4.0 out of 5 stars The Charming & The Experimental John Fahey, 7 Dec 2013
This review is from: Requia and other compositions for guitar solo (Audio CD)
Along with "The Yellow Princess" this 1967 record is the only other album John Fahey made for the Vanguard label. Anyone already charmed by John Fahey will not be able to resist this unusual record. Just over half of it is John Fahey playing his own wonderful compositions on his acoustic guitar, and that in itself makes for utterly compelling listening. At least two tracks here are re-recorded versions of music that was previously issued on his own Takoma label, and one other was later re-recorded when he signed up with the Reprise label. The unusual aspect of this record is the inclusion of four tracks (all back to back) titled "Requiem To Molly (Parts 1 -4)". This is a extended recorded montage and is not something you would expect on hear on a John Fahey album - but it was 1967, and experimentation with all sorts of sound was, for some, the order of the day. The sleeve/booklet describes this montage of sound as "special effects" recorded by John Fahey, Sam Charters and Barry Hansen.
