From Liner notes by John Fahey:
I humbly dedicate this, my eighth record, somewhat autologically to a memory I have of one morning hour spent with a lost friend (and to her) near Mount Jackson, Virginia, circa July 1, 1953. I, who later chose to be free, do here present in lieu of anything else to present, on record and off, some of my illegitimate, miscegenate, but elder offspring - mothered by all sorts of variegated and promiscuous experiences, raised by hardy emotions and brought to maturity primarily by a necessity, but also by a curiosity to hear what I sound like these days; what I have become, am, have been and perhaps shall be. That which I hear disturbs me and at times promises me, but the listener need not concern himself with the problems in the life of the creative artist. And, in fact, these songs are among my best and most recent compositions.

RE: The Yellow Princess - I once managed to copy the main theme of a passage from The Yellow Princess Overture, by Camille Saint-Saens. This is a stabilized improvisation upon that passage. I began it in 1954 and completed it in December 1966, in Bastrop, La.
