Description

Product Description

With this seminal figure''s early work either out-of-print or only available overseas, these 1965 sessions take on an almost mystical importance. House had quit music for years when he was rediscovered in the early ''60s and, as you will hear, time had not harmed his voice or his slide technique. These 21 tracks-12 unreleased-include his great Preachin'' Blues essential stuff.

Amazon.com

According to legend, it was Son House''s blistering bottleneck guitar that prompted Robert Johnson to pick up a six string. House''s potent early recordings from 1930 and 1941 to 1942 showcased his raw, emotionally powerful style, but never received the acclaim of Johnson''s. When he was rediscovered during the ''60s blues revivalist movement, House''s voice still possessed wall-shaking intensity and his idiosyncratic slide guitar still had bite. These 21 recordings (including five alternate takes) offer superior fidelity and significant room for House to stretch out. The first disc features his classic "Preachin'' Blues," a stirring a capella "Grinning in Your Face," and a nine-minute "Levee Camp Moan," with Canned Heat''s Al Wilson on harp. Disc two (outtakes and alternates) includes an odd homage to President Kennedy and a riveting version of the spiritual "Motherless Children." --Marc Greilsamer

There are few other artists--musical or otherwise--that come across with the sheer power and believability of Son House. Robert Johnson thought he was cool, but Son didn''t have time for the new kid. He didn''t record very often--a handful of commercial sides (some lost, all wretchedly deteriorated sonically) in 1930, fewer than 20 Library of Congress field recordings when John Lomax tracked him down in Mississippi in 1941-42, and a few more songs and alternate takes from 1965 when Columbia "rediscovered" the musician in upstate New York. He had given up performing more than 10 years earlier when his partner, guitarist Willie Brown, died, but he still had more blues and musical skill in him than some will ever find. He''s not really so old here--wouldn''t even qualify for Medicare--so don''t worry that the power is gone--just a little tentative at times. But when he hits his stride for nine and a half minutes of Levee Camp Moan...man, you''re in for a treat. And he never recorded Pearline anywhere else, and that''s not to be missed either.

This is highly authentic, deeply personal music. Despite the apparently limited range of techniques, the guitar playing is expressive, creative, and fascinating. The more closely I listened, the more rewarding the experience became. It was, however, frustrating that (although I listened on headphones chosen, in part, for intelligibility of dialogue), I was unable to understand some of the lyrics. That wouldn''t have been a problem (and I would have gladly given these discs 5 stars) if the booklet had provided lyrics.

This Legacy series is getting harder and harder to find. Buy this two-disc with informative booklet as soon as you can afford it. Classic early blues from Mr. Son House. Recording is good, considering the age of the music. Enuff'' said.
