To be honest, I prefer the later 1960's recordings that Son did. I have a two CD set called "Son House Revisited" that I highly recommend. The first CD is a recording of Son at Oberlin College in 1965, and in my mind just might be the best concert recording of him ever made. His powerful voice on tracks like "Levee Camp Moan", "Preachin The Blues" and "Death Letter" is truly hair raising. The sending disc is as more informal recording at the Gaslight Cafe, and is quite good itself, although the sound quality is pretty rough.

Not sure if I should post this here or start a new topic. This is a BBC documentary from a few years ago. I'm only 15 mins. in, so I can't say if it is a good one or not. But those fifteen minutes are well worth watching. There's also a short snippet of yet unknown Jerry Lee Lewis footage as it seems. I asked some time ago in a facebook group dedicated to Jerry Lee videos if anyone has more info of this, but no one did. I guess it may come from the BBC archives and theoretically could be from the (in-)famous british tour of '58.

Anyway, enjoy:

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Haha yes. I recall either Wolf or Hubert Sumlin explaining that they'd removed several of each other's teeth over the years. LOL

I also remember when Wolf was a "surprise mystery guest" on the insipid '60s UK TV series Juke Box Jury, where smug celebs (read: nobodies) dissed (and occasionally praised) the latest releases. Whatever possessed Wolf's manager to subject him to this farce? Of course, they just made fun of him as he sat there in his cubicle around the corner looking grim. And then presenter David Jacobs invited him onstage... oh, if looks could kill! Apparently (I don't remember this) Jacobs asked him where he got his voice. Wolf spat back, 'I was born with it!" Grin

Lastly, Captain Beefheart's grandmother ("Grannie Annie"), who came from the Deep South, remembered hearing Wolf play there before he left for Chicago. She called him "The Howling Wolf", which Beefheart thought was pretty cool.

I'm not at the actual computer right now(I'm on my kindle), but I wanted to recommend another song for this thread. It's called "Bad Girl" by Lee Moses.

Sorry I took so long to reply, Jay. What a fantastic track! Lee Moses is a completely new name on me--goodness knows how I've never noticed him before.

I see there are several YouTube videos that splice sides one and two of "Bad Girl" together. I'm having none of that, so here they are individually:

Time for some city blues, methinks. This is Buddy Guy's original and best version of "The First Time I Met the Blues".

The last time I heard this slab of raw emotion was more than half a century ago!
