Format: DVD
Shot in 1966 by American ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax, this DVD features 14 perfomances by such blues greats as Son House, Skip James and Howlin' Wolf among others. The film was shot at the Newport Folk Blues Festival 1966 but it doesn't contain actual concert footage. Instead, Lomax recreated a Delta juke joint, stocked with an ample supply of liquor, and let nature take its course.
The video quality is excellent (the picture is black and white of course) and the sound quality (in mono obviously) is very satisfactory. Considering this film is almost 40 years old this an excellent release and a must have for any serious blues collector.

SPECTACULAR & INTIMATE FOOTAGE 13 Feb 2005
By Josh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Right off the bat, I have to say that the only reason why I didn't give this dvd five stars, is because an hour just doesn't feel long enough: When presented with such astounding footage of these amazing and unique artists, one can only wish for more. The film shows these performers in a very relaxed environment (a mock juke-joint setup), allowing for moments which I never could have imagined seeing: a drunk Son House dancing (among others) to Bukka White! Having rows with Howlin' Wolf! Skip James playing three outstanding songs to an audience including Bukka White and Howlin' Wolf! I feel priviledged as a young fan of early country blues to have some exposure to this kind of footage, footage which is so real and visceral, and yet seems to have been beamed down from outer space. Highly recommended

Totally Awesome 18 Jan 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Where else can you find Skip James and Son House in the same place? Well, this is one of two DVDs that I know of. And where else can you see Son House dance?! No place that I know of. Both of these artists give totally inspired performances. Son House's eyes roll back in his head and he swings his arm when he plays. It's almost as powerful to just watch him--with the sound off. Howlin' Wolf chastises Son House, telling him that he hasn't done anything with his life when Son interrupts his performance (someone gave him whiskey...). Everything is great, although the lighting could bear to be a bit better. Also, if you plan on using this DVD to learn stuff on guitar, you'd be better off getting the Blues Festival vol. Three DVD. The lighting is better and they give some pretty good close-ups of Skip.

A Down Home Gathering of Bluesmasters 20 Sep 2002
By David Cantu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Before one starts to be critical about the technical expertise of this documentary, one needs to remember that this was filmed in 1966. All performers were at their peak of their careers and were natural and unpretentious while being filmed. Howlin Wolf and Son House had an interesting dialoge about Howlin's definition of the blues. I am pleased with the performances, the camera is blocked by a dancer or two, but only briefly. If you are a real fan of Son House, Bukka White and Howlin Wolf, you will not be dissapointed.

A must own for Blues lovers. 24 Jan 2000
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
The Video & Audio in this video are awesome. Blues lovers will be grateful, that people had the insight in 1966 to catch some of the music's legends on video. The backdrop of a few of Blues legends perfoming and talking to each other in a small juke joint provides the ultimate stage. Where else could you see Howlin Wolf talking trash to Blues legend Son House. I wish the video was 4 hours long,but I'm eternally grateful for length of video I received. A must own for any Blues lover.

Pretty good 23 July 2007
By Rabbit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is pretty good. But the cover has a picture of Son House, and he only performs one song, and not quite in its entirety! You do get to see him dance for a minute and hear him off screen talking to Howling Wolf. The cover should have had Howling Wolf on it instead of Son House, so it wouldn't be misleading. I like Howling Wolf, but I bought this specifically to see footage of Son House. But ofcourse Wolf is good so I gave it 4 stars.
And the tiny bit of footage of Son House is AWESOME, I wish it'd had much much more of him.
