The Volume II album, on the other hand, comes across mostly as just straight-up Christmas music that happens to be played by John Fahey and a friend (except for the bonkers second half). Thank you for the upgrade on this album FG. Fahey was indeed a very unique guy and guitarist. These tunes are indeed a very fine addition to any Christmas music collection.

It can also be a plus for other artists I think.

The guitarist John Fahey got this correct in 1968 on The New Possibility-his landmark first Christmas album, or the Fahey record people tend to know if they don’t know much Fahey. Released during one of the most productive portions of his career, just as his cult and commercial appeal began to converge, The New Possibility collects 14 diverse holiday tunes, from his tinny and pensive strum through Auld Lang Syne to a frenetic introductory take on Joy to the World. Fahey plays the hymn with painstaking slowness, peeling apart the chords until you can make out each halting note and even the shifts of his hands between them. Fahey’s thoughtful technique subtly, wordlessly expresses the tension of Sears’ original hymn-a vision of despair, cut by a hope for redemption.
