Blind Gary Davis - I Belong To The Band.mp3

Reverend Gary Davis taught himself to play guitar from the age of six and soon became a master with his finger picking style that has influenced many greats such as Ry Cooder, Bob Dylan and Donovan to name but a few. He was partially sighted from a very early age then completely lost his sight in his early 20's in the middle of the depression, he worked as a street singer playing his creative blend of spirtiuals, rags and marches. Being a reverend most of his songs were religion orientated, still his preacher style blues are very impressive and his natural expression of emotion through his vocals fused with his supplementry guitar playing mean his importance in the history of black rural music cannot be underestimated. Harlem Street Singer, released in 1960, was an impressive work, and one that emphasized his importance to a new generation of listeners and hopefully generations to come. Buy here man I love the blues.
