My songs, they have just the one chord, there's none of that fancy stuff you hear now, with lots of chords in one song. If I find another chord, I leave it for another song. - Junior Kimbrough

Blues greats re-emerge from the pages of history

In this article from Guardian there is a great photo of Skip James and Son House together in 1967. Anyone knows if anything was recorded from this show?

It might be from this 1967  festival - I had seen the sweater and glasses before. My apologies if I am mistaken:

There are a few YouTube videos of Skip James from the same settings. Search for Crow Jane, for example

There's video of Brownie and Sonny and Booker White from those sessions as well. You can watch the whole thing here, or buy the DVD, American Folk Blues Festival, Vol. 3

Isn't that Skip clapping at the end of Death Letter?

I believe so - the original UK link has a clearer shot of them both on the same bench.

The link I posted also has videos of Skip James who appears to be sitting on the same bench while performing if you are interested.
