the harry smith anthology of american folk music - david johansen and son house

Two songs from The Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music, although the David Johansen one (Old Dog Blue) is from a celebratory tribute concert many years after the albums were released (in 1955). I'm a long time admirer of Mr Johansen's, from when he was with The New York Dolls and his various projects afterwards, but Son House wasn't exactly a  slouch when it came to producing atmospheric and emotional music.
And he sure knows his Bible (including John the Revelator)
