5.0 out of 5 stars Son House, 4 Jan 2013
It's a great book. My only sadness is that the old bluesmen were never interviewed by trained journos, in the 1960's. There could have been so much more information. Doug Leitch

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 16 April 2012
This biography is the best blues biography I have read. Although there is relatively little information available about Son House's early life, Beaumont does a beautiful job of making the most of what there is and presenting it in a coherent manner. His commentaries on House's recordings are very insightful and he makes consistently interesting analyses of House's psyche, especially regarding his inner turmoil regarding his conflicting feelings about religion. It is also very informative about the sixties blues revival. A superb book about a fascinating man, and a worthy tribute to one of the legends of the blues; I recommend it to anyone with an interest in the blues.
