The Transfiguration Of Blind Joe Death (CD)
This was John Fahey's fourth solo album and was recorded by Brian and Barry Hansen in 1965. As with its predecessors it became widely influential for other guitarists and composers including Leo Kottke, Robbie Basho and Bob Brozman, all of whose work can be found in the Ace Records catalogue. These players, and others, shared John's ambitions for furthering the place of the solo steel-stringed guitar, and for some of them this album was seen as one of the very best. It was originally issued on the small Riverboat label and then re-issued on Takoma. The original issue included a lengthy booklet of Fahey's tangential and mystifying writing, amongst other things continuing the 'biography' of Blind Joe Death that had been so much a part of his earlier releases. This booklet does not form part of this package, though as we will see other notes that make up for its omission.
