Heroes of the Blues: The Very Best of Son House

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
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 trio of 1960s rediscovery 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 collection somewhat unique, and because of this, it may well be the one to get if you only have room for a single Son House album.

    this is a must for any blues fan whether casual or not.

    Son House is a staple of the blues. This is also a must for any White Stripes fan as Jack White has covered a lot of this material throughout his career.
