Davy Graham needs no introduction here, as he is one of the UK’s most influential and legendary guitarists. Drawing on influences as diverse as folk, jazz and blues, “Godington Boundry” is one of his later classics, which has (incredibly) been out of print on vinyl for decades. Taken from the original analogue studio master tapes.
“With his unorthodox playing style, Davy Graham exploded onto the 1960s folk scene to become one of the UK’s most influential guitarists. Drawing upon diverse folk, jazz and blues influences Davy flew in the face of what was then deemed commercial, recording a string of critically-acclaimed albums that reflected his exotic tastes. Revered by his peers as much for his guitar prowess and for his musical integrity, he is widely credited as the founder of ‘baroque folk’ and broke new ground when he introduced elements of what might now be termed ‘world music’ into his work. In keeping with the records Graham made for Decca, “Godington Boundry” is an unashamedly esoteric blend of the influences dear to his heart. As well as takes on the perennial ‘Worksong,’ then-contemporary covers of the Beatles’ ‘Mother Nature’s Son’ and the Incredible String Band’s ’Everything’s Fine Right Now,’ jazz standards such as ‘Round Midnight’ are also featured. Tabla player Kesh Sathe contributes his mastery to ‘Afta’ and ‘Nadu Silva,’ and Holly Gwyn lends her stunning vocals to ‘On Green Dolphin Street’ and the rousing ‘A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.’ Enjoying cult status for a new generation of fans, Davy Graham’s mystique endures and he remains one of the UK’s foremost guitar greats.By lightintheattic
