John Fahey - Aurora, Oregon 1999

This is from Fahey's electric phase,  not eclectic, that would be his whole career, eh?  Death Don't have no Mercy in This Land has some classic Fahey chatter just before the tune.  So actually at the end of track two, where he starts off telling us how he stole this song (sound familiar?) but recants on a technically, hilarious   Then tells us the difference between spirituals and gospel songs concluding with, "...hardly anybody knows that, I hardly know it myself."  Ha!!
Another gem from Damian.
