							Son House - Revisited (2002) 2CD FLAC
Revisited is a double-disc of live Son House recordings from the Mississippi delta blues legend's twilight years on the folk revival circuit. Disc one is a mid-'60s performance at Oberlin College; after a scholarly introduction by his then-manager Dick Waterman, House starts out in fine form, prefacing each song with long, discursive monologues that touch on a variety of topics. Highlights include terrific versions of his signature songs "Death Letter" and "Levee Camp Moan," but there's also a couple of extended tracks that wander fruitlessly, the nadir being the 10-minute "Son's Blues," a disjointed, tuneless mumble that sounds like House, a notorious imbiber, was half off his head. Disc two, recorded in 1965 at New York's Gaslite, suffers from very poor sound quality, and the performances tend more toward the distracted and half-baked. These discs are a belated official release of two long bootlegged concerts, but while the sound quality is improved (especially on the first disc), it can't be called genuinely good. With that caveat, fans will find this a worthwhile historical curio. 
Eddie James "Son" House, Jr. (March 21, 1902 - October 19, 1988) was an American blues singer and guitarist, noted for his highly emotional style of singing and slide guitar playing. He was one of the most influencial Delta Blues artists
In 1964, a group of young white record collectors discovered House, who they knew of from his records issued by Paramount and by the Library of Congress. With their encouragement, he relearned his style and repertoire and enjoyed a career as an entertainer to young white audiences in the coffee houses, folk festivals and concert tours of the American folk music revival billed as a "folk blues" singer. He recorded several albums, and some informally taped concerts have also been issued as albums
