"Davy Graham was one of the most innovative guitarists of the 1960s and, with his eclectic mixture of folk, blues and jazz, was considered to be the catalyst of the British folk scene. His legendary Angi single was released in 1962 and would prove hugely influential on a generation of British guitar heroes. But Britain was still in the pre-Beatles world of 'Light Entertainment' and Davy Graham, ahead of his time, couldn't get arrested. So closet guitar buff and radio/TV star Bob Monkhouse stepped in and funded a demo acetate which resulted in Davy's first album deal. Now restored from a sole surviving copy, those tracks are heard here for the first time, along with a folk club set recorded in stereo from Davy's 'wilderness years' in the early '70s. The release of this CD now adds numerous otherwise unrecorded titles to Davy's unique legacy. The accompanying booklet includes extensive liner notes by renowned folk journalist Colin Harper, and an interview with Bob Monkhouse."
