SON HOUSE – (Paul Butterfield Blues Band / Mike Bloomfield)
Uploaded on Jul 27, 2009
” Eddie James “Son” House, Jr. (March 21, 1902 – October 19, 1988) was an American blues singer and guitarist. House pioneered an innovative style featuring strong, repetitive rhythms, often played with the aid of slide guitar, and his singing often incorporated elements of southern gospel and spiritual music.
House was an important influence on Muddy Waters and also on Robert Johnson. A seminal Delta blues figure, he remains influential today, with his music being covered by blues-rock groups such as The White Stripes.”

Muddy Waters : My Home Is In The Delta
Uploaded on Oct 14, 2010
” Folk Singer is a unique album by Muddy Waters, recorded in September of 1963 during the ‘folk boom’ period when a lot of blues artists were being ‘rediscovered’ – Son House and Skip James, to name a couple. Foregoing his electric sound, Muddy played acoustic guitar on the date, backed by Willie Dixon on string bass, Clifton James on drums, and Buddy Guy on acoustic guitar. Current reissues of the album include bonus tracks from two subsequent sessions in April 1964 and October 1964. In 2003, the album was ranked number 280 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. “My Home Is In The Delta” is the opening track.”

Robert William Gary Moore (4 April 1952 — 6 Feb. 2011), was a Northern Irish musician, blues singer and guitarist.
In a career dating back to the 1960s, Moore played with artists including Phil Lynott and Brian Downey during his teens, leading him to memberships with the Irish bands Skid Row and Thin Lizzy on three separate occasions. Moore shared the stage with such blues and rock luminaries as B.B. King, Albert King, Colosseum II, George Harrison and Greg Lake, as well as having a successful solo career. He guested on a number of albums recorded by high profile musicians, including a cameo appearance playing the lead guitar solo on “She’s My Baby” from Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3.
Moore died in his sleep of a heart attack in his hotel room while on holiday in Estepona, Spain, in February 2011.
“Red House” is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and originally recorded by The Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1966. The song, a slow twelve-bar blues, “is one of the most traditional in sound and form of all his official recordings”. It was developed during his pre-Experience days while Hendrix was performing in Greenwich Village and was inspired by earlier blues songs. Hendrix recorded several studio and live versions during his career. “
