Dance of Death & Other Plantation Favorites by John Fahey

9/10 Jack Customer review, 19th December 2015

There is great guitar work on this album, both finger-picking and slide. this album on the surface has a laid back sitting on the porch quality, but the more I listen to it, the more I hear a foreboding dark quality to the playing. It's not the highest quality sound since it was recorded on the fly in the '60's. This is one of the best of a unique and special guitarist. John Fahey should be noted not just for his formidable skill, but his love and appreciation for American musical lore. His contribution is without equal as he is part exceptional musician, part historian, part educator.
