Pure Religion and Bad Company

Pure Religion and Bad Company

A stunning mixture of gospel vocals and deftly played blues and ragtime instrumentals from the guitar playing evangelist. Recordings from 1957 demonstrate Davis's amazing ability to both sing and play with a passion and skill unparalleled. They also contain the first recorded performances of the Davis classics Hesitation Blues and Cocaine Blues. Reverend Gary Davis remains one of America's truly great folk artists. "...[M]andatory listening...the single best source of his passionate singing and playing..." (One of the top five blues releases of 1991) — Pulse!
