Harry Taussig

Harry Taussig issued an obscure privately pressed album of acoustic guitar instrumentals in 1965, Fate Is Only Once, that was much like John Fahey in its combination of folk, blues, and stark Americana. Taussig, in fact, is just as obscure in relation to a relatively unknown similar figure like Robbie Basho as Basho is to Fahey. That might change with the reissue of Fate Is Only Once on CD in 2006. The only other recordings that Taussig issued appeared on a 1967 compilation, Contemporary Guitar Spring '67, which as it happened also featured Fahey (whose Takoma label issued the LP) and Basho, as well as Max Ochs and Bukka White.
