I'm not much of a folky, let alone a guitarist, but years ago I actually saw Dave Evans perform live doing some of these, eyes closed with a beatific smile on his face! His skills, I can confirm, were all him and no digital enhancements would be necessary. This reissued CD is all bluesy folk rhythmic finger-picking guitar, all original and every one of the numbers is fascinating and beautiful to hear. I'd mention Bert Jansch, Donovan, Nick Drake etc, and you might think he's but a slight reflection of those giants. I'm sure he had his influences but he copied no-one. He never got famous simply because he didn't live in London, just like a thousand and one other brilliant musicians all over the country then and now. Neither did he kowtow to the demands of the buying public. Class.
