Lots of Son with great recording quality. His style didn't vary much, so by the end of this long CD I got a bit tired of it, but you don't have to listen to the whole thing at one setting. Source of a lot of classic blues licks and phrases used by others.
The artist is great. Even remastered recording though still has some rough spots. All in all a good listen. I love Son House's playing style the simple punch and rhythm of it, and all the songs on this album show it off nicely.
The blues does a couple of things for me. It either makes me feel like theirs some really amazing musiciansout there, or it can come off as depressing. I enjoyed this cd because it sounded ole and gritty. Like you were going to be transported to someone's porch in the South, complete w a rocking chair, sweet tea, and a mangy hound dog. You gotta give someone props for that kinda time travel...
This is one of the original roots of R&B and Rock'n'Roll. So far its importance in the development of popular music post 1965 has only been recognised by the modern- 1970's giants -Eric Clapton - Keith Richards - Jimi Hendrix to name a few.
