Son House Talks About The Blues

Let's be honest, most of the blues that you'll find at local bars this weekend is a far cry from the true blues of the pre-war era. Even compared to Muddy Waters' electrified blues, the stuff from today doesn't come close. The development of the term 'blues' into more of a rock n' roll jump sound with SRV licks thrown in is a bit questionable to me. Just listen to the words of Son House - it's way too true.
