Robert Johnson & The Last Of The Great Mississippi Blues Singers - The Last Of The Great (6 CD box set)



The 42 tracks cut by Robert Johnson in 1936 and 1937, included here on two discs are the most explosive and innovative in the history of Blues music justly earning him the title of the King of the Delta Blues.

What is different about this package is the way in which these defining tracks by Johnson are presented alongside no less than 88 recordings cut between 1930 and 1951 on four additional discs by his contemporaries and followers, making it a defining collection of Delta Blues. Thus Bukka White is featured together with the likes of Tommy McClennan, Robert Petway, Honeyboy Edwards and Robert Lockwood.

The six discs are included in individual card wallets in a deluxe box which includes a definitive 44 page booklet including an exhaustive history and track details. All this for the price of a single full-price CD.
