Album Review

Your Past Comes Back to Haunt You: The Fonotone Years, 1958-1965 is a massive John Fahey document that was a full decade in the making by Dean Blackwood of Revenant, guitarist Glenn Jones, and Lance Ledbetter of Dust-to-Digital. Released a full decade after Fahey's death, it contains 115 tracks compiling the guitarist's complete 78-rpm recordings for Joe Bussard's Fonotone label — solo, as Blind Thomas, the Mississippi Swampers, etc. — remastered from the original reel-to-reel tapes.

The 12"-by-12" collection also contains an 88-page hardback book with essays and track annotations by Jones and contributions from Eddie Dean, Claudio Guerrieri, Malcolm Kirton, Mike Stewart, and R. Anthony Lee, as well as a previously unpublished 1967 interview by Douglas Blazek., Rovi
