Not a collaboration between the artists, as you might think from a glance at the title, but a compilation, featuring four songs apiece from each of the guitarists. Fahey, Kottke, and Lang (a considerably less celebrated name than the other two) all recorded for Fahey's Takoma label, and all played haunting acoustic guitar

Overview

Not a collaboration between the artists, as you might think from a glance at the title, but a compilation, featuring four songs apiece from each of the guitarists. Fahey, Kottke, and Lang (a considerably less celebrated name than the other two) all recorded for Fahey's Takoma label, and all played haunting acoustic guitar instrumentals that relied as much upon feeling and imagination as they did upon virtuosity. While their performances here may not be their very best--you can turn to their solo albums for those--anyone who likes the artists will like what they offer here. Indeed, their approaches are similar enough that casual listeners may mistake this compilation for the work of a single artist.
