Product description

Product Description

There are only one or two known photographs of the man. He recorded barely 29 songs between November 1936 and June the following year (although it is believed there is one additional recording that has remained unlocated ever since) and only one of these, 'Terraplane Blues', sold in quantity, with the result that his family and close friends remained unaware of his recording output until decades later. And yet, Robert Johnson remains the most important blues performer of the last century and an influence on everyone from Muddy Waters to Eric Clapton, with even the likes of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones covering his songs.

Robert Johnson is the legendary blues player that allegedly sold his soul to the Devil to attain fame. If that was true, who cares, it worked he was amazing.

No wonder Eric Clapton loves this Guy.

Every track a gem and worth every penny.

A shame he is not around any more !!

I am sure that he is playing guitar for God
even though he does The Devil's Blues so well !!

4.0 out of 5 stars The history of blues 25 Sept. 2013
By Jusitn A. Watts - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I like the album, but I wish the recordings were a little clearer. That being said, this is probably the height of quality given the time of recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Most Influential Bluesmen of America Gets His Due 24 April 2007
By R. Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are a fan of blues or blues-rock, consider your collection incomplete until you own this volume of Robert Johnson's greatest blues recordings. Johnson heavily influenced such modern-day artists as the Rolling Stones, John Mayall, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, and too many more to mention. A mysterious and enigmatic character, Johnson recorded these tracks back in 1936 and 1937, his only two recording sessions. His teachers were Son House and Ike Zinnerman. The myth of Robert Johnson is that he sold his soul to the Devil at a lonely Mississippi crossroads in order to play the blues better than any man alive. He died in 1938, the victim of a jealous husband.

You know most of his tunes, because they have been covered. 'I Believe I'll Dust My Broom' and 'Me and the Devil Blues' being only the most popular.

This is a great CD, with amazing sound for stuff remastered from the thirties. If you enjoy blues or blues rock, or are interested in the roots of modern Rock and Roll, this is a must. The Rolling Stones, Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Eric Clapton, and many more, owe dues to the forgotten man, Robert Johnson.
