  • Credits

    Personnel includes: Son House (vocals, guitar).
    Recorded between 1930 & 1965. Includes liner notes by Martin Scorsese and Larry Hoffman
    This collection spotlights the great Delta bluesman Son House at three distinct points in his life. Included here are three of his 78s issued in the 1930s by Paramount Records, several of the Library of Congress field recordings done by Alan Lomax in 1941-1942, and a sampling of rediscovered 1960s concert pieces, including a riveting version of Blind Willie Johnson's "John the Revelator." All of this material is available elsewhere, but having examples of these different eras all on one disc makes this set a nice introduction to the full sweep of House's recorded legacy. ~ Steve Leggett
