If one would ever have to start assembling a serious Blues collection, Robert Johnson’s 'King Of The Delta Blues Singers' would be the best purchase.

The mythical figure that inspired the worldwide Blues revival in the 60s will forever be credited with inspiring guitar greats like Clapton & Hendrix to pick up a guitar. Johnson lived a short but impactful musical tenure in the 30s. After apparently "selling his soul at the crossroads", Johnson quickly became the best Country Blues singer in his time, however a tormented one. The devil eventually took his soul at a too young age of 27. The remastered audio of this original 1961 collection of material is simply stunning – Robert Johnson never sounded so alive.
