内容紹介

In June of 1964, three young, white blues fans set out from New York City in a Volkswagen, heading for the Mississippi Delta in search of a musical legend. So begins Preachin' the Blues, the biography of American blues signer and guitarist Eddie James "Son" House, Jr. (1902 - 1988). House pioneered an innovative style, incorporating strong repetitive rhythms with elements of southern gospel and spiritual vocals. A seminal figure in the history of the Delta blues, he was an important, direct influence on such figures as Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson.
The landscape of Son House's life and the vicissitudes he endured make for an absorbing narrative, threaded through with a tension between House's religious beliefs and his spells of commitment to a lifestyle that implicitly rejected it. Drinking, womanizing, and singing the blues caused this tension that is palpable in his music, and becomes explicit in one of his finest performances, "Preachin' the Blues." Large parts of House's life are obscure, not least because his own accounts of them were inconsistent. Author Daniel Beaumont offers a chronology/topography of House's youth, taking into account evidence that conflicts sharply with the well-worn fable, and he illuminates the obscurity of House's two decades in Rochester, NY between his departure from Mississippi in the 1940s and his "rediscovery" by members of the Folk Revival Movement in 1964. Beaumont gives a detailed and perceptive account of House's primary musical legacy: his recordings for Paramount in 1930 and for the Library of Congress in 1941-42. In the course of his research Beaumont has unearthed not only connections among the many scattered facts and fictions but new information about a rumoured murder in Mississippi, and a charge of manslaughter on Long Island - incidents which bring tragic light upon House's lifelong struggles and self-imposed disappearance, and give trenchant meaning to the moving music of this early blues legend.

レビュー

An entertaining, detailed and sympathetic account of an extraordinary life. (Lou Glandfield Times Literary Supplement)

Recently, the State of Mississippi installed an extensive set of historic markers throughout the State. It is called the Mississippi Blues Trail. By traveling around the State, and with a good guide book, one can get a sense of the importance of Mississippi in the development of Blues and Rock & Roll in the early to mid twentieth century. The area north of Clarksdale to Memphis was Son House's stomping grounds. That area, roughly called Robinsonville-Tunica Resorts, is an area of big contrasts. It has all the hallmarks of upper crust Mississippi. (Big new casinos. Big levee projects, Big Plantation/Farms and agriculture) It also has residual poverty and abandoned and little used hamlets. (Hernando, Banks, Lyon, Lula, Marks, Ashland, and Dundee). Preachin the Blues mentions all these hamlets and their significance to the Blues. With the exception of Lula, not even the State of Mississippi is up to speed with this. This is a major strength of this book, and it should be read before anyone travels or vacations on the Mississippi Blues Trail. It would add a lot to the experience.
By the time of the Blues revival in the early 1960s, Son House was the last man standing of the early Delta foundation players. Charley Patton and Robert Johnson were dead. Son House had been living in Rochester, NY for 20 years, and indulging in alcoholism. He could have been a giant. He could have been a contenda. The drinking ruined all of this. Think of Louis Armstrong to Jazz, Duke Ellington to big band Jazz, and BB King to modern day Blues. That could have been Son House to the early Delta Blues. Preachin the Blues tends to give Son House a pass on this. And the book points out that Howlin Wolf doesn't give Son House a pass on this. And neither does the verdict of history. In my opinion, that's the only shortcoming of this book. I would have deducted a 1/4 star, but the software won't allow it.
It's a great book. But it's really tragic that Son House wasn't able to offer more.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Daniel Beaumont's fine biography of Son House 2011/6/4
投稿者 R. Weinstock - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I finished reading the Son House biography, "Preachin' the Blues: The Life and Times of Son House" by Daniel Beaumont and while I intend to do a lengthier review, I thought it would serve to state my brief impressions. He makes use of much of the existing published material as well as some unpublished material such as stuff he has derived from the late Stephen Calt's research. Thankfully the book is evenly written and lacks the nasty potshots that Calt was capable of taking against others. For example, if Calt had done a House biography, one would be hard-pressed to imagine Calt praising Dick Waterman's work with Son as Son's manager.

The only negatives include the fact that photo reproduction of some images could have been better and no discography of Son's recordings including CD releases. This book actually has footnotes which is quite helpful compared to the modern tendency of having endnotes at the end of a text. Another wonderful addition to the blues literature.

This was a great read! I couldn't leave it alone! From a preacher to Father of the Blues, Son House did it all! Especially interesting, to me, was the interaction & connection between the early blues artists, in a time with primitive transportation & communication. A very well written and interesting book.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Justice for Eddie! 2012/1/3
投稿者 Howard Bleach - (Amazon.com)

One of the finest books on the subject of blues I have read. Makes a great companion to Calt's book on Skip James, though Beaumont's tone is decidedly less caustic and defamatory. The only real villain in Beaumont's book seems to be Alan Lomax, who is cast as an opportunistic sort, but mostly, the book is heavy on facts and light on conjecture and gossip. Given what I knew about House before from various accounts (such as Segrest and Hoffman's Howlin' Wolf biography, Moanin' At Midnight), I was surprised and delighted to find that the man was occasionally humble and frequently benevolent, in direct contrast to some of his contemporaries (again, Skip James, who seemed like a pretty hard guy to like), and not merely a drunken has-been, as he has often been lamentably painted. An indispensable book on a fascinating subject. Highest recommendation.
