Morning Edition Feature on Guitarist Harry Taussig
Today's (Thursday, March 14th) episode of Morning Edition features a profile on guitarist Harry Taussig, who's 1965 instrumental record Fate Is Only Once was re-issued by the Tompkins Square label in 2006, 41 years after its initial release.
Taussig plays the first show of his career at South by Southwest in Austin this week, alongside labelmate Daniel Bachman. Bachman will be performing in Marfa this Saturday, March 16th at 9 pm at the Marfa Book Company. The show is presented by Marfa Public Radio and the Marfa Book Company. Tompkins Square Records owner Josh Rosenthal, quoted in the Taussig segment, will also be on hand with test pressings and out-of-print records from the label's catalog.
