It wasn't really true he couldn't sing if you consider that fellow Okie Leon Russell sounded the same way--and played with Jesse Ed. "Tulsa County" and "Washita Love Child" show some of his guitar dexterity, and "Every Night is Saturday Night" whips along at a breakneck pace behind Jerry Jumonville's tenor sax. Listen also for Clapton on guitar; Jesse Ed and he were onstage handling chores with George Harrison at the Bangladesh show.

When Jesse Ed does fall on vocals, it's wise to tread carefully (or listen painfully) to what he did with Van Morrison's "Crazy Love." But "White Line Fever" and "Sue Me, Sue You Blues" aren't so bad (he takes some of those "Statesboro Blues" riffs on the latter; Duane Allman was inspired by Jesse Ed's playing on that song for Taj Mahal), and he totally transforms the old California Gold Rush tune, "Oh Susannah" in a way that's amazingly effective. "Alcatraz" is a blistering comment on the Native American view of the controversy regarding the island prison.

Too bad he died in such a tragic way (drug overdose in a laundromat). He was one of the most unique studio men there was in his day.

I thought he sang pretty good, I had his album when I was a younger person and it was around the mid-seventies when it was all good, really all good. My best friend and I went to see the movie in Huntington Park, California - the Concert for BanglaDesh and WE SAW THE INDIAN GUY playing with George Harrison - course we just about fell over and remained fans of Mr. Davis forever.

This record was the begining of three solo records that Jesse had
done. Not only does the record stand tall on it's own, but
what a great singer songwriter he was. Many artist used Jesse for his talent George Harrison,Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Eric Clapton,Leon Russell,Taj Mahal, and Rod Stwert to name a few.
Jesse joined Rod on "Atlantic Crossing" in which he replaced
Ronnie Wood who went on loan to the Rolling Sones. I saw this
tour with both Ronnie and Jesse on guitar for the Faces last tour
what a great performer he was!
I recommend this record to any one that just wants to hear some great music! Remember to check out all three ofhis records
Jesse Davis,Keep me coming, and the chart topper "Ululu"

For those who don't know him, Jesse Ed Davis was a session guitarist from the 1960s and '70s. You have heard him featured in recordings ranging from Taj Mahal, Eric Clapton, John Lennon and even Neil Diamond and Conway Twitty! This particular album showcases his guitar in a range of genres from New Orleans blues rock to southern rock to just plain good old rock and roll. Cameos by such notables as Clapton, Leon Russell and Gram Parsons are featured. A warning, though: Jesse's strong suit is his solo guitar playing and there isn't much of that here. That said, I like the jam session quality of the music and it's obvious the players are having fun. Worth a listen!

The Jesse Ed Davis album was one of the best sessions of what was the shelter records sound. Look on a good album from the early seventies and you'll likely find a shelter session man on it. I would buy an album sometimes just because Davis or Keltner were on it. This album is the best of the lot. Rolling Stone wrote a boxed review of this album(4/4 stars) There are some big names on this. Clapton, Russell, many more. The second album was ok. The highlight is a George Harrison song he wrote for Davis. The debut is one of my all time favorites.
