Skip James guitar portrait

Skip James

9 June, 1902 – 3 October, 1969
Upon meeting Skip James at a nowhere, makeshift "hospital" after an inauspicious operation, Fahey noted the wretchedness of the man before him, while trying to fathom that that this was the man responsible for the haunting recordings from the late-1920s. Unlike Hurt, Fahey concluded that James had lost a degree of his magic by the 1960s, though many would opine otherwise.
