Hints of Fahey's early influences endured throughout his career as a composer, yet early on, and in Blind Joe Death, a unique voice is coming into focus, one that is not afraid to explore the avant-garde with journeys into collage and expressionism.

Six extensively edited solos from Blind Joe Death are included in Volume 1: 'On Doing an Evil Deed Blues,' 'St. Louis Blues,' 'Poor Boy a Long Ways from Home,' 'Uncloudy Day,' 'John Henry' and 'In Christ There Is No East or West.'
