Guitarist John Fahey's concept of Christmas music was a little different from the norm and the thought of playing holiday classics on acoustic steel-string guitar was unheard of until the master musician first explored the tantalizing possibility. 1975's warmly inspiring Christmas with John Fahey Vol. II is his second such collection following 1968's acclaimed The New Possibility. The set features apt support from fellow guitarist Richard Ruskin and atypical yet compelling takes on holiday standards "Oh Holy Night," "White Christmas" and the side long "Christmas Fantasy." A lovely change of pace soundtrack for the holiday season!
