Originally released in 1968 

A collection of solo-guitar arrangements of familiar Christmas songs, The New Possibility is especially noteworthy since holiday music had never before been played in Fahey's steel string blues guitar style. So it's not only relevant every year, but suitable for listeners who hate holiday music as well as those who love it. No wonder it is the DC-native acoustic virtuoso's best-selling recording.
