I know I'm not mistaken.

Robert Johnson recorded 29 different songs, correct, but only recorded 12 alternate takes. I've got the double album in front of me, 20 tracks on Disc 1, 21 tracks on Disc 2.

41 recordings.

Sorry, but your figures are out-dated. Another alternate take of one of his songs was discovered in recent years, making a total of 42 recordings.

If you only possess 41 recordings, you do NOT have his complete recordings:

"Including the material that never saw issuance on 78's, there are 29 compositions and alternate versions of nearly half of them. Including the recent discovery of a previously unknown alternate take of one of Johnson's recordings, a total of 42 recordings remain to this day"

Interesting. I've had the "Complete Recordings" box set for about twelve years. Looks like it's time to update.

Default Robert Johnson

Another one of my creations....



This week, I looked at the rather mysterious Robert Johnson, all hype or rightfully idolised? Well Keith Richards and Eric Clapton can't be wrong can they?

Dying at 27 we'll never know what he could have achieved, but what he did achieve in his short life surely puts him up there with the greats?

Over to you merry lot for a big mass debate.

It's impossible to cover Stop Breakin' Down Blues and for it not to be good.

Robert Johnson ftw .I prefer Skip James tho unfortunately a large chunk of his original recordings are nigh-on unlistenable sound-quality wise.

Classic stuff but I have to admit to rarely listening to him but his recordings should be on everyones HD at least.
