Not yet rated | write a review
Robert Johnson`s perfectly coarse vocals and mean guitar playing turned him into a certified musical legend. His songs remain raw, uninhibited and emotionally charged examples of unadulterated blues. The Complete Recordings: Remastered is the complete presentation of the scope of Johnson`s musical legacy. Classic cuts like "Sweet Home Chicago," "Come on in My Kitchen" and "Stop Breakin` Down Blues" sound cleaner than ever on this digitally remastered double disc set. When Johnson plays, it`s impossible not to notice the impact that his style had on all those who followed him.

Editorial Notes

Also available on CD & cassette on Legacy (46222) in a larger box. NOTES:THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS includes a 48-page booklet with biographical notes, rare photos and a complete discography.Solo performer: Robert Johnson (vocals, acoustic guitar).Recorded in San Antonio, Texas on November 23 & 26-27, 1936 and Dallas, Texas on June 19-20, 1937. Includes liner notes by Keith Richards and Eric Clapton.All tracks have been digitally remastered.Noted blues historian Robert Palmer has called him "the Mississippi Delta's first modern blues-man," and over the past 50 years Robert Johnson's influence has reached out from beyond the grave. Though his recording output numbers fewer than 30 different songs, Johnson's catalog has been a treasure trove picked clean by artists ranging from Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones to Led Zeppelin and the Grateful Dead. The beauty of THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS lies in its utter simplicity. Johnson's reedy vocals, accompanied only by a steel-string guitar, evoke the very essence of the Deep South with its mystery and intrigue. It's easy to see where the myth of Johnson going down to the crossroads to make a Faustian pact with Lucifer was first sown; it can be heard within the confines of "Cross Road Blues" and "Hellhound On My Trail." While the sound of Johnson's recordings has a discernible hiss to it, the unadulterated emotion resonating in his voice goes straight to the marrow, making these sonic limitations seem like an afterthought.
