Marketing Highlights

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 categorised, Graham could be seen covering the genres of folk, blues and jazz.

Large as Life is unique in Graham's Decca work. 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. at the time; it went unnoticed.
