Davy Graham - Folk, Blues & Beyond LP
Label: Bread And Wine
One of the most influential figures in the 1960s British folk scene, Davy Graham inspired many practitioners of the finger-style acoustic guitar of the era, notably Bert Jansch, John Martyn and Jimmy Page. Graham is probably best known for his acoustic instrumental Anji and for popularizing DADGAD tuning, later widely adopted by many acoustic guitarists. Not one to be categorized, Graham could be seen covering the genres of folk, blues and jazz.
Graham was an entirely British phenomenon in the sixties, none of his early records were originally issued in the U.S. Originally released in January 1965, this edition of Folk, Blues & Beyond is its official, American debut. It remains perfectly named, a stunning introduction to the breadth of Graham's craft and seeking at the peak of his impact.
