Robert Johnson's story is an interesting one, especially since it is claimed that he made a deal with the devil out on Hwy 61 to become a famous guitar player and died at age 27... :twisted: https://www.biography.com/people/robert-johnson-9356324

Probably the most covered artist ever - one of the founding members of the 27 Club

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/27_Club

Legendary man with a legendary story - next to Louis Armstrong, probably the most important figure in 20th century music

I'm seriously considering bidding on this record - any and all opinions are welcome - thanks
