Biography

John Fahey (February 28, 1939 – February 22, 2001) was an American fingerstyle guitarist and composer who pioneered the steel-string acoustic guitar as a solo instrument. His style has been greatly influential and has been described as the foundation of American Primitivism, a term borrowed from painting and referring mainly to the self-taught nature of the music and its minimalist ...

Format: Audio CD
This late-1980s recording for Shanachie's Guitar Artistry series features Fahey working out on themes that mostly will be familiar to fans. But what makes this disc a great addition to any Fahey collection - and a great intro disc for those who are not familiar with him - is the exceptional quality of both his playing and the recorded sound. His chops are as clean and powerful as you'll hear on any of his records this side of "Yellow Princess," and the engineering is so clear and up-close you could swear he's sitting in your living room.
The last track, a 16-minute sweep through many picking styles, called "Sandy on Earth" (concluding with a string-ripping version of "I'll See You in My Dreams") approaches the symphonic in its majesty and impact, and is apt to leave you drained and awestruck, as great musical art can do.
My advice: Play it proud and turn it up loud.

So achingly beautiful.I've listened to it well over a thousand times.The added bonus is you can send away for the tab to two of the songs if you are interested in trying to play the music. This was my first Fahey album.I dont know of a better way to jump into his world. Long live Big John!

Hello all. This is the first time that I've ever written a review on Amazon.com. I've benefited from countless other reviews here, so I'm probably over-due. Well the fact that only two people had written reviews on this album put a burr under my saddle to write this review.

I have a few other Fahey albums/CD's, including Blid Joe Death, Best of 59-77, and the must have Fahey/Kottke/Lang. God, Time, and Causality is EASILY my favorite collection of John Fahey music. I bought this on a whim in a record shop some time ago. It is such a gem. As one of the other reviewers wrote, the themes are very familiar to Fahey listeners, but you can hear the maturity in the delivery and the phrasing. There is no indulgence in this playing on these recordings. He delivers the songs as if each song had written itself. No human intrusion. Just the music.

God bless John Fahey's soul for his suffering that must have been endured in order to hone his art to deliver us these sublime recordings. I am very grateful. We all should be.
