CD Reviews

Great introduction to the man's work
David Mandau | Takoma Park, MD | 09/29/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My local record store was doing a promotion on this series, so I took a chance on this collection, and I'm glad I did. I'm pretty familiar with Chicago electric blues, as typified by Chess Records, but I've been wanting to go beyond that. This collection of Rev. Gary Davis's work is really strong, and the notes indidate the original label each track was taken from, making it easy to follow up and get additional CDs by him. I went back the next day and got all the rest of the CDs in the series, and I will report back when I have had a chance to absorb them."
The very best of the Rev

"I learned about Reverend Gary Davis's music by listening to a Hot Tuna concert DVD. Jorma and Jack mentioned him in their interviews. I quickly found this cd at Amazon.com and enjoyed hearing the real thing from the reverend in a very good recording."
