Throughout the 1960s and 70s, Native American guitarist Jesse Davis
(a.k.a. Jesse Ed Davis) was the “go-to” sideman for a remarkable group
of musicians. Starting in the mid-‘Sixties, he toured with Conway
Twitty, then become a key part of Taj Mahal’s band, playing on several
albums and tours including an appearance on The Rolling Stones Rock and
Roll Circus. And let’s not forget he paired up with Leon Russell to play
on Bob Dylan’s single “Watching the River Flow” – followed by
accompanying George Harrison during the Concert For Bangla Desh.
By now, he’d caught the eyes and ears of ATCO Records, who released his
debut LP Jesse Davis in 1971 featuring Leon Russell, Eric Clapton, Gram
Parsons, Merry Clayton, Ben Sidran, John Simon (producer of The Band),
Alan White (of Yes), and many others including Delaney Bramlett behind
the mixing desk. But supergroup aside, this record is a flat-out
roots-rock classic, with Jesse’s inimitable personality bubbling through
every laconically-sung lyric and tasty lick. Never before reissued on
vinyl here in the States, we are pressing this one in forest green
vinyl. (NOTE: for those wanting to know more about Jesse, check out the
documentary Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World). Highly
