Takoma (1976)

Label founded by John Fahey. I have seen a few variations of this label design, but I like this one with the leaves at the bottom the best. This is one of three records that Joe Byrd, (United States of America, Joe Byrd and the Field Hippies) did on Takoma, and is moog versions of patriotic standards.

As a Fahey-related aside, I highly recommend reading his book How Bluegrass Music Destroyed My Life, which is some combination of an autobiography and a hallucination.
