"Using money he earned pumping gas, he made his first recording in 1959 and had 95 copies of it pressed; one side of the plain white sleeve read 'John Fahey' and the other, 'Blind Joe Death,' an invented blues singer about whom Mr. Fahey devised an entire mythology. That started his career at Takoma Records, his own label, which he ran until the mid-1970's, when he sold it to Chrysalis." -from: "A 60's Original With a New Life on the Fringe", Ben Ratliff, New York Times, January 19, 1997.
