Davy Graham has died

Legendary folk and blues (and many other things) guitarist Davy Graham died on December 15. Davy Graham launched a thousand guitar careers and was the writer of the much-copied song Anji. His version of Anji was on an EP disc that he released in 1962 with Alexis Korner – 3/4 AD (because it’s in 3/4 time). Both Anji and the amazing 3/4 AD blues duet are on the newer editions of Davy’s album Folk, Blues and Beyond. Amazon customers can download them from their new download service here.
