"Anji" by Davey Graham.

OK, more 60's: A 19 year-old British folk guitarist dedicated this '61 acoustic fingerstyle blues/folk classic to his then girlfriend. Well known for its challenging descending bass line. This piece heavily influenced the 60's British folk revival. He's also credited for popularizing the DADGAD alternate tuning. Paul Simon's version on the '66 "Sounds Of Silence" album is Simon and Garfunkel's ONLY instrumental studio recording. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Twistin' The Night Away" by Sam Cooke. "...the name of the dance is The Peppermint Twist" - where it all started. Sam Cooke was an artist WAY ahead of his time! One can only wonder what he would have done had he not died so young.
