DAVY GRAHAM Folk, Blues & Beyond... (Not much to say about this rare 1964 16-track LP really, apart from the fact it was to make as much of an impression on the Acoustic players of the UK as Jimi Hendrix did to the Electric players a few years later. This was the blue touch paper from which the UK Folk boom rocketed forth, infused with the rambling troubadour influences that Davy Graham soaked up during years of wandering. This copy is amazing LK4649)
Not enough room up here to describe condition, so please travel to the 'More Info' section ...

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 Love's 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.


The sleeve is the typical front laminated type of the period. There are the usual small creases at the spine but nothing really to write home about.
The sleeve notes on the back are by Producer Ray Horricks & the album was engineered by Gus Dudgeon.
Of particular note here is that the whites on the sleeve are WHITE, including the back, with the spine easily readable and free from the discolouration and laminate creasing that you usually find.
The sleeve isn't much different to the way it was when it was purchased over fifty five years ago and has been carefully looked after by its single owner ever since.

The labels are the red 'deep groove' unboxed Decca monos as you would expect. There are just a few light spindle marks around the centre hole indicating just light play [or a good aim].

The vinyl is spectacular.

It has retained its sheen and shows almost no sign of play whatsoever.
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.

No point saying 'first press' or 'A-1/B-1' matrices as they all were. This was it. It 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'.

This amazing one owner copy is is near 'as new' as you are ever likely to find.
There is no better copy out there. This really is as good as it gets and was an amazing treat to find looking like this.

Satisfaction guaranteed !
