Complete your Davy Graham collection. I was so excited this got finally put on reprint.

1969 studio album by Davy Graham. Davy Graham chronology. Large as Life and Twice as Natural (1968). Holly Kaleidoscope (1970). Hat is an album by British musician Davy Graham, released in 1969.

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 No. This recording is one of Graham's most fiery, and certainly a classic reading of Mitchell's standard. 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.

David Michael Gordon "Davey" Graham (originally spelled Davy Graham) (26 November 1940 – 15 December 2008) was a British guitarist and one of the most influential figures in the 1960s British folk revival. He inspired many famous practitioners of the fingerstyle acoustic guitar such as Bert Jansch, Wizz Jones, John Renbourn, Martin Carthy, John Martyn, Paul Simon and Jimmy Page, who based his solo "White Summer" on Graham's "She Moved Through the Fair". His penultimate album Playing in Traffic was so titled as he was frustrated by trying to learn Bach in the noise of 11 Lyme St, Camden where a boatyard used to operate on the canal just outside his bedroom. Rediscovery and death.

Even Graham's singing sounds better than usual. Graham offers some decent blues, but more interesting are his frequent excursions into raga folk-rock of sorts, especially on "Blue Raga" (learned from Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan). With the exception of 1964's Folk, Blues & Beyond, this is Graham's finest non-compilation album. It's also his most fully arranged and rock-influenced effort, with backing by a meaty ensemble featuring Danny Thompson (of Pentangle) on bass and British blues stalwarts Jon Hiseman and Dick Heckstall-Smith (Graham Bond, Colosseum) on drums and sax respectively.

First released in 1968, Large As Life And Twice As Natural is a tremendous jazz masterpiece. As always with Davy Graham, the music seems to defy categorization. Perhaps the simplest description would be "great. On Large As Life And Twice As Natural, Davy is joined by the legendary Harold McNair on flute, Dick Heckstall-Smith on saxophone, Jon Hiseman on drums (both from Colosseum) and Danny Thompson (from Pentangle) on double bass.

Talk about Davy Graham - Large As Life And Twice As Natural


Snake Rocking
I was so excited this got finally put on reprint. Poor Davy, he would really deserve a propper treatment of his discography... Anyways, I had poor hope on this, but I am super satisfied. This is a super honestly done reprint. Extremely quiet record, very nice mastering job, large sound, nice and warm basses, a pleasure. Plus a serious and meticulous work on the cover. High five!

I am wondering how the quality of this pressing is?
Flash_back
Sounds great, clear and vibrant. My first album by him... really digging it, especially Both Sides Now.

My version is in Mono with a red label - I don't have the cover, so not sure if it's the same as above.

The UK mono is Decca LK4969. I have no idea whether it's a separate mix or a fold-down of the stereo. IMHO this album is easily as good as Folk Blues & Beyond.
