John Fahey & His Orchestra - Of Rivers And Religion / After The Ball FLAC album

Background Music Imagination Maverick Sunday Afternoon. John Fahey, John Fahey & His Orchestra. Of Rivers & Religion/After the Ball. This German Warner Bros. reissue is a nice repackaging of the late John Fahey's 1972 album Of Rivers & Religion and his wonderfully genteel 1973 release After the Ball from his all too brief sojourn with the label. These recordings represent a shift for Fahey, playing both solo and with an ensemble. On Of Rivers & Religion, the ensemble included many of the New Orleans players who performed on Walt Disney's Song of the South film soundtrack. Gorgeous, slow, ringing slide and fingerplucked tones establish easy themes before the band enters with clarinets, banjos, and trumpets.

After the Ball is an album by the American folk musician John Fahey, released in 1973. It was his second and last recording on the Reprise label and like its predecessor, Of Rivers and Religion, it sold poorly. Following in the same mold as Fahey's first album with Reprise, Of Rivers and Religion, accompanists were used on most of the material. Denny Bruce was once again co-producer and many of the musicians were the same. Jack Feierman again wrote the ensemble arrangements

Some of it, like the two albums he recorded for the Reprise label in the 1970s, Of Rivers and Religion and After the Ball, feature a Dixieland orchestra, and are very much an acquired taste. Likewise, for different reasons, the late works he recorded in the 90s on the Revenant label, on which he played effects-laden electric guitar and drifted into some inner zone that is hard, at times, for this devoted listener to connect with. Then again, Fahey was always impulsive and unpredictable.

Pairing Fahey with what appears to be a Dixieland revival band, After the Ball, Fahey's second and last Reprise release, stands as one of the stranger recordings of his enigmatic career. Fingerstyle guitarist John Fahey followed on the success of his first Christmas record, 1968's The New Possibility, with this 1975 title. Genre: POP, CHRISTMAS, CHANUKKAH.

John Fahey is the man who introduced the stream of consciousness into folk music, and turned folk music into classical music, and then made it cross the boundaries of western and eastern music. The spiritual father of the "american primitive guitar", Fahey turned the guitar solo into a metaphysical exercise.
