Son HOuse's performance of "Empire State Express" especially, on the Best of the Newport Blues CD set, was a major element in my turn to acoustic blues some years ago.

Always good to learn of someone whose musical tastes span from Bach to the Blues. My turn to the acoustic blues came with a friend's country blues anthology cassette and a tune by Bukka White. I'll have to look up "Empire State Express."
