One of acoustic music's true innovators and eccentrics drawing from blues, Native American music, Indian ragas, experimental dissonance, and pop, John Fahey was living in Berkeley, California in the late Sixties when this set at San Francisco's legendary Matrix club was recorded. Drawing the best material from his two sets at the club that night, "The Great Santa Barbara Oil Slick" shows the influential fingerpicker at the height of his prodigious technique. Deluxe package with detailed liner notes by Fahey expert (and Cul de Sac member) Glenn Jones.
