Phil Yost

Phil Yost is (was) a rather obscure musician. He released two records, one in 1967 and one in 1970. He's from the bay area, and plays flutes and bass. And that about all we (Ghostcapital and me) know about him. The first record Bent City was released on John Fahey's Takoma label. Pretty much every record released on that label fetches a ton of money on online auctions, especially the earlier ones. The first record ever to appear on that label was John Fahey's Blind Joe Death in 1959. It recently sold for several thousand dollars on eBay.
