    Two Country Blues Masters

    Unfortunately, this is one of the only videos of these two blues legends. They only perform four to five songs each. It would have been nice to see them perform longer and to have more biographical material included.

    Son House knew Charlie Patton, Willie Brown and Robert Johnson - why didn't the videographers ask him about them?

    This is a great video because the performances, short as they are, are great and the audio is very good. If you like country and delta blues this is a video for your collection.
