I Am The Resurrection : A Tribute To John Fahey contains 13 reworkings by such artists as Calexico, Devendra Banhart, Sufjan Stevens, Cul De Sac, Grandaddy and M. Ward (who is producing the entire project). I was tentative about my purchase because it is a tribute album. Most tribute albums typically contain one pearl in a bowlful of cacca. I was hoping that this was the exception. This tribute album is testimonial to that, and the interpretations of Fahey's songs, mostly on acoustic and electric guitar with accompaniment, run the gamut from reverent to loose. Peter Case comes closest, perhaps, to "channeling" the Fahey sound in "When the Catfish is in Bloom". Devendra Banhart and Calexico also do a fine job with "Sligo River Blues" and "Dance of Death", respectively.

Nevertheless, I Am the Resurrection is resolutely a guitar players' album, with 12 of its 13 tracks centered upon Fahey's main instrument. Only Howe Gelb has the horse sense to transpose the ragtime of "My Grandfather's Clock" to an upright piano, noting astutely that Fahey played guitar like a piano player.

John Metzger of The Music Box felt "there’s nothing on I Am the Resurrection that is anywhere near as groundbreaking or strange as Fahey’s own recordings. Yet, what the performers accomplish is still strikingly potent. Steve Horowitz praised the album, writing it is "hard to resist pushing the replay button and listening to again before going on to the next song. That’s true of every tune on this disc,.

Red Cross is an album by American fingerstyle guitarist and composer John Fahey, released posthumously in 2003. The Revenant Records catalog refers to the album's title as Red Cross Disciple of Christ Today. Red Cross was Fahey's last album, recorded a few months before his death in February 2001. The album was intended for release in 2001 but was delayed due to Fahey's declining health. The title was derived from a sermon recorded in 1928 by Rev. Moses Mason titled "Red Cross Disciple of Christ Today".

CD: I Am the Resurrection: A Tribute to John Fahey. The mostly instrumental "Variation on 'Commemorative Transfiguration & Communion at Magruder Park'" appears on I Am the Resurrection: A Tribute to John Fahey, a set that also features such Stevens contemporaries as Devendra Banhart, M. Ward, Calexico and Grandaddy. Though it's not easy to graft an artist's distinct personality onto the late guitarist's source material - and many of those paying tribute don't bother trying - "Variation" actually sounds like a Sufjan Stevens song.
