Cyril Davies

Kris Needs, Record Collector, January 2015

"It is interesting to look back to the birth of the British blues scene when one man pioneered a sound that was to give incentive to every group of that time. This man was the late Cyril Davies. Robbed by an early death of the fruits of his labors, he and his group the All Stars showed the path to many."

— Jimmy Page,

"I don't like to see the music messed about with. I like it straight."
