This cd in fact contains two christmas albums,one a solo by John Fahey,and the other featuring duets with Richard Ruskin,so incredible value.Firstly,if you are unfamiliar with Fahey take note,the Kings singers or Charlotte Church this is not,these are carols and christmas tunes played by J.F.in his own style,acoustic guitar played so clearly,beautifully and spiritually,he gives new meaning and depth to tunes we've all heard so many times before.The quality of sound on the recordings are excellent too.
Those of you who do know Fahey will understand when I say he takes us on a few of his journeys in his interpretations of these tunes which are wonderful,and in the christmas fantasy tracks the journeys become epic voyages in the style of Yellow Princess,Requia,America,The Voice of the Turtle etc..etc...
So for Fahey converts this cd needs no selling,and those new to this master of the acoustic guitar a wonderful entry into the man's unique musical style.....for Christmas or any time.
