Personnel: John Fahey (guitar).

One of the best and most influential acoustic guitarists of his generation, John Fahey's music fused past and present, borrowing from the traditions of blues and folk music and filtering them through a modern musical viewpoint. Some of Fahey's most striking (and most popular) work appeared on a series of Christmas albums, in which he gave seasonal tunes and hymns readings that were at once fresh, thoughtful, and respectful of the beauty of the original melodies. Christmas Soli is a collection that brings together selections from four yuletide albums -- 1968's The New Possibility: John Fahey's Guitar Soli Christmas Album, 1975's Christmas with John Fahey, Vol. 2, 1982's Christmas Guitar, Vol. 1, and 1988's Popular Songs of Christmas & New Year's (the latter a collaboration with Terry Robb). ~ Mark Deming
