Cyril Davies was one of the first British blues harmonica players .
In 1962 he formed Blues Incorporated with Alexis Korner along with Charlie Watts , Jack Bruce & Dick Heckstall-Smith & recorded the album R&B from the Marquee.
The band was shortlived and in November 1962 he formed Cyril Davies All Stars and recruited Long John Baldry for vocals. Occasional band members were Jeff Beck , Nicky Hopkins & Micky Waller. They recorded a handful of tracks for Pye including Country Line Special . They released two singles in 1963 -
May '63 Country Line Special/Chicago Calling
Sep '63 Preachin' The Blues/Sweet Mary
Tragically, the band proved to be short-lived when Davies succumbed to leukemia and died in January 1964 at the age of only 31.
