Waterman writes in his accompanying notes: “Meanwhile, the Stones were seated in a group a few rows away. They were in awe of Wolf so who was this old man that Wolf was so elated to see?
Finally, one of them came over and asked me who the older man was.
I told him that it was Son House and he said, “Ahh, the one who knew Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson.”
Over the years, I have asked people to guess which Stone it was who knew that much about the blues.
It was Brian Jones and it was his extensive record collection that first attracted the band to love American blues.”
