Kentucky native MARK FOSSON recorded one album for John Fahey’s Takoma Records in 1976 which went unreleased until 2006. Mark recently found the home demo for that session. Fosson says: “These 11 tracks are the songs I began writing after acquiring my first 12-String guitar. I recorded them in my living room on a Pioneer RT1050 2-track reel-to-reel with a rented microphone. All are originals except for ‘Back In The Saddle Again,’ which resulted from my other obsession at the time of watching old black & white Gene Autry movies any chance I could...usually at 5:00 AM! I met Mr. Autry many years later and tried to tell him this but the crowd was too loud & his ears were too old & he couldn’t hear a word I was saying. Anyway...thanks Gene. Many of these songs would appear later in slightly altered form on The Lost Takoma Sessions, but these original versions are my personal favorites. I can’t believe the tapes have survived so long and still sound as clean as the day I recorded them.”
