In 1936 and 1937, Robert Johnson recorded two sessions of Delta blues that would profoundly shape the course of rock music over the 20th century. The Complete Recordings: The Centennial Collection is the ultimate document of these groundbreaking sessions. All 42 known recordings are exquisitely remastered on 3 LPs, packaged in a limited edition deluxe gatefold jacket including extensive liner notes—the first time Johnson’s complete recorded works are available in one vinyl package. This set also includes an exclusive bonus poster featuring the original labels of Johnson’s 78 RPM singles, released 80 years ago by early 20th century labels like Vocalion, Orion, Conqueror and others.
