Born in 1896, Rev. Davis was a guitar virtuoso, one of the great practitioners of Southeastern (as opposed to Mississippi Delta) blues. In the ’60s, when Jorma Kaukonen, Ry Cooder, and others sat at his feet, Davis became one of the pillars of the folk-blues revival. But his work has more than documentary value. Demons and Angels‘s a joyful mix of blistering musicianship — the sort of stoic wisdom that’s gone the way of rural America.
