One of the most influential figures in the 1960s British folk scene, Davy Graham inspired many famous practitioners of the fingerstyle acoustic guitar such as Bert Jansch, Martin Carthy, Paul Simon, 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 categorized, Graham could be seen covering the genres of folk, blues and jazz. He was an entirely British phenomenon, however, as none of his early records were originally issued in the U.S., including Folk, Blues & Beyond – Graham's second solo LP and first, true classic, released by Decca in January 1965. This edition is its official, American debut yet it remains perfectly named, a stunning introduction to the breadth of Graham's craft at the peak of his impact.
