But Of Course

A moving and hypnotizing requiem to one of the true blues greats? Check! As Fahey, the original American Primitive guitar maestro, once said about this composition himself: "He was in his quiet way, a very great man, and I deeply mourn our loss of him. So, I wrote this requiem for him, about him, but I play it the way Charley Patton would have played it, had he ever thought of such a thing, which of course he never would have..."
