Max Ochs: Hooray for Another Day

If you haven’t been able to tell I’ve been on a big instrumental guitar kick recently (thank you Tompkins Square for making all my dreams come true). I won’t try to recreate the mood of this record in words but lets just say that there’s a gnarly east-meets-west vibe mixed in with some mind-bending atmospherics and explorations. Max Ochs recorded two influential guitar pieces on a long out-of-print Takoma LP, Contemporary Guitar Spring ’67’, alongside tracks by John Fahey, Bukka White, Robbie Basho and Harry Taussig. Hooray For Another Day contains new instrumental works from this American Primitive master, including a new take on Fahey’s arrangement of “In Christ There Is No East or West”. The disc also contains several spoken word poems, one entitled “Phil”, for Max’s cousin, the late folk legend Phil Ochs.

  1. I’m very happy to say that Max recorded this CD here. We had a great time capturing the spirit, especially on the title track, “Hooray For Another Day.”

    That’s Disappear Fear’s Laura Cerulli on hand percussion and the two of them really tore it up. I wish I had been shooting video during the tracking. All of it but some cymbal and bell work was recorded in one pass with the two of them playing off of each other. Very fun.
