John Fahey Vol. 3: Dance Of Death And Other Plantation Favorites on Limited Edition Colored LP
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
John Fahey is widely recognized as one of the most influential acoustic guitarists of his generation. His early-60's Takoma records have inspired countless disciples and imitators, but Fahey's uniquely original imagination and his mastery of traditional styles put him in a class by himself. Dance Of Death And Other Plantation Favorites was Fahey's third Takoma record and one of his best. The flights of fancy of the original pieces are contrasted with traditional tunes from country blues and old-time Appalachian sources, and the two strains come together on tracks like "Variations on Coocoo" among others. Fahey's dark sound, quirky humor, and moody slide work are all in evidence on this historic release!
