  • Listening to this classic 1967 LP, the keen-eared might note that the melody to "On The Banks Of The Wichita" was lifted directly from Ravi Shankar's 1962 "Theme From Pather Panchali." (Which is fine because it's a great melody.) John Fahey's method was always to take themes--sections--movements from the great store of American roots music (folk, blues, Tin Pan alley, even classical) and meld them together in an avant-garde genre of his own making. DANCE OF DEATH (1967) is a representative title in the superior run of albums Fahey recorded (and re-recorded) for his own Takoma label throughout the 60s, and speaks to Fahey's reputation for experimentation and eclecticism.
Professional Reviews
The Wire (3/00, p.56) - "...Strange, flowering, fulsome melodic pieces in open guitar tunings..."

Mojo (Publisher) (12/99, p.130) - "...strongly rooted in the traditions of the vibrates with an intensity generated by the truly original."
