Synopsis

Album Description
From 1914 until his death in 1972, Reverend Gary Davis influenced a crop of future musical luminaries from blues to folk to rock ?n? roll. Born partially blind at birth in 1896, the self-taught guitarist fashioned his earliest instrument from a broom and pie pan. His style was later adopted by the likes of Ry Cooder, Jorma Kaukonen and Taj Mahal, all of whom studied under him for a five-dollar fee. This collection marks the last recordings made by Davis, one year prior to his death. Facts ? All tracks performed by Davis on both 6- and 12-string guitars. ? Unavailable for years, this title features the original recording remastered for quality sound.
 

CD Reviews

Really a pretty good Davis album
Scott Horn | copley, oh United States | 11/21/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I seem to recall some review giving this a mediocre rating-maybe I'm wrong. But this seems to be a pretty good one with mostly 12-string work. I've also never heard "You'd Better Get Right" before."
