Robert Johnson

Genius of the Blues

Definitive Records

Reference: DRCD 44435

Robert Johnsons blues style, performed in an extremely simple manner, perfectly suits the emotion in his lyrics, which are real poems of suggestive imagery while being permeated with the melancholy and angst derived from the crossroads between the rural and the industrial, the old and the new. This CD compiles, for the first time in a single volume, the whole recorded works of Robert Johnson not counting 12 alternate takes). Since the matter is not entirely clear and a number of these alternate takes have been previously issued as masters in some previous anthologies, I have decided to choose the particular take which offers a better quality of sound, just like I have done in the case of previously unreleased material.
