"The blues is not a plaything like some people think they are."
 Son House

"He was the mentor for both Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson, and if in his prime had been recorded as much as Charlie Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson or Robert Johnson, he would be considered the pre-eminent artist of his time. He would have his proper appreciation."
 Dick Waterman, blues historian and photographer
