With this seminal figure's early work either out-of-print or only available overseas, these 1965 sessions take on an almost mystical importance. House had quit music for years when he was rediscovered in the early '60s and, as you will hear, time had not harmed his voice or his slide technique. These 21 tracks-12 unreleased-include his great Preachin' Blues essential stuff.
According to legend, it was Son House's blistering bottleneck guitar that prompted Robert Johnson to pick up a six string. House's potent early recordings from 1930 and 1941 to 1942 showcased his raw, emotionally powerful style, but never received the acclaim of Johnson's. When he was rediscovered during the '60s blues revivalist movement, House's voice still possessed wall-shaking intensity and his idiosyncratic slide guitar still had bite. These 21 recordings (including five alternate takes) offer superior fidelity and significant room for House to stretch out. The first disc features his classic "Preachin' Blues," a stirring a capella "Grinning in Your Face," and a nine-minute "Levee Camp Moan," with Canned Heat's Al Wilson on harp. Disc two (outtakes and alternates) includes an odd homage to President Kennedy and a riveting version of the spiritual "Motherless Children." --Marc Greilsamer

Brand: Wood Brothers, The
Following up to their critically-praised debut Ways Not to Lose, The Wood Brothers (vocalist/guitarist Oliver and bassist Chris) are back with their rootsy blend of Americana, Blues, and Folk on Loaded. Again enlisting longtime friend and artistic collaborator John Medeski as producer (who gets behind the keys on a few tracks as well), The Wood Brothers create an expansive exploration of their music, eschewing the more spare, acoustic, in-studio setting of their debut album for a more collaborative approach with other musicians and friends, resulting in a fleshed-out, multi-layered band effort. Blue Note. 2008.

Way's Not To Lose a stunning debut album of original songs from Oliver and Chris Wood (Medeski Martin & Wood). Like the work of Leon Russell, early Tom Waits, or Dr. John, the songs of The Wood Brothers possess a timeless quality; their bedrock melodies and astutely observed stories sound instantly archetypal. The songs are arranged just as the brothers conceived them expressive yet economical, letting Oliver's coarse, impressionistic guitar work and Chris' nimble, note-bending bass playing speak volumes. Blue Note. 2006.
Modern folk and blues rarely sounds as inventive and colorful as the Wood Brothers' spare, soothing studio debut. Currents of jazz, pop, and country also ripple through these 12 lovely arrangements built around Chris Wood's upright bass (previously heard in Medeski, Martin & Wood) and Oliver Wood's gentle acoustic and electric guitars. It's not simply that the brothers' sweet, high voices have the genetic gift of close harmony: they're in absolute synch creatively, too. So when one's singing lingers over a lazy phrase in a number like the languid ode to living "Chocolate on My Tongue," the other hangs back on his instrument until just the right, complementary moment. Drummer Kenny Wollesen, who plays on a handful of tracks, is on the same wavelength--never rushing or pushing the Woods' behind-the-beat sensibility. And the rich dark tones of the bass and, in particular, slide guitars perfectly illuminate their unhurried stories about spiritual discovery and the trials of life. All of which makes Ways Not to Lose a delightful, relaxed listening experience. --Ted Drozdowski

Michael Bloomfield was one of America's first great white blues guitarists, earning his reputation on the strength of his work in the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. His expressive, fluid solo lines and prodigious technique graced many other projects ? most notably Bob Dylan's earliest electric forays ? and he also pursued a solo career, with variable results. He maintained a lower-visibility career during the '70s due to his distaste for fame and his worsening drug problems, which claimed his life in 1981. These recordings come from this later period and show that he was still a major guitar talent.

Eric Clapton performs a live acoustic set for the MTV unplugged series which features a slow version of 'Layla'.
This laid-back, live, intimate session featuring Eric Clapton's bluesy guitar playing is quite enjoyable--if a bit limited in scope. With little lighting and frills and a small group backing him up, Clapton picks up his acoustic guitar and leads the listener down memory lane. Clapton is clearly on his best behavior as he engages in minimal small talk with his audience and lets the music speak for itself. The erstwhile Yardbird and former member of Cream and Blind Faith riffs through some dozen-plus songs including "Before You Accuse Me," "Tears in Heaven," "Walkin' Blues," "Alberta," "San Francisco Bay Blues" (in which Clapton thankfully cuts loose a bit), and his great hits "Layla" (written for his ex-wife, Patti Boyd Harrison) and "Old Love," a standard that garnered big applause. But the simple set and sparse stage can barely contain the energy that fills the arena when Clapton launches into "Rollin' and Tumblin'," a raucous, rousing bit of blues that Clapton is certainly still up for. This video is primarily for Clapton's most ardent fans, providing some heartfelt, soulful instrumental prowess in addition to an aging British rocker singing the blues as well as a white guy can. --Paula Nechak
- Eric Clapton-Unplugged was recorded at Bray Studios in London and features Clapton on acoustic guitar performing fourteen songs including "Signe," "Before You Accuse Me," "Hey Hey," "Tears in Heaven," Lonely Stranger," "Nobody Knows You When Youre Down & Out," "Layla," "Running on Faith," "Walkin Blues," "Alberta," "San Francisco Bay Blues," "Malted Milk," "Old Love" and "Rollin &Tumblin."Video Fo
