Rolfyboy6 Obtaining Son House recordings (18) RE: Obtaining Son House recordings 22 Apr 02

One of the world's greatest blues record shops and mailorder is Redlick Records which also has the greatest used blues catalog around. They've got so much stuff it is hard to find in the catalog. Many rarities and out-of-print LPs and CDs. Check out their Son House catalog.

I understand how you feel about Son House, my own feelings about him are similar (Just love the man and his songs). And yes, I'm nuts about Robert Johnson and am really tired of all the Robert Johnson BS which only obscures his excellence, and all the great foundation blues artists he learned from (RJ was in the "third generation"). In 1963 Muddy Waters was the King of Chicago. When newly "rediscovered" Son House appeared at the University of Chicago Folk Festival, without a word or any promo Muddy appeared on stage playing second guitar behind Son. Muddy deflected all notice away from himself and to Son saying only that Son was a geat man. Son House was idolised by both Muddy and Howling Wolf, and many other musicians from the Delta.
