John Fahey - 1965 - The Dance of Death and Other Plantation Favorites

John Fahey: "The Dance of Death and Other Plantation Favorites"
Takoma, 1965
(American Primitive Guitar)

Track: "Worried Blues"


I knew that sooner or later I'd post something by John Fahey, although I wasn't sure what it would be. I've decided to start near the beginning. Over the next few weeks I will most likely post more from his catalog, so if you have any requests leave a comment. I'm not going to waste your time or mine by reviewing this because I believe the sample track will speak for itself. If you like it at all, you'll like John Fahey's music. It's as simple as that.

These are four songs recorded under the name Blind Thomas for Joe Bussard's Fonotone Record label in 1964 (I believe that year is correct).

Hi John, I only just came across your blog, it's ace! :)

I've never heard of this one though, and the album artwork and title has me intrigued, any chance you could re- up it?? I'd love to check it out, plus being tagged "American Primitive Guitar" sounds right up my alley!

When we dance no matter what rhymt we prefer, the activity always reflect our welfare . When we dance frequently we can notice a change not only in our mood too but believe it or not in the sexual performance. When some cases when the erectil dysfunction present like a problem, to buy viagra is a great alternative.
