Happy Birthday Robert Johnson!

The blues legend Robert Johnson was born on on this day, 05/08/1911, over 102 years ago! Some of his recordings have been remastered and his material has be interpreted many times. For the most part the interpretations are better due to the clarity the remastering has brought. Yet, when I was younger those scratched and somewhat distant recording added a mystic and timeliness of an era long gone. Robert Johnson wasn't the only blues man but his story and mythological existence will remain with us forever.

Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeshi! Great Version!
