Son House 7" / Jack White involvement?

Post by woodisgood » Mon Jul 09, 2012 3:55 pm

Does anyone here know any solid details about this 7" release? Info is super-scarce; looks like it came out 2010.

On the cover, it says Jack White was one of the compilers. Might this have something to do with the upcoming TMR blues releases?

From what I can gather its a bootleg and someone took liberties with Jack's name on it.

A friend of mine sent one of those to me two years ago, he'd apparently picked it up at Grimey's in Nashville. After a brief spell of poking about the web, I came to the same conclusion Grim did. Still a cool little thing to have, just for the fun of it.

Ah, I see why I couldn't find too much: The label isn't Biograph, it's pressed by Slow to Speak, who somehow get away with bootlegging certain things.

Thanks, Grim and Kali!

Also, the upcoming TMR blues reissues are Document releases, not Biograph.

I'm probably the last person on the planet to notice that the record held by the astronaut in the Roseland poster has "Document" (in reverse) on the label. But just in case there's one more person . . .
