Vol. 4 - The Great San Bernardino Birthday Party and Other Excursions by famed acoustic guitarist John Fahey was originally released in 1966. The instrumentation makes it a child of its time: flute, sitar and backwards guitar. However, the experimental soundscapes resulting from the interplay between Fahey’s lush fingerpicking and his startling and discordant strum-thumping make this a timeless and influential work.
