And man, we are fucking blown away.

The talent of Jim O’Rourke makes sense, somewhat. Fahey was his father, on some level.

Which Fahey albums specifically? I’ve heard some of America , it’s really good stuff.

Is it: if you like Jim O’Rourke you’ll like John Fahey or if you like John Fahey you’ll like Jim O’Rourke. Either way - I like ‘em both. Big and great back catalogue - “The Legend Of Blind Joe Death” is my fav.
