This early-'70s effort by the great fingerpicking solo guitarist actually defies what has come to be known as the "Swami Satchidananda rule for guitarists." Without naming any names, it has been observed in the past that when a guitarist decides to make a recording in tribute to the Swami – who was quite the subject of idolatry in this time period among certain performers – the results are usually among the worst in that artist's discography. Not so for Fahey, who didn't strike most of his fans as the type who would want to have a guru, anyway.
