0.0 Cam EMERITUS | October 15th 08

John Fahey is easily one of the greatest guitarists of all time, pioneering a fingerpicking style that would be constantly imitated by artists such as Jack Rose, Sir Richard Bishop, and Elliott Sharp. While I do favor the long-form improvisations of America and Fare Forward Voyagers more than this longer, sprawling album, this is my third favorite work by Fahey, featuring more consise, spookier compostitions. This album was recorded twice, in 1963 and 1967, but the '63 version is much better. The songs are sparser and more crafty, but for your money, just buy the bundle that includes both versions: the differences are vast enough for you to be entertained. One of Fahey's most magical works.
