  • 1965's THE TRANSFIGURATION OF BLIND JOE DEATH is one of John Fahey's most mysterious albums. Despite the best efforts of cadres of Fahey-ologists, it's still not entirely known for sure when or where the 15 tracks were recorded. Regardless, the resulting collection has an odd fragmentary quality that actually enhances the overall album rather than detracting from it. Skipping from playful eccentricities like a version of the old standard "Bicycle Built For Two" to impressionistic, watery originals like the sublime "The Death of the Clayton Peacock," THE TRANSFIGURATION OF BLIND JOE DEATH is an endlessly fascinating, occasionally impenetrable delight. Complete Fahey newcomers might want to try a more cohesive effort like THE LEGEND OF BLIND JOE DEATH, however.
