Recorded over two nights in London, during what was supposed to be the legendary Son House’s final tour before retirement and his last gig in the UK. Instead, Son went on to perform for a few years after this, while age and incoherency attacked the legendary blues man’s abilities. Originally released on Liberty in the UK as John The Revelator (and later reissued on Sequel as John The Revelator – The 1970 London Sessions), this Capitol Blues Collection reissue’s title comes from its balance of spirituals and coarse Delta blues… alongside a couple of rambling monologues. Canned Heat’s Alan Wilson sits in on a couple of songs (only months before his death from an overdose, age 27). Pretty intense stuff – with a 16 and a half-minute version of “How To Treat A Man” – before an appreciative UK crowd. Many thanks to ARTKoen for putting together the essential .pdf liner notes for this and all the CBC releases. We’ve got more from The Capitol Blues Collection, HERE.
