Synopsis

Amazon.com
This Columbia Legacy reissue of the 1965 release is one of the few recordings available of one of the blues' founding fathers. It contains some of his best songs, which have unsurprisingly become classics of the Delta blues genre: "Death Letter," "Preachin' Blues," "Levee Camp Moan," "Pony Blues," and "Downhearted Blues" are all here. Though not as comprehensive as Father of the Delta Blues: The Complete 1965 Sessions, this CD is an excellent introduction to this seminal artist's work, revealing the creativity, passion, skillful guitar playing, and rich singing that helped form a whole new kind of music. --Genevieve Williams

Poor Old Son House being Falsely Accused!
BlooZR | 07/17/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"That Charles Aubrey review has gotta be a joke! But then again, he also had the gall to give this fantastic CD a 2, so it makes me think he's just seriously off. Since Son House began recording in the 1930's, some 12-15+ years before Page & Plant were born, maybe he could have figured out that those Zeppelin guys are the most well-known plagiarists???

That Aubrey dude should think as carefully as he listens"
