Product description

This boxed set is in good condition. The box is strong with some minor wear along the bottom edge. The side of the front lid as a crease, but the lid is straight. The back of the box has a crease down the right side, but the lid fits perfectly and the box sits flat. The booklet looks new with no creases, rips, or markings. The CD cases look new and are in great condition with no scuffs, scratches, or cracks. The CDs look new and they play great! No scratches or scuffs. The liner notes and artwork look new. This is a great value for the money!

This two-CD box contains all 41 recordings Johnson made, including 12 alternate takes, and each cut remains a classic. This set's release in 1990 caused quite a stir, selling more than 500,000 copies, and, on the basis of endorsements from Eric Clapton and Keith Richards, introduced a great number of rock fans to Delta blues. Amazingly, Johnson built his enormous legacy on the strength of just two recording sessions: the first session, in November of 1936, produced among others "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom," "Sweet Home Chicago," "Cross Road Blues," and "Walkin' Blues," making it perhaps the most influential single session in blues history. --Marc Greilsamer
