Rev. Gary Davis is the real thing. The authentic blind-seer. He is a genius with a brightly burning spirit, enormous musical intelligence, technical brilliance, an encyclopedic memory, driving passion, deep faith, a raunchy and gracious sense of humor. A mystic. He is an icon of the style of guitar he was born into, known today as the Piedmont blues. Through players of the first half of the twentieth century like Alfred Shultz, Mose Ranger, Merle Travis, and Chet Atkins, this is the signature American fingerpicking style that would so deeply inform the country, folk, blues and even rock and roll of our day. ...

~~No Mercy In This Land is a blues record. Charlie Musselwhite and Ben Harper were introduced to one another by John Lee Hooker. The legendary musician thought the two men should play together, so he brought them into the studio to record a song called simply “Burnin’ Hell.” The two remained friends and their paths periodically crossed out there on the road. But it wasn’t until 2013 that the two met up in a studio to record what would be their Grammy winning album Get Up!. And as good as that record was, it was just the beginning. Both men agree that their friendship deepened in the many months of touring that follow...
~~Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1981 by the British guitarist and founding member of Fleetwood Mac. After 1979 and 1980 albums by Peter Green were in turns bluesy and funky, White Sky emphasized rock. Drummer Reg Isidore of the Robin Trower Band continues his collaboration with Green. Maybe this is because all the songs are written by his older brother Mike Green, who sings on the title track. Great care was put into remastering and providing bonus tracks on this reissue from his PVK recordings. As the founder of Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
