J.D. Short and Son House
J.D. Short and Son House: Blues from the Mississippi Delta

This album presents the distinctive blues born from the hardships of life—especially African-American life—in northern Mississippi. In addition to their music, this collection includes the men's speech: J. D. Short, who died shortly after this recording was made, contributes his memories about Charlie Patton, and Son House presents a description of "the key of minor."
