5.0 out of 5 stars Classic tracks from a Blues Maestro
I love this CD. Rev. Gary Davis was nearing the end of his days when these recordings were made, but, his 12 string acoustic guitar playing is inspirational and his vocal delivery terrific. If you're interested in discovering the legendary Bluesmen then Gary Davis was undoubtedly one of them. The CD was very reasonably priced and you can't really go wrong with this...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as earlier recordings
These recordings were made when Rev Gary Davis was 76 years old, a year before his death. He never had a particularly easy to listen to vocal style and these recording show some inevitable deterioration of his voice with age. The guitar playing is, as always, highly accomplished but unfortunately on some of the tracks the guitar sounds slightly out of tune, which makes...

These recordings were made when Rev Gary Davis was 76 years old, a year before his death. He never had a particularly easy to listen to vocal style and these recording show some inevitable deterioration of his voice with age. The guitar playing is, as always, highly accomplished but unfortunately on some of the tracks the guitar sounds slightly out of tune, which makes listening a bit uncomfortable. There are some excellent tracks on this album, and I found "Lord I Wish I Could See" particularly moving. If you can get past the rasping voice and slightly out of tune guitar, this makes a great collector's album and it grows on you with listening. However if you are looking for "typical" Rev Gary Davis, consider something recorded earlier.

First heard Rev Gary Davis in the 70's. This CD is much better, guitar work is brilliant and sings clear as bell.
