Preachin' The Blues ~ The Cyril Davies Memorial Album Double Anthology CD


Amazon Product Description 

CYRIL DAVIES was perhaps the pivotal figure in the development of UK Blues and R&B, his pioneering work with Alexis Korner between the mid '50s and early '60s laying down the roots for a scene from which bands like The Stones later emerged. Sadly, his own life and career were cut tragically short in January 1964 when he died, suddenly and unexpectedly, of endocarditis.  

This is the first anthology of Cyril s work, features virtually every track that Cyril is known to have played and/or sung on, ranging from a 1954 home recording to a clutch of tracks with The R&B All-Stars, cut in 1963 at the height of the British R&B/Beat Boom that, had tragedy not intervened, threatened to make him into a household name. Along the way, we encounter such important career milestones as his first official recording session, his genuinely ground-breaking partnership with Alexis Korner, and a veritable host of impossibly rare vinyl releases.
