Houston Stackhouse Houston Stackhouse And Friends on LP + Download

First Time on Vinyl Blues Series from the George Mitchell Collection

Born in Wesson, MS, in 1918, Houston Stackhouse's first instrument was the harmonica. Throughout the 1930s Stackhouse played around Mississippi with the Mississippi Sheiks and Robert Johnson. Stackhouse taught the slide guitar to his cousin, Robert Nighthawk, and the two would play together on Mother's Best Flower Hour and the King Biscuit Time show, both broadcast on KFFA in Helena, AR. Playing on KFFA, Stackhouse was brought into contact with James Elmore, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, Roosevelt Sykes and Earl Hooker. Electric guitar became Stackhouse's full-time instrument.

Part of Fat Possum's 25th Anniversary celebration, this twelve-track collection of stripped down traditional blues songs performed by Houston Stackhouse And Friends was recorded by folklorist George Mitchell in Dundee, Mississippi in 1967 and is appearing on vinyl for the first time. The album serves as the next installment in the George Mitchell Collection series of early blues recordings which also includes releases from the likes of Mississippi Fred McDowell, R.L. Burnside, Joe Callicott, Furry Lewis and J.W. Warren. A must have for blues enthusiasts everywhere!
