Though few heard it, his debut album was a groundbreaker on the acoustic folk scene in its unusually experimental approach to blues and folk styles, though its innovations sound relatively tame when compared to the best of Fahey's subsequent work. Fahey reissued the album in 1964 on Takoma, re-recording some of the cuts, and dropping one selection ("West Coast Blues")

The Revenge of Blind Joe Death: The John Fahey Tribute Album. The Revenge of Blind Joe Death: The John Fahey Tribute Album is a tribute CD to guitarist John Fahey released in 2006 by Takoma Records. This John Fahey tribute album was produced by Jon Monday, former art director and later Vice President and General Manager of Fahey's label, Takoma Records. It contains a collection of interpretations of Fahey compositions and original compositions played in Fahey's style.

His "Blind Joe Death" album (along with Ry Cooder's early albums) changed the way I looked at technique and tone. They made we want to find similarly obscure (if not weird) tunes and bring a personal touch to them. If you're not a guitarist, you're still going to love this very excellent album (though I'm not a big fan of Track 1). Fahey equally rewards both the casual and the careful listener. If you play guitar or are into music theory, the outstanding liner notes include guitar tunings for each track. Blind Joe Death is definitive John Fahey. Pure and true interpretations of deep river blues. I remember reading one time that he wept when first he heard a recording of Blind Willie Johnson playing the tune "Praise God I'm Satisfied. I invite the reader to hunt down and listen to a clip or two of Blind Willie Johnson playing the tune "Praise God I'm Satisfied.
