Davy Graham - The Holly Kaleidoscope LP
Davy Graham was one of the leading pioneers of the acoustic guitar who invented and developed many techniques for the instrument including chord progressions and open tunings (most famously for DADGAD). He also inspired many leading musicians including Bert Jansch, Martin Carthy, John Martyn, Paul Simon and Jimmy Page.
"The Holly Kaleidoscope" was Graham's final LP for Decca and he was accompanied by his then wife, American singer Holly Gwyn, who sang vocals on a few of the tracks.
