This Just In: New Blues And Gospel

The title of this post is a bit misleading, so please read on. We’re not featuring NEW blues and gospel this week, but rather the reissue of Reverend Gary Davis’s New Blues & Gospel, originally released in 1971. Only four versions of this album have been released, and this, the fourth, is a beautiful blue version by Sutro Park (who also released the 180g version in 2011). This is also one of the last recorded chronicles of Davis, as he died in 1972 soon after its release. Davis is considered one of the most highly influential American musicians of all-time, spanning gospel, ragtime, blues and folk, especially with his crossover into the burgeoning American folk revival of the 1960’s. Bob Dylan covered Davis’s “Baby, Let Me Follow You Down” on his debut album – and, ya know, BOB DYLAN. Check out the trailer for the recent Davis documentary Harlem Street Singer below, and this week’s in-stock list (with some other great blues, folk, etc.) below that. -MLE
