Davy Graham & Holly Godington Boundry Import LP
Limited Edition Import Vinyl LP - Only 500 Copies!
Cut From Original Analogue Studio Master Tapes!
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."
