Perhaps this album picture was the first glimpse many young listeners had of such a style of guitar. It was decades before Dire Straits appropriated the image. Revisionist critical thinking has it that the later recordings by Son House can't match the music created during his '30s sessions for Paramount. Here, of course, we have the music as sports syndrome, an area where the elderly are always going to fail in someone's eyes. So much of music enjoyment, however, is a subjective reaction that so often involves many other factors, among them time and place.

Father of Folk Blues presented him to the public during the 60s folk revival. The roughness of his voice and intensity of the metal sounds from his guitar are prominent on the album. Nine tracks which can be considered as gems and all telling the story of a hard working man and the intrigues of life. The blues comes alive in subjects as women, religion, war and crime. The album features guitarist and harmonica player Al Wilson, a founding member of Canned Heat. This release is an original 1965 re-issue. During his early 20s Son House turned to the blues after working as a preacher and pastor.
Regardless, The Legendary Son House: Father of Folk Blues is another required addition to the devoted, informed blues collector’s sacred stash. The casual blues enthusiast often forgets, or is in fact unaware that Muddy Waters made incredible music before he plugged in, becoming the Father of modern Chicago Blues. His acoustic playing was just as idiosyncratic and emotive, if not more so than his later electrified work. Here for the first time ever we have all the incredible 1941-1942 Library of Congress field recordings gathered together in one collection. This album will provide so many hours of satisfying listening pleasure; to not have this in a great blues collection would be a serious omission.
