1. Karen's very favourite song is Death Letter. Verses in this song turn up in just about every other Son House song ever recorded. You can find the words on the net (all 20+ verses). The sentiments & imagery are so heavy. My party piece is to do a pretty mean version of it, if I say so myself.

  2. Thanks for that Richard. Still none the wiser! I'm an old git of 58 and not familiar with those three bands - I'll be happy to take your word for the guitar playing (that's polite speak for I don't intend to check it out!)

    (Eric Clapton & Pete Townshend are pretty good though)

    Happy New Year.

  3. I'm not a big Clapton fan, although his performance on Stephen Still's 'Go Back Home' is a truly inspired piece of guitar-playing. In fact, I'm listening to it right now.

  4. Happy New Year Richard - I see your resolution was to refuse to be constrained by apostrophes.
