Blind Joe Death

Here you can purchase a copy of Blind Joe Death: Volume 1 directly from the author. Volume 1 contains transcriptions of the six solos on side one of the c. 1968 release of the original LP. These are:
On Doing an Evil Deed Blues
St. Louis Blues
Poor Boy a Long Ways from Home
Uncloudy Day
John Henry
In Christ There Is No East or West

The transcriptions are of a very high quality and are edited with all of the suggested fingerings to play these pieces exactly as Fahey did. Below is a sample of “St. Louis Blues” from the book.


Domestic Orders
Shipping and handling costs $4.00 for the continental US. All copies will be shipped USPS media mail and usually ship the day after purchase. Clicking the button below will redirect you to paypal for secure purchase.

International Orders
I do not offering international shipping due to the excessive cost to send books via USPS. If you would like to buy from me, I’ll be happy to accommodate you, but please consider these other avenues to save yourself some money.

For my international Fahey allies, you have some affordable options for purchasing the book. You can buy the book as a digital download through Mel Bay for $19.99 USD.

You can also purchase the book on Amazon which provides lower shipping rates. Amazon is selling a version that is slightly smaller and unfortunately has uneven margins. Our books are 8.75X11.75″ and the Amazon version is 8.5X11″.
