The Voice of the Turtle is the seventh album by American guitarist John Fahey. Recorded and released in 1968, it is considered one of his more experimental albums, combining not only folk elements, but shreds of psychedelia, early blues, country fiddles, ragas, and white noise. The album had many reissues with various track listings, jacket designs and mismatched titles.

1st pressing with original style black label with block lettering, gatefold sleeve includes "Fahey picture album" booklet. The Notes: I The recordings which comprise this recording have been assembled from diverse sources such as commercially and non-commercially issued or unissued phonograph records - especially from the legendary Fonotone race, "old time playin'" "Hillbilly," Hawaiian and Indonesian record catalogs of the late 1920s and early 30s which were produced or non-produced by Mr. Joseph Buzzard, founder.

Fahey's trickster mission is further reinforced by the album's hilarious, mock-historical liner notes- written, of course, by Fahey himself under an assumed, rather long-winded and digressive alter ego. A quirky disc that manages to be at once highly conceptual, stylistically idiosyncratic, yet wonderfully listenable, THE VOICE OF THE TURTLE is an important addition to any Fahey collection.
