Although I heard about this compilation last month, it wasn't until I saw the cover of the album that I was really interested - how's that for judging a book by its cover? (But isn't it just beautiful?) In all fairness, I don't know who John Fahey is, so there was nothing to spark my interest other than M. Ward's involvement in the project. Now that the album is up on Amazon, though, I see that Fruit Bats, Devendra Banhart, Calexico, Sufjan Stevens, and Grandaddy (among others) are all covering John Fahey's songs. That's enough for me.
