John Fahey: The Dance of Death & Other Plantation Favorites

performed by John Fahey (Takoma, 1999), 54 mins, 15 page(s)
The title The Dance of Death and Other Plantation Favorites might lead some to believe that this is a collection of public-domain items that go back to the Deep South of the 19th century. However, while this 1964 session does contain a song titled "Dance of Death," most of the material (including that tune) was wr...

John Fahey: The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death

performed by John Fahey (Takoma, 1997), 40 mins, 15 page(s)
A strange man, John Fahey, with an unusual set of guitar styles. This album, originally released on Riverboat Records and later reissued by Fahey's own Takoma label, has a lot of rough edges in terms of the recording but a tremendous amount of power when it comes to the music. Fahey was at the top of his game, alt...

performed by Leo Kottke, 1945- (Takoma, 1996), 38 mins, 14 page(s)
Leo Kottke's debut came about after he sent a cassette to John Fahey's Takoma label. Not surprisingly, it recalls Fahey's work in a number of respects: the synthesis of numerous influences from blues, pop, classical, and folk styles, the weirdly titled instrumentals, even the tongue-in-cheek liner notes. Kottke's...

The Best of John Fahey: 1959-1977

composed by John Fahey; performed by John Fahey (Takoma, 2002), 1 hour 19 mins, 18 page(s)
The title of this compilation is a little misleading. Although it is indeed an anthology, and the most recent two tracks were recorded in 1977, nothing was recorded as early as 1959. In fact, nothing was recorded before the mid-'60s. If you believe the track notes, nothing was recorded before 1967, though it shoul...

performed by John Fahey (Takoma, 1996), 40 mins, 12 page(s)
Like some of John Fahey's other projects in the '60s, this was actually recorded and assembled over a few years, and primarily composed of duets with various other artists (including overdubs with his own pseudonym, "Blind Joe Death"). One of his more obscure early efforts, Voice of the Turtle is both listenable a...
