Album Review

Graham's final Decca LP was co-billed to his wife at the time, Holly Gwyn (credited simply as "Holly"), although she only appears on a few tracks. While it's a characteristic Graham effort, right down to the token Beatles covers (here they're "Blackbird" and "Here, There and Everywhere"), it's somewhat more sparsely arranged than most of his previous records.
