"One of the most influential figures in the 1960s British folk scene, Davy Graham
inspired many practitioners of the fingerstyle acoustic guitar of the era, notably
Bert Jansch, John Martyn and Jimmy Page. Graham is probably best known for his
acoustic instrumental 'Anji' and for popularizing DADGAD tuning, later widely adopted
by many acoustic guitarists. Not one to be categorised, Graham could be seen covering
the genres of folk, blues and jazz. Graham was an entirely British phenomenon in
the sixties, none of his early records were originally issued in the U.S. Originally
released in January 1965, this edition of Folk, Blues & Beyond is its official,
American debut. It remains perfectly named, a stunning introduction to the breadth
of Graham's craft and seeking at the peak of his impact."

BRINE   002 CD  DAVY GRAHAM : LARGE AS LIFE AND TWICE AS NATURAL        CD      11.2017

"Large As Life And Twice As Natural is unique in Graham's work for Decca. The album's
three extended instrumentals two immersive ragas and a wickedly knotty homage to the
be-bop piano titan Lennie Tristano were the most Graham wrote for any of his Sixties
LPs. And Graham never played with a better, bigger studio band. Jon Hiseman, recently
out of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, was leading his own progressive-rock unit
Colosseum; Danny Thompson was the earthy, incisive bassist in Britain's folk
supergroup, Pentangle, with guitarists and Graham acolytes Bert Jansch and John
Renbourn. Large As Life And Twice As Natural was Graham's only album from his most
important decade to be released in the U.S., which at the time went unnoticed."
