Transfiguration. In 1968 British guitarist Davy Graham kicked off his lp Large As Life And Twice As Natural with this re-imagining of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” — a song itself made famous (in part) by Judy Collins Grammy award winning cover in 1969.

One thought on “Davy Graham :: Both Sides Now

  1. This is probably one of my favourite covers of all time. Davy Graham was an unbelievable guitar player. Folk Blues and All Points In Between and Holly Kaleidoscope were really great records of his too.
