The Best of the Vanguard Years

Though only encompassing two albums, The Yellow Princess and Requia and Other Compositions for Guitar Solo, the latter of which appears almost in its entirety, Best of the Vanguard Years is an excellent overview of Fahey's tenure on the Vanguard label and also documents an impressively innovative period for the experimental guitarist. Mysterious, groundbreaking, mind-bending, and nearly disorienting, Fahey's unique genius is on display throughout the 70-plus minutes of mostly solo acoustic tracks. Taking country blues on a dizzying and occasionally unsettling journey, this is pretty revolutionary material, even if it all doesn't rank with the very best in his catalog.
