Song of The Day #057

"The Downfall of the Adelphi Rolling Grist Mill" by John Fahey

Released in 1963, this tune foreshadows the rest of Fahey's career in that it's really...weird. A frantic flute is in the forefront, and Fahey's dissonant, free-form guitar plods along in the background; it sounds unlike other Fahey pieces and unlike other music, really.
