~~A new compilation of previously unreleased tracks featuring the iconic Reverend Gary Davis, whose enormous impact on American roots music influenced many of the most revered troubadours of our time including Bob Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, Townes Van Zandt, and many others. Joining the Reverend are the equally iconic Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, the best known blues duo to ever emerge, and the unforgettable Louisiana Red, the last of the giants from the classic age of blues noted for his abundant guitar skills and soulful singing. Also prominently featured are blues singer George Higgs, multiple Piedmont blues winner, 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.

With Rev. Gary Davis at the helm, this collection is nothing short of magical. It rises to heights seldom heard in these days of electronic stratagems. This is the real stuff, as good as it gets.
