Son House v. The White Stripes

Son House is one of the greatest blues guitarists in the world.  Jack White did an incredible job of covering the Son House song Death Letter by adding his own feel and style to it.  Any musician who does not appreciate the original version is not a musician.  Even if you do not like the music, just the fact that it’s a 1930’s recording is amazing. Such a natural recording – you feel the emotion.
