John Fahey and his Orchestra "Of Rivers and Religion" 1972





















The first album for this unique folk-avant garde guitarist in a big label and with a band in his side recorded in 1972.
Fahey's (1939-2001) primitive blues steel-string guitar welcome us to follow unexplored ear-lands, but this time kind of easier for our trained in radio-friendly-sounds minds to follow.

A Side
1. Steamboat Gwine 'Round de Bend
2. Medley, Deep River-Ol' Man River
3. Dixie Pig Bar-B-Q Blues
4. Texas and Pacific Blues

B Side
1. Funeral Song for Mississippi John Hurt
2. Medley, By the Side of the Road-I Come, I Come
3. Lord Have Mercy
4. Song

I have had this on vinyl for over 30 years. It is, for me, such a wonderfully peaceful album. I just love it, and I am so happy to have found it here so that I can share it by scrobbling it on Lastfm. Thank you so much!
