"This particular John Fahey LP is a personal favorite of many of his devoted fans for several reasons. And although such a judgment is tough, if one were looking to own only one album by this unique guitarist, The Yellow Princess could be the one. The recording sound is among the best of his many releases; at the proper volume, the effect is as if one had taken up residency inside the sound hole of a giant acoustic guitar. The program of pieces is marvelously emotional and varied, with many moments of precisely stated harmonies moving at courageously slow tempos." – All Music Guide

I still have my original Vanguard pressing of this one, but after 40 years of play it's getting a bit worn. I'm a huge Fahey fan, and this has always been one of my favorites. Now if we could only get the Takoma catalog re-released in such beautiful reproductions!
