"Ladies and gentlemen, presenting 1977's newest discovery -- the best guitar player John Fahey has heard since Leo Kottke -- Mark Fosson! You didn't hear it then, but that's no reason it shouldn't be said after all these years. The CD being hawked here is the work of the last artist ever signed to Takoma Records by John Fahey. Mark's sound will not be unfamiliar to anyone who's heard an album of solo acoustic guitar or two in their life. On The Lost Takoma Sessions, Mark plays his style with the same individual personality that former Fahey discoveries such as Kottke, Robbie Basho and Bola Sete had -- not to mention lesser known Takomen like Peter Lang, Richard Ruskin, and Tom Akstens. The Fosson sound is light and smooth, perhaps best represented by the bright and melodious 'Sky Piece' -- though the entire album is a sweet listen."
