Artist: GRAHAM, DAVY
Title: Folk, Blues, & Beyond...
Format: LP
Label: Bread and Wine
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"One of the most influential figures in the 1960s British folk scene, Davy Graham inspired many practitioners of the fingerstyle 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 categorised, 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 and Beyond is its official, American debut. It remains perfectly named, a stunning introduction to the breadth of Grahams craft and seeking at the peak of his impact." - Bread and Wine.

Artist: GRAHAM, DAVY
Title: Large as Life and Twice as Natural
Format: LP
Label: Bread and Wine
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Large as Life and Twice As Natural is unique in Grahams work for Decca. The albums three extended instrumentals two immersive ragas and a wickedly knotty homage to the be-bop piano titan Lennie Tristano were the most Graham wrote for any of his Sixties LPs. And Graham never played with a better, bigger studio band. Jon Hiseman, recently out of John Mayalls Bluesbreakers, was leading his own progressive-rock unit Colosseum; Danny Thompson was the earthy, incisive bassist in Britains folk supergroup, Pentangle, with guitarists and Graham acolytes Bert Jansch and John Renbourn. Large as Life and Twice as Natural was Grahams only album from his most important decade to be released in the U.S., at the time it went unnoticed." - Bread and Wine.
