Davy Graham Folk, Blues & Beyond... - 2nd UK vinyl LP album (LP record)
|Tracklisting / Additional Info:
Packed with sixteen tracks of pure genius, each of the mono recordings put a new peg down for the Acoustic guitar player. With influences ranging from his Scottish Gaelic & Carribean heritage, his extensive Mediterranean travels taking in Indian and Arabic forms into his own blend of traditional, Jazz & blues, Davy was a one-off from the start.
His classic 'Anji' had already become a rite of passage for the aspiring Folkie, but this 1964 album continued with tracks such as 'Sally Free And Easy', 'Black Is The Colour Of My True Loves Hair' & 'Maajun', which were to be adopted and adapted by the likes of Bert Jansch, Donovan & Jimmy Page. Equally at home dispensing traditional blues, folk or Jazz, Davy was a pioneer, the likes of which had never been seen before on these shores, now considered as one of the greatest influences on UK Acoustic players, if not the greatest.
The title of the album was no empty boast.
This is a rare late sixties BOXED Decca logo issue of the 1964 classic, even harder to find than the first label.
The sleeve is the typical front laminated type of the period. There are the usual small creases at the spine & a library stamp & sticker on the back with all text remaining clearly visible.
The sleeve notes on the back are by Producer Ray Horricks & the album was engineered by Gus Dudgeon.
The labels are boxed Decca logo late sixties variants as you would expect. Being a later sixties copy, this one DOES have a red 'Mono' inner.
There is also a library stamp and catalogue sticker on the label.
The vinyl itself shows just a few very light surface scuffs but otherwise very little evidence of play.
If your amp has a mono setting, it would be advised to set this from the off. These albums were pressed for wider, more round than elliptical styli, so can actually sound better on a dedicated mono setup, although this still remains mighty fine on a modern stereo rig.
This didn't sell in huge numbers at the time and its relative importance in history has only really happened in the years since when so many guitarists were asked over the years 'Who were you most influenced by ?' 'Davy Graham'.
