Product Description

CD Description

A reissue of one on the most important recordings from the 1960s Folk Revival. The roots of the British acoustic guitar school, folk-rock and the singer-songwriter movement can all be traced back to FOLK, BLUES & BEYOND. The recording was first released by Decca Records in January 1965 and quickly helped to establish Davy Graham's reputation. For this newly remastered edition Fledg'ling have restored all the elements of the original artwork, added five bonus tracks from two rare EPs and added several previously unpublished photographs. New sleeve-note essay by Ken Hunt.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can you say? 11 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a must;the original album from the back end of 1964,plus bonus Ep tracks from 1962 and 1963. I think the combined mint condition total of the 3 original vinyls is £300+, which tells you it's a bargain.

It lives up to its' title, as Davy Graham showcases the folk-blues open D tuning folk playing he'd been perfecting from 1959-62, turns in a little lounge jazz-blues and then whips off into Moroccan music as if he'd been playing that since age 5!

Words won't do justice to this & at this stage,Davy was a big enough cult name to do his own thing on a major label without worrying if it failed to sell a copy. Luckily it sold a few more than that, but not much more.

I strongly suggest you but this. It simply puts guitar playing on another planet and is akin to the advent of Jimi Hendrix to the electric guitar-everybody before and since is just a good or very good guitar picker. This man is simply, inhumanly the best.

And that's a view shared by my wife & 10 cats-which says something, as you know cats always have impeccable taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Forgotten King? 11 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
I must confess I had never heard of Davy Graham; before a chance hearing on Radio 2, not so long ago. Considering myself reasonably eclectic of taste, and also as well versed in popular music genres as most I was surprised to hear the eulogies of fellow folkies on various radio/tv shows for someone unknown to me. This guy I must hear I thought to myself. So several albums were purchased.
Ignorance is a terrible thing to admit, but reader ignorant I was. This Chap is as good as it gets. The album is a master musician at play. It was originally recorded in 1964 and I have never and I mean never heard anything like this man`s style. I believe the song titled "Anji" is considered his modus delecti (a bonus on this album), but This album contains several new favourites as well as reworkings of what are considered to be standards now. If you like early Clapton,when he was only an archangel,Alexis Korner, Cyril Davis, or Burt Jansch & Richard Thompson et al then you have to listen to this. Bluesy, Folky, it has tinges of Jazz & almost uniquely for the time,an eastern influence, years before George Harrison even plucked a sitar. Its arrangements and guitar style are borne of heaven. Breath taking stuff. I have played this to death. Some may find it derivative I suppose, but only because your terms of reference were derived from this guy in the first place.I love this and give it 5 of the best for no other reason. So there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Un-believable! 11 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The combined value of the original vinyls here(original album, London Hootenany & 3/4 AD EPS) is over £400, which tells you something!

However, listening to it will tell you something else-just how flaming good Davy Graham was and is. Within a minute of the opening track, he lets that famous open D tuning go on the guitar and that's it-you will be gone with it!

Even as early as 1964, there is World Music influences in here with the blues, folk-blues, lounge jazz, folk and everything else. It's extraordinarily GREAT!

This is an album you will never tire of-Davy Graham doesn't have a perfect singing voice, but that said, his voice has an edge, an grittiness and a charm all its' own, and it's perfect as an adornment to THAT guitar playing.

How good a guitar player? Well, every one since Jimi Hendrix on electric guitar has been, at best, very good. And everyone since Davy on acoustic, even Bert Jansch, Al Stewart & Robin Williamson, have been, at best, brilliant.

Davy & Jimi remain completely and inhumanly the best in their respective spheres. It's no surprise you get taken to so many different musical worlds on this & other Davy Graham albums-his guitar playing is just simply from another world together.

Now stop reading this and buy the album-this is a darn good review, but, believe me, the album is 10,000 times better!

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First off, it's a scandal that this classic album isn't festooned with appreciative reviews - why should it wait for a strummer on an island off Seattle to pay homage to this seminal work? Ask any of them from back in the days of The Troubadour or Les Cousins - Bert, John, Hamish, Diz, Ralph, Roy, Al - they'll tell you Davy was right out there ahead of us and showing the way. And this is the album, next to Bert's first and the classic 'Bert and John', that we all had. The man is *the* consummate guitarist and accompanist with perhaps the dullest voice in Christendom, but who cares when it's dishing up 'Cocaine' and 'Cannot keep from crying'. As for the instrumentals, listen to 'Maajun' and 'Moanin' and listen to timeless genius. On the other hand, if you want to hear a version of Dylan's "Don't think twice" almost laughably lacking in soul and taken at *the* wrong pace, then Davey's also your man. I beseech you to give this album a listen and in one swoop put so much of what's being played today in salutary perspective. And you guitarists out there who fancy yourselves as having an opinion - get in here and pay homage to the master! It's good to see these albums in CD and available to a whole new market.

Angie or Anji? As long as it's not by the Rolling Stones I don't care. Although the Simon and Garfunkel version ain't all that.
