Son House "Death Letter"

One of my favorite genres of music is blues. There was a time when I was borderline obsessed with it. While I love Chicago/electric blues, in particular Muddy Waters, there's just nothing better then Delta blues. Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson (although his style was more Texas blues) were great but when it comes to pure raw emotion Son House was second to none.

Today I was surprised to see a post with Son House in the title on Boing Boing. I checked it out and they have an amazing sounding version of "Death Letter" posted. It's really bad ass and bums me out that there's just nobody making country blues like this anymore.
