"Muddy Waters' Folk Singer wasn't the only blues LP recorded with the due care rarely shown to albums in the genre, prior to the revival. Son House's rediscovery in the early 1960s reads like a Hollywood script, but all of the elements are there to make you realize that this John Hammond-produced LP, 50 years on, was one of the most important. Just House and his bottleneck acoustic guitar: his sheer presence must has been terrifying to those unfamiliar with the intensity of rural, unamplified blues. Every track is astounding, but skip straight to the voice-only 'John The Revelator' for an instant taste of House's abilities to captivate. And he lived long enough, too, to savor his renaissance."
