The Rough Guide to Blind Willie Johnson

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Although Blind Willie Johnson was a country gospel performer and really didn't sing the blues, his haunting voice and stellar acoustic slide work meant he left behind an impressive legacy of classic sides that, if they weren't actually the blues, had enough of the soul of the blues to make him a huge influence in the evolution of the genre. This double-disc 41-track set collects all of his essential sides.
