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!
