Image: 1611929 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.
The music world rediscovered Robert Johnson in
1961, with the release of King Of The Delta Blues
Singers, which kickstarted the blues rock
movement, and was considered a badge of
coolness at the time. Nine years later, as
blues-inspired artists like Led Zeppelin and Eric
Clapton were riding high, Columbia Records
decided the time was right to release a second
volume of King Of The Delta Blues Singers. Like its
predecessor, the songs on volume two were
recorded in the span of 1936 and 1937, and
consisted primarily of Vocalion Records master
recordings, but with the addition of five previously
unreleased tracks and alternate takes. Though the
follow-up was not as popular or influential as the
first, it was still a critical smash, containing the
blues standards "Sweet Home Chicago" and
"Love In Vain", and has been listed by Rolling Stone
magazine as one of the 500 Greatest Albums
of all time.
