Davy Graham's way of operating can be gleaned from the title of one of his most influential albums, Folk Roots, New Routes. Even among characters like Bert Jansch, Anne Briggs and Shirley Collins, Graham was by most accounts the coolest, and most mercurial character on the folk revival scene, writing what became its signature tune, Anji. Seeking to move things onwards, he impressively incorporated eastern scales and tunings into his readings of traditional music. After a long period in obscurity, his power seems undiminished.
Davy Graham now releases a new long player entitled "Broken Biscuits" produced by his collaborator and student, Mark Pavey.
Recorded over the past two years the record offers 16 tracks, and features 9 new Graham compostions alongside arrangements of traditional music from all over the world.
