One of Weinstock's criticisms is that Preachin' The Blues contains "no discography of Son's recordings including CD releases".  But Daniel Beaumont does point the reader to Stefan Wirz's discography, once in a footnote and in the bibliography.

By the way, Philip Ratcliffe's John Hurt biography also lists Stefan as a resource, in the Acknowledgements (no bibliography in the book, and I haven't searched online for it yet).  Congartulations, Stefan!  You've become an academic resource.

Give that man a cigar....  ;D

No bibliography? I live in hope of it being online by the time the book is available in UK.

Dan basically told me there was no point in adding a discography (just a link) because Stefan's was so complete. Hard to argue with that.

Beaumont has an interesting thesis:  Unlike so many bluesmen who found religion after playing the blues, Son had religion to start with, then had a powerful spiritual conversion to the blues.  And to be sure, I can't think of anyone who plays with more commitment than Son.  Also kind of explains the sermons that were part of his act.  I enjoyed the book.

My copy arrived yesterday. I'm only partway through it, but so far I'm impressed. And I for one like the footnotes.

More when I'm done,
