This album may be flawed in its production, but the raft of people clawing each other to accompany Jesse in the studio is testimony to the respect he received from other professionals. Imagine, the Beatles and Mad Dogs And Englishmen jamming together.
Davis has a rough voice, similar in timbre to the other OK cowboy, Leon Russell. This album may remind the listener of Leon's first Shelter release.
Jesse's struggle with addictions brought on an early death. Taking from us an inspired, original guitarist.
In addition to his solo work, Jesse worked as a record producer. Gene Clark's first solo piece, "White Light" was produced by Davis. How those two got together is anyone's guess. The resulting album is prime Clark, and prime Davis. Unfortunately, it is out of print and is available only through imports.
Davis never made an album as good as his first; labels dropped him; others couldn't market him. Do try to find this album you will not regret it.
