John Fahey

The Voice of the Turtle

Label: 4 Men With Beards

Format: Vinyl LP

Genre: Folk

Out of stock

The Voice of the Turtle is one of the most beguiling albums from one of America's most legendarily beguiling musicians. Originally released in 1968 on his own Takoma label, Fahey credits some of the compositions and performances to the fictional guitarist Blind Joe Death, and some of the songs are actually rumored to not be Fahey at all but in fact obscure blues 78s. Whatever the case may be, it's one of Fahey's most adventurous and beautiful LPs, with the three lengthy improvisational pieces that dominate, pointing forward to his later, more elliptical work. Reissued here on 180 gram vinyl in a deluxe tip-on jacket with an exact replica of the original 12 page booklet.
