description

The story of influential blues musician Robert
Leroy Johnson is the stuff of music legend.
Stories go that as a young man in rural
Mississippi he became part of a Faustian pact
with The Devil to become a blues musician.
Whether the tale was true or not does not take
away from the immense legacy Johnson
brought with him. Even though his recordings
were released more than a decade and a half
before the inception of rock and roll music, they
provided a solid blueprint for the genre, as well
as guitar techniques that were revolutionary at
the time.
Robert Johnson's music was only available on
Grammophone singles until 1961, which saw
the release of a definitive compilation of
Johnson's recordings. King Of The Delta Blues
Singers was a collection of 16 mono recordings
cut from 1936 to 1937, and is widely considered
the linchpin for the electric blues and blues-rock
movement of the 1960s. The album was a
critical smash, a badge of coolness during the
time, and is now considered one of the greatest
albums of all time. It was the first album to be
inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, and
greatly impacted the development of artists like
Bob Dylan, John Mayall, and Eric Clapton, who
most famously had a smash hit on rock radio
with his band Cream's cover of "Cross Road
Blues."
