Son HouseSon House – Delta Blues And Spirituals
{1995 | Capitol}

Delta Blues And Spirituals was recorded live at London's 100 Club in the summer of 1970 as part of Son's final European tour. Delta Blues And Spirituals contains songs from several of his early albums and serves as a true historical recording and compilation of Son House.

Eddie James "Son" House, Jr. was born in Riverton, Mississippi, 21 March 1902. He died in Detroit, Michigan on 19 October 1988 of cancer of the larynx. Son House was by all means one of the originals, a true Delta Bluesman. It was said that Son had an influence on both Muddy and Robert Johnson.

This album is a compilation of several recordings. There is minimal musical accompaniment, in most cases just a guitar or harmonica, sometimes both. I caution that this is intense, best to take a couple of songs, turn off the CD player and come back to it after a while.

The tracks are:
1. The B-L-U-E-S (monologue)
2. Between Midnight And Day
3. I Want To Go Home On The Morning Train
4. Levee Camp Moan
5. The Little Light Of Mine
6. Thinkin' Strong (monologue)
7. Death Letter Blue
8. How To Treat A Man
9. Grinnin' In Your Face
10. John The Revelator

Ciao' for now, peace.
