This is an unreleased original John Fahey album. Written, recorded and completed at the same time as 'Old Girlfriends And Other Horrible Memories'. There is no artwork for this and would probably have been on the Varrick label if originally released.
'Dorothy Gooch, Part 2' was originally intended to have lyrics, but was never completed. The second part is a re-recording of 'Voice Of The Turtle' track.
'Two American Hymns' is a re-recording from 'Yes! Jesus Loves Me'.
'In The Still Of The Night' is a cover of the hit record by The 5 Satins.
'Banjo Street' is a new composition.
'My Prayer' is a cover of a single by The Platters.
'Springtime In Azalea City' is from Fahey's own archives and dates from 1965/66.
'Our Lady Of Sorrows' is a new version of 'The Voice Of The Turtle'.
