Artist: GRAHAM, DAVY
Title: Folk Blues & Beyond
Format: CD
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
Folk, Blues & Beyond was first released on Decca Records in 1965, and is one of the most important recordings from the 1960s folk revival. "UK guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and serviceable-to-perfunctory vocalist. A seminal guitar influence, setting standards for succeeding generations. Graham was the first guitarist to emerge from Britain whose work combined stylistic elements from Julian Bream, Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Ali Akbar Khan, Leadbelly, Joe Pass, Segovia and others too numerous to name. John Martyn described him as his absolute hero in a Guitar Player interview 75. Of Scottish and Guyanese parents, he came to personify musical adventure, his adoption of non-standard guitar tunings, most notably D-A- D-G-A-D, arguably his most important legacy. His uniqueness became, directly or indirectly, a model for Martin Carthy, Bert Jansch, Wizz Jones and later musicians as diverse as Martin Simpson and J]aso[rgen W. Lang." -- Music Web Encyclopedia " Covers of traditional folk standards like "Black Is the Colour of My True Loves Hair" and "Seven Gypsies" combine with interpretations of compositions by Bob Dylan ("Dont Think Twice, Its Alright"), Willie Dixon ("My Babe"), Charles Mingus ("Better Git in Your Soul"), and Reverend Gary Davis ("Cocaine") for an eclecticism of repertoire that wasnt matched by many musicians of any sort in the mid-60s. --Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide. "This release has been carefully remastered, with restored original artwork in the slipcased edition. Also added are five very rare bonus tracks, new sleeve-notes and previously unpublished photographs." - FE.

"Fledgling Records are very proud to announce the release of this classic album on CD. First released in 1968, Large As Life And Twice As Natural is a tremendous acoustic-folk-blues-jazz masterpiece.
