This new compilation of never-before-released masters features the iconic Reverend Gary Davis at his riveting best. Rev. Gary Davis is long heralded for his driving renditions of a wide variety of gospel and blues-tinged spirituals. He has impacted many of the most revered troubadours of our time including Bob Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, Townes Van Zandt, John Sebastian, The Grateful Dead and many others. Largely self taught, Davis honed his skills playing in the streets for many years before being discovered. A showcase for Rev. Davis pounding out new ground is embellished between cuts by first releases of an amazing collection of other legendary artists such as Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee and Louisiana Red. Also prominently featured are previously unreleased tracks by multiple Piedmont Blues winner George Higgs and veteran folk singer Jemima James singing songs of “loves lost, looked for, and longed for” (AllMusic) with a sense of authenticity that is striking. Deneen McEachern began as lead vocalist in her hometown church choir. It was her stunning appearance in the blues musical ‘Standing At Your Door’ that led to the production of her first CD. Then there are The Wooten Singers, a powerhouse gospel group from Philadelphia, one of the country’s great centers of gospel music.
This is the real stuff, as good as it gets.
