Son House (part 1): Living King of the Delta

Jerry Gilbert, Sounds, 10 October 1970

IT WAS the final day of 
Eddie "Son" House's 
final sortie away from 
America. Outside, the
 rain was pouring
 down; inside the car 
sat Son, apparently oblivious to the surroundings, singing 'I Wanna
 Go Home On The
 Morning Train'.
