The Complete Folkways Recordings

Although Johnson is one of the blues most brilliant and influential guitarists, it is these rare cuts that reveal a powerfully emotive vocalist. Recorded in 1967, these solo studio sessions are marked by superb guitar accompaniment. However, it is Johnson's voice that commands our attention with 24 tales of classic urban blues and popular song. Including C. C. Rider, Tears Don't Fall No More, and How Deep Is the Ocean. "...[S]uperb evidence of his uncommonly affecting artistry." — The Whig Standard
