        2008-10-09       Banjo / Billy Faier

i like Billy Faier's banjo playing... this album is called "Banjo" so he plays only banjo no vocals... it was recorded for Takoma Records in 1973. why i like this album... because yjis album is not including any traditional folk songs, all songs were composed by him!! so it's really unique album!! no vocals, no traditional folk music!! so i can know how great sound banjo can make, from this album! this is amazing music by banjo!! Billy Faier started to play banjo in 1940s, and still now he is playing!!! maybe you know his famous album "Travelin' Man"... so people calls him "the best 5 string banjo man"... i like this kind of folk instruments play other music... of course almost records with this idea are so boring... but sometime i can find great records!! if musician knows his instrument, he can play any music!! so i have same idea, i really want to play like symphony by electric guitar with bow... though i've already played something like this, i'd like to play more real symphony!!!
he talked about this album "I think the best music I have played on record is the album BANJO which I did for Takoma in 1973."
this album was reissued on cd too, but B-4 was not included... i don't know why he didn't put it on cd... it's also beautiful track too!!!
