Synopsis

Amazon.com
At 71 years intense, Cedell Davis is one of the great, surviving voices of the Piedmont blues. His work has been championed by historian Robert Palmer, and it's clear why. Davis is a throwback to the dark, swampy aggression of the southern juke joint, and when he attacks his guitar with his dissonant, bending style, knife raking the strings, the notes come from the most startling, strange directions. And his voice moans low and dirty. This Fat Possum release has the virtues of grinding primitivism, and in a time of big blues band polish, the soul of Davis's naked talent is absolutely bracing. --Roy Francis Kasten

CD Reviews

Down Deep Blues as it must be!!!!
Ricardo Neves Gonzalez | Petrópolis-R.J. Brazil-bluesfan@ig.com.br | 12/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd is full of great "Amp" tunes with the best of Down Deep blues from the Mississipi with great vocal and guitar with specially riffs that electrifies all my spin. And what is fantastic is the capacity of this rough musician to produce some kind of music,full of sentimental and sensuous lyrics!!Really a great Fat Possum's cd.All of that bluesfans who want to be in contact with the roots of blues, must listen to this kind of work.The simplicity is always a constant in the whole album.Cedell Davis is a great musician with rare feelings extracted from his guitar.Great cd!!!Great cd!!!!"
