Synopsis

Guitarist and vocalist Reverend Gary Davis and harmonica virtuoso Sonny Terry were two of the great artists of the rural blues tradition; both of them made outstanding records in the 1930s and '40s, while Davis was rediscovered in the 1960s by a new generation of blues and folk fans (many years after he forsake the blues to become an ordained minister), and Terry had carved out a unique show-biz career as a musician and actor who was as popular on Broadway as he was in blues clubs. Masters of the Country Blues: Rev. Gary Davis and Sonny Terry is compiled from two appearances taped for educational television in the 1960s. Davis performs "If I Had My Way," "Buck Dance," "Where'd You Get Your Liquor," "Oh Glory, How Happy I Am," and four others, while Terry's five-song set includes "Hootin' the Blues" and "My Baby Changed the Lock on the Door." ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
