Curiously, the pictured record sleeve lists the years "1930-1942," but the description indicates that it includes only the 1930 Paramount recordings. It also includes that odd, obviously PhotoShopped "portrait" of Son House that someone tried to foist off as an actual pre-war image of him. Of course, this may just be an initial sketch of the sleeve and not the final product, but it makes me a little skeptical.

And the description says the record will be re-mastered directly from the scarce 78s. I would like some actual verification of that (it seems unlikely). This would be an interesting record to own, if true.

Actually it says, "Restored & Re mastered from rare original 78 records of which only 1 0r 2 copies still exist today." This leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

I didn't see "directly" in there (correct me if I'm wrong), so the number and kind of intermediate steps between the original 78s and the vinyl LP is anyone's guess at this point.

Yes, good point. I read too much into the description. Clearly, the folks behind this release are leaving themselves some wiggle room.

The web site was not too precise with their sub-text, as these seems more suitable for the 2CD set:
