More than 100 years ago, a child was born in Mississippi a dirt-poor, African-American who would grow up, learn to sing and play the blues, and eventually achieve worldwide renown. In the decades after his death, he has become known as the King of the Delta Blues Singers, his music expanding in influence to the point that rock stars of the greatest magnitude the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, the Allman Brothers all sing his praise and have recorded his songs.

That child was Robert Johnson, an itinerant blues singer and guitarist who lived from 1911 to 1938. He recorded 29 songs between 1936 and 37 for the American Record Corporation, which released eleven 78rpm records on their Vocalion label during Johnsons lifetime, and one after his death.
