. Fantastic blog you have here, it's (in my opinion) the single best Fahey resource online. Especially being a vinyl collector!
