Have you heard The Yellow Princess or Red Cross? They're two of my favourite albums ever.
is absolutely beautiful. It's a teeny bit harrowing though, especially considering the backstory.
One of the most amazing recording artists ever. Love the early sparse stuff, some of the late 'difficult' ones (especially Red Cross) but favourites are ones in the middle period with the long tracks and and lots of different textures, styles etc: The Yellow Princess,America, The Great San Bernadino Birthday Party are all particularly brilliant. Also the amazing recently released live album The Great Santa Barbara Oil Slick. His many Christmas albums get played every year in my house too.
Anyone who comes on this site who likes alt-country, post-rock, even drone should check out John Fahey.
