5.0 out of 5 stars Davy Graham, fully-realized: the stuff of legends! February 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
In 1968, a scant five years after his full-length debut, Davy Graham released this, his fifth album, and the most full-fledged realization of his creative vision, and arguably the highest of his high-water marks (with the possible exception of his first masterpiece, Folk, Blues & Beyond...). Not only does this album contain some of Graham's most ripping moments as a guitar virtuoso, it also contains some of the most mind-blowing combinations of world folk music idioms and strikingly original arrangements of Graham's career.

As usual, Large as Life and Twice as Natural finds Graham backed by an ace combo of inventive and reactive session players, most notably Danny Thompson on upright bass. Their chemistry is clearly evidenced on the very first track, Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now." This recording is one of Graham's most fiery, and certainly a classic reading of Mitchell's standard. The song starts out mysteriously enough, with Davy's stinging acoustic bursting single notes, with some flourishes by the rhythm section behind. Soon, Graham's smooth voice enters, wordlessly mimicking the melody. Finally, the song explodes into a galloping, jazzy riff that guitar aficionados will certainly drool over. Fans of Joni Mitchell can also note how Graham's buoyant arrangement lends a cathartic energy to her classic song. It wouldn't be classic Davy Graham if the vocals weren't imperfect, and it's a thrill to hear him strain for the high notes on the chorus--sometimes, energy does make up for imprecision!

"Bad Boy Blues" finds the ensemble as full as ever, with a sax and flute augmenting the band's jazzy groove.

5.0 out of 5 stars Folk Music ? March 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am not much of a Folk Music listener, however, there are Folk musicians and then there is Davy Graham. I can't say enough about the superb song writing and guitar playing of Davy Graham, he is above board and probably has had some influence on many of the Folk, Blues, and Jazz guitar players of his time, all on the acoustic guitar. His style can range from the Jug Band sound to sophisticated Jazz riffs and also throw in some Blues handles to round out a recording session. I would recommend this record and/or any other by Davy Graham, in fact I have copied this review and added it to my other purchases, as I can not think of anything else to say about any of the other records, other than to buy them you will not be disappointed.
