This release marks a welcome return to CD for "Godington Boundry", Davy Graham's sole President album recorded in 1970. In keeping with those he made for Decca, it's an unashamedly esoteric blend of the influences dear to his heart. As well as takes on jazz standards such as Thelonius Monk's Round Midnight and Nat Adderley's perennial Worksong, then-contemporary covers of the Beatles' "Mother Nature's Son" and the Incredible String Band's "Everything's Fine Right Now" also feature. Tabla player Kesh Sathe contributes his mastery to Afta, one of the original compositions to debut on this album and Holly Gwyn - Davy's then-wife - lends her stunning vocals to "On Green Dolphin Street" and the rousing "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God". Includes detailed liner notes by Davy Graham authority Colin Harper, with the booklet boasting rare photographs from the Godington Boundry session.
