This release was going to be judged the third most important Fahey recording of all time in Mojo magazine's "How To Buy John Fahey" feature, but was disqualified as it was out of print. (Honest, Kris Needs, who wrote the article, has also written the sleevenote.) Unavailable on CD since the early 90s (and never with its proper sleeve), second-hand copies go for upwards of $300 on the internet.

"This is one great "lost" Fahey album,.....and you can(and I MUST)thank this company for re-issueing this title at a price I could afford!
Classic finger-picking guitar with that John Fahey sound that so few can touch. The last "Takoma" album too. If you are a fan,.....you really NEED this. No kidding.
Now ,....WHERE'S "Fare Foreward Voyager" on CD? Can it PLEASE be re-issued......PLEASE?????

"Fahey's playing is astonishing as always, but what makes this a great album (I still have the cassette) is the power of the music to evoke the hurtling, massive locomotives, the railyards, the whistles in the deep night, the one-of-a-kind moods and experiences belonging to the now-vanished railroad era from which arose the folksongs that inspired him. He leaves nothing unsaid. A mark of his great originality is that he devoted a whole album (and how many years of developing it?) to this fascinating set of tone poems for guitar. Why on earth is this great music not more widely available?"

"This cd is a true gift from a brilliant artist. Unfortunately, this seems to have gone out of print at the time of this writing. The seemingly effortless playing of Fahey's guitar and the simple beauty he creates makes one only thankful that he graced this Earth to give us a blessing such as this. Truly at the top of a stellar body of work."
