Robert Johnson - King of the Delta Blues Singers (Turquoise Vinyl)
Considered one of the most influential blues albums of all time. In 2003, the album was ranked #27 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums ever. That pact with the devil really paid off!
Originally released on Columbia Records in 1961. A 16 track album pressed on limited turquoise vinyl. Everything he recorded in one pack. All the songs robert johnson ever recorded were during the years 1936-1937, when he was only 26 years old. He died a year later, poisoned by a jealous husband. Fifty years later, is the author of such standards as Love In Vain and Sweet Home Chicago considered a myth, and his whole repertoire is simply legendary. The influence of Robert Johnson's music still shows on contemporary works, and many of his songs have been since covered - sometimes stealed - by other great artists.
