Davy Graham - The Holly Kaleidoscope (1970)

Davy Graham was a British guitarist, considered one of the most innovative and influential players of fingerstyle acoustic guitar.

The Holly Kaleidoscope was Davy Graham's last album on Decca records, the Holly of the title being his wife, who contributed guest vocals to many of the songs. Overall the album was a much gentler and more laid back affair than his earlier releases, with sparser arrangements, mostly without bass or drums. It had some excellent originals and some obscure covers, plus a few well known compositions from his two usual sources for pop covers - The Beatles ("Blackbird" and "Here, There And Everywhere") and Paul Simon ("Flowers Never Bend With The Rainfall" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water"). The result was a fine album that didn't match its predecessors in terms on innovation and experimentation, but made up for it with its pleasant, melodic charm.
