ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"NAMIDA : -John Fahey Tribute-"

All original tune by 10 Japanese guitarists.
These are Japanese answers to John's art of guitar music!
This CD is also dedicated to our friend Goro Noda, who passed away at June 7.

1. Snapping Turtle Blues #2 / Manabu Aoyagi (4:55)
The powerful opening with feeling of tears of rage.
Manabu isn't so famous but very talented guitarist.

2. Railway for J. F. / Toru Ogiyanagi (7:12)
Toru is multiplayer and the member of "HARD TO FIND", string band featuring hammer-dulcimer in Hokkaido Japan.
You can ride this train for J.F., probably for the point of no return.

3. Wail / Kaya Ogawa (4:24)
Kaya is the slide guitarist traveling all around the world and have the emotional spirit of art music.
Wail is his masterpiece, and also his sadness.

4. Requieminence -from the research on various soundings by two electric guitars- / Michio Ogawa (6:57)
Michio is fingerstyle guitarist introduced in other omnibus CD produced by Peter Finger, and he have released several beautiful solo CDs.
This is his experimental music which is firstly released.

5. Turtle Talk / Noribo Kamezawa (9:35)
"Noribo" is a false name of Katsunori Maezawa, a talented guitarist of "Kamekobo", unit with hammer-dulcimer.
He plays this long solo with the feeling of Leo Kottke by 12 string guitar.

6. The Water / Goro Noda (4:46)
Goro Noda was a great improvisator by 12 string baritone guitar or nylon string guitar, but sadly he passed away at June 7, 2006.
We dedicate this CD for him, not only for John Fahey.

7. Bicycle Built For You / Takashi Hajime (3:47)
Takashi Hajime plays gentle and beautiful arpeggio by steel string acoustic guitar.
This is solace in this CD.
http://www4.ocn.ne.jp/~tak-h/

8. Barcarolle (Scopolamine mix) / Takashi Hamada mixing by Daisuke Minamizawa (6:58)
HAMADA is a ragtime guitarist and the producer of this CD, though here he plays strange "seasickness music".

9. Stone High / masaki オ (4:55)
Fine guitarist, masaki オ has released 2 albums until now, and here he invites you to the imaginary art world of "stone".
http://www.geocities.co.jp/MusicStar/1200/

10. D' delights and/or Pile Driver Blues / Akihiko Watanabe (4:30)
Akihiko Watanabe is another fine guitarist.
This is his original hymn to John Fahey and his decades.

Mark O'Donnell

out of the recent spate of Fahey tribute CDs this is one of the best
In very recent months, there has been a surprising issuance of Tribute CDs to the late and most decidedly great founder of American primitive guitar, John Fahey. Remarkably there have been four of these. Three are quite good and one is unlistenable (I Am The Resurrection). This is one of the quite good ones with a range of Fahey-like compositions from Japanese admirers of the great one. They range from early to late Fahey in style, mostly early, which is a good thing. Purchasers will be pleasantly surprised.

I love this CD and was delighted to hear John's influence on Japan music
John Fahey would love this CD. The Japanese artists have given a good sampling of all the aspects of John's career from conservative accoustic folk to avant garde electronic. This is a must listen for all Fahey fans.
