- The Yellow Princess by John Fahey
9/10 Jack 19th December 2015
The Yellow Princess has a lot in common with Fahey's other early stuff, especially "Death Chants, Breakdown, and Military Waltzes." Similar inspired mix of full-on finger-picking, slow blues, dissonance and found sound. The title track can be found on a number of anthologies, but the rest of the record is excellent as well. There's drum and bass backing on a few cuts, an unusual set-up for Fahey but one that works well. And the purchase is well worth it. "Steel Guitar Medley" has sprung right to the top of my list of favourite Fahey tracks.
