There is other videos from the same session I think where you can clearly see Son House loungin' and dancin' it the background so maybe you just can't see Son House. Wolf is my hero and he's a wise man.

Woody Mann who apparently had the opportunity to meet many of these old timers, told me that they often did not get along and where very competitive about their playing. I also heard this about the Newport Folk festival. There is footage of Skip James performing while Son House is sitting on stage too, just chatting away. I would assume alcohol is fueling this banter too. Enjoy.

Love the tune though.

Great, Norm.  I like the wolf.  But I don't get how he was slamming Son House.   ?
