Columbia/Legacy's The Original Delta Blues is a fine distillation of the label's double-disc set Father of the Delta Blues, containing 16 highlights from that comprehensive overview of his '60s rediscovery recordings. Curious listeners who are intimidated by the size of the previous set are advised to pick up this terrific sampler instead.
Awesome! Great! Amazing!
Son House is Amazing! He can be compared to the great bluesman like Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Blind Willie Johnson and Blind Lemon Jefferson! If you are a fan of the blues this album is a must have! You will be compelled by the guitar technique and vocal stlyings on this record!!! Buy it!
Grandfather of the Blues
Son House is the blues. If there was no Son House, there would be no Robert Johnson!
This is the Best!
Son House is amazing, there's no question about it, but this album is probably the best one on itunes. It'd be nice if it had more songs (some of the other ones have more tracks), but this is by far the best quality. If you're interested in this guy at all, then this is the best album to buy. It's got all of his most famous songs, good quality and a great price. You can't go wrong!
