Superior 4 Men vinyl, handsomely sleeved — all six of these with copies of the lovely original Takoma or Riverboat booklets.
The LP in a copy of the original tip-on, black-and-white sleeve.
Fahey’s first recordings, from 1959, plus re-recordings of the same material from 1964, and 1967.
From 1979 — mainly solo, reworking old themes and melodies, and updating his cover versions to include more contemporary guitarists, even proteges like Leo Kottke.
Heartfelt hymns and songs of praise, deconstructed and rebuilt. Sometimes reverent, sometimes raging, sometimes playful, always spellbinding. ‘Christ Is Not Cute’ runs the Fahey quote on the sleeve. A beauty.
Three long, intricate solos; an album Fahey reckoned his best.
Both the 1963 and 1967 recordings of this material.
