    Hard to believe Jack took a run at that one.
    Son House had 'em BAD.

    Many have tried . . . and failed to match this.

    I think Jack knocked it out of the park. Especially in his live versions. Definitely one of his top 3 songs.

    Yikes.
    Someone really wanted me to read a Henry Rollins bio...so I did.
    He clearly had a big thing for Diamanda.
    Being I never thought much of Henry, I never looked into Diamanda.
    That's the first I've heard.
    She...hmmm... displays emotion....how's that?

    I read that too. What an interesting combo. Rollins & Diamanda. I recall him mentioning her residing in SD at the time. I'd have never thought.

    I've mentioned before, I went to the Berkeley shows that ended up on that album above (Iron Lady, Gloomy Sunday). To say it was intense was an understatement. I understand she's an acquired taste.

    I like the white stripes studio, it’s a youthful take on it

    While reading about Son House I found the source of the OP video. From Camera Three:

    His take on Blind Willie McTell's Your Southern Can is Mine is also not holding back..

    Can't nobody play the blues like Blind Willie McTell, at least according to Mr. Zimmerman.
