  • 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. These are Fahey's earliest recordings, the vast majority of which are previously unreleased on CD. 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from Eddie Dean, Claudio Guerrieri, Malcolm Kirton, Mike Stewart, and R. Anthony Lee, as well as a previously unpublished 1967 interview by Douglas Blazek.

Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "A rich exploration of Appalachian roots, Delta blues, and country..." -- Grade: A

The Wire (p.60) - "[T]here is much here that is essential: you can literally hear the shape of future musics being hesitantly assembled."

Down Beat (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Some of the performances on YOUR PAST COMES BACK TO HAUNT YOU are revelatory....[The project] is all about him figuring out what kind of composer he would be."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.83) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] lavish and lovingly compiled set....YOUR PAST COMES BACK TO HAUNT YOU exudes all the love and consideration which doubtlessly went into its creation."
