"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 ."
