Customer Review

Robert Johnson. If all you want to do is listen to his music, go onto Spotify. If you want to experience one of the greatest blues men to ever grace a microphone, listen on an LP.

Forget the trend of listening to music in vinyl. Back in the day, we didn't call it "vinyl." We called these "records." Vinyl purists can argue about the sound differences between this and CD and streaming, but this is more visceral. You can hold it, just as you could any album back in the 60s or 70s.

About the sound. Simply put: Excellent. Johnson originally published on 78s. As you can imagine, the source recordings needed cleaning up. The engineers got it done.

There are only 17 of Johnson's 29 tracks (41 total takes to get those 29). Experience greatness.
