John Fahey – “On the Sunny Side of the Ocean” from The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death (1965)

Beautiful composition for a sunny Sunday afternoon. Kudos to (the late) Fahey for paying homage to the wide-eyed mysticism lurking underneath American blues, folk, and old-time music. I hear that Fahey always performed with a jug of moonshine at his side. What a genius.

    Wow. I’m glad there are sounds like that in the world. Pretty and a mite mysterious. Thanks, Glenn.
