I just discovered Johnson from Timeless

Robert Johnson wasn't just King of the Delta blues; he was one of its founding fathers, and these re-mastered tunes are as timeless and important today as they were all those years ago. The songs that passed into the blues canon, to be covered by countless guitarists over the years, are here: "Crossroad Blues," "Preaching Blues," "Come On In My Kitchen," "Walking Blues," and more. As far as the music is concerned, and the sound quality, this album (CD) is now thoroughly outdated by the 2011 CD release of "The Centennial Collection: The Complete Recordings of Robert Johnson". Instead of scratchiness varying from one song to the next, this original-record induced feature is replaced by a constant, relatively minor hiss, which does not deter much from appreciating the true proceedings.

Tracks 13 to 17 recorded on June 20, 1937. This album was originally released in 1961. Track 17 is a bonus track, not included on the original LP release.

Johnson’s music bridged a gap between the rural and roughness of the Delta Blues with the cool and complexity of Chicago style Blues. The album was reissued in 1998 replacing many of the alternative takes with the single versions. In 2003 Rolling Stone Magazine named the album in its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. King of the Delta Blues Singers (1961 Tracklist) Q&A.

The title of this album is to be taken literally. With his haunted pipes and astonishingly fluid fingers, Robert Johnson became the definitive Delta bluesman forevermore, thanks to the songs he recorded in 1936–37. Tunes like Cross Road Blues and Walkin’ Blues became standards of both blues and rock, but there will never be anything like the originals. When you hear Johnson’s almost otherworldly moan and bewitching fretwork, the old myth about him making a deal with the Devil for his talent doesn’t seem so far-fetched.
