The inner labels have 3 song title errors as well.
"On Doing ALL Evil Deed Blues" instead of "An"
missing the THE on "The Transcendental Waterfall",
and the BLUES on "Sun Gonna Shine On My Back Door Someday Blues"

John Fahey´s guitar speaks the language of children - simple, direct, honest. No messages because there IS only one message. He speaks with the urgency of now, because that´s all there is - the now of infinitely repeated sadness and joy. Emotions of the head.
Fahey - American traveller through music, the gentle music of man.
Fahey gives strength to face the end. Or the beginning...
He doesn´t scream. It´s all there anyway, but he knows it, and says it. See, in America you can sit and listen to music for 99 years saying, "What´s it mean?". And never know.
But Fahey tells it...
What´s nice to hear, though, is the way he does it.
It´s beautiful but it´s so much fun too. Peaceful fun, though; not the same fun as cracking kids over the head with nightsticks. That´s America - but it isn´t John Fahey. He´s the plains and the rivers and the mountains and the buffalo, the America of peace and beauty that´s always been there.
He´s not Johnny Pissoff. He´s popcorn and Popeye, Kerouac and Corso, righteous policeman of the American dream - the down-there-at-the-bottom dream of simplicity, peace and every man his own music.
Fahey; the American revolution of love.

Love and pies.
