Audience Recording of Fahey at the Memphis Blues Festival of 1969
It's Fahey Week and this year is all about re-upping all the previous posts lost to the divShare crash. Everything is now on Dropbox, hopefully the free account can handle the traffic.
Here's a little gem sent to me this week. Two live songs recorded on a hand-held recorder by someone in the audience at the Memphis Blues Festival, June 6-7th, 1969. See page 396 of The John Fahey Handbook, volume 2 for details. Fahey was included in a two hour PBS program "The Memphis Birthday Blues Festival" hosted by Steve Allen, aired on June 29th, 1969. Does anyone have this video that they would share?
