Fahey Live 1972

This is material that has been around on bootleg for some time, and is credited as having been recorded in 1968 at the Worcester MA Polytechnic in 1968.

That date at least is wrong; Fahey talks (in slightly less than glowing terms) about Vanguard; he has signed with WEA in order to record 'Of Rivers & Religion', so it must be 1972. Fahey believes it is going to come out on Elektra, but of course it was finally assigned to Reprise. There's a lengthy 'Voice of the Turtle', and two medleys. The sound quality is somewhat variable but entirely listenable; John's repartee is entertaining as always.

Thanks to ejg who gave me this.
