AllMusic Review by

Americana songwriter and guitarist Mark Fosson made his first acoustic recordings for John Fahey's Takoma Records label in the late 1970s. Sadly, Takoma folded before Fosson's debut could be released, and the tracks didn't see the light of day until Drag City released them in 2006 as LOST TAKOMA SESSIONS. Those familiar with Fahey's brand of acoustic, rhythmically sophisticated folk will immediately take to these early Fosson tracks, which feature an artistic, technically advanced approach to rootsy blues and country guitar structures.
