5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate collaboration with some wicked guitar October 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Being a pretty big Davy Graham fan, I've been eyeing this release for quite a while--the one thing that held me back was a fear that Graham's role on album would be one of downplayed, disappointing accompaniment, rather than the inventive, spirited and breathtaking guitar that I've come to love on his later solo albums. After finally taking the plunge, I wish I hadn't waited so long! Rather than existing solely as a side-man for Shirley Collins, this album is really a true collaboration in which each superb artist sits on equal footing, which makes the music slightly greater than the sum of its parts.

For the most part, this is an album of British folk tunes, save a few exceptions. Fans of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span, Pentangle, Martin Carthy and other major forces in the 60's British folk revival will find a number of familiar folk tunes ("Reynardine," "Hares on the Mountain," "Love is Pleasin'") as well as some that are a bit more obscure. It's pretty clear that this album was an inspirational force in that fledgling folk renaissance (before the real British folk-rock boom that blossomed in the late 60's/early 70's).

4.0 out of 5 stars A Seminal Folk Album . June 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
When the English folk singer Shirley Collins teamed up with the extraordinary guitarist Davy Graham in 1964 , this remarkable album was the result .

It's a treat to hear Shirley's interpretations of these old English and American folk tunes , but the real revelation is Davy Graham's exquisite and inventive acoustic playing . He brings these songs to life with his incredibly fluent guitar picking , spicing them up with jazz influences , and sounds from the east .

This album was an important catalyst in spawning the folk revival in England , and inspired bands like Fairport Convention , but that aside , it should also be remembered as a sublime showcase for the art of acoustic guitar playing .

4.0 out of 5 stars Davy Graham was the man! May 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have heard so much about what a great guitar player Davey Graham was so I had to get this. The guitar playing on here is awesome. I can definitely see how Jimmy Page and a number of other guitar players have been influenced by this guy's playing. Highly recommended for people who love great acoustic guitar playing or all guitar playing aficionados.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan freakin tastic May 23, 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Great recording - if a bit annoyingly separated into their respective stereo channels. Definitely one worth having for an audiophile collection. Graham's guitar work is perfect of course but doesn't overpower Collins' lovely voice. Those from the Old Country will love the tunes!
