Synopsis

Album Description
Best known as the author of Stevie Ray Vaughan's hit " Texas Flood." Until his untimely passing in 1994, Larry Davis was widely recognized as a blues treasure, and this is one of his all-time best records. The late Arkansas native had been a widely-respected cult favorite in blues circles since his first records for Houston's Duke label years ago. In the late '60s, he began to develop a distinctive lead guitar style; he also played bass, touring in Albert King's band. In 1982, he won four prestigious W.C. Handy awards, including Artist of the Year. "Sooner or Later" was recorded in Memphis, and includes backing from the Memphis Horns.

CD Reviews

Soulful blues.
Michael S. Moreland | 03/26/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This release should have been a breakthrough for Larry Davis. His voice may not be the smoothest ever recorded but what he lacks in tone he more than makes up in feeling. Give "Penitentiary Blues" a listen, you'll know what I mean. It's unfortunate that Larry Davis passed on in 1994 without ever receiving the mainstream credit he deserved. But isn't that common for many bluesmen of his generation?"
Don't miss this guy's music!
Michael S. Moreland | New York, New York United States | 10/17/2001

"If you haven't heard this guy, you should. Soulful, smooth voice and fluid guitar. Nothing fancy, just heartfelt blues you can kick back and enjoy the groove with. He'll be missed."
LISTEN ONCE AND YOU'LL BE A FAN!!!

"I found this gem in a pawn shop many years ago and it is still one of my favorites.The music on this CD is some of the best blues you'll ever hear. I don't know why this man isn't famous because he certainly should be."
