Son House Performs "Downhearted Blues" and "Grinnin' in Your Face"

The second number above by the long time Rochester resident posted in cover yesterday gets this endorsement — 'It Might Get Loud': Jack White's favorite song. In an old post of mine — "Jack White and Stephen Colbert Try to Out-Catholic Each Other" — I wrote about that documentary:
    I didn't know know Mr. White from Adam until on a flight I chanced upon It Might Get Loud (2008), the "documentary on the electric guitar from the point of view of three significant rock musicians: the Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White." [Did the '80s really produce no better guitarist? The Edge sits back, obviously outclassed, while Page obviously admires the young White, who combines the intensity of punk with the virtuosity of metal.]
