John Fahey & Jim O'rourke - Live on WNUR

this session from 30/05/1998 yielded 35 minutes of lovely deconstructed folk and blues floating in a river of drone and elongated feedback. Jim can sometimes be stand-offishly oblique, and John's later period can be difficult (womblife), but this session is somber yet warm and fuzzy, atonal and foreboding yet soothing in a heavy hearted sort of way. maybe it's not even that heavy... just a solid good listen all around. the photo is not from this session, if it was, well for one thing it'd be in a cramped radio station, but also Jim would probably be surrounded by laptops and what not. enjoy.

debussy's 'jimbo's lullaby" (from the children's corner) starts around 16.20, I think. originally for piano, here with the guitar over orchestra samples...
