GUEST,Den Davey Graham: what a waste (310* d) RE: Davey Graham: what a waste 09 Nov 07

I have been a fan of Davy (now Davey) Graham since the 1960's and bought many of his albums as they were released.

He has always included Jazz material eg Cry Me a River way back in the late 1950's Ken Russel Monitor film. This was impressive and an amateur, but heartfelt tribute to the Barney Kessell original with Julie London vocal. But hell, we didn't have much UK competition against these real jazz players and Davy was very brave to attempt it.

I had never seen him perform live until the recent Salford Lowry concert and I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I felt it was a complete and utter farce and the man should now be left alone to seek oblivion in "night time man drinking in the bars" and spare us all the effort, ticket price and inconvenience of playing at being an appreciative audience.

Better a museum piece than a travelling insult to his past.
