Skip James-1931 Sessions

I'm guessing most people have this by now as James gained so much notoriety from being covered in the abysmal O, Brother Where Out Thou? So maybe your mom likes him too. Who knows. Who cares. But this is the real creeping haunt. What voices achieve such pained expression? You listen to "Devil got my Woman" (yeah, i know, obvious choice, but for a reason). And the elemental guitar only heightens the suffering. And since I'm dumb, last night I kept referring to him as Skip Spence, but now that I think about it, they both to seem to being drinking from the same well of despair at times.
