$10.00

Product 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.
