Nothing But The Blues XVIII

It is absolutely not surprising that the life and works of Robert Johnson are surrounded by so many legends and stories. This man is considered to be one of the most influential musicians ever. He took the work of Son House, Charlie Patton (with whom he both played), but also Kokomo Arnold, Leroy Carr, Skip James and Lonnie Johnson (no relative) and converted them in a new direction of the Blues. He played with people like Howlin' Wolf and Alec Miller. As mentor to Elmore James and a major influence on Muddy Waters his work can be traced to the roots of Rock 'n' Roll. His influence was not only trough a later generation. There is a direct influence as well, as the first compilation of his recordings was issued in 1961.
People like Keith Richards and Eric Clapton have always admitted this influence. But also performers like Bob Dylan, or even the Red Hot Chili Peppers, are known admirers of his work.
Combine this influence with the knowledge that Robert only had two recording sessions, the fact that there are only two (!) picture available which are confirmed pictures of Robert and his lifestyle. Yep all the ingredients are there to be legendary!
The most amazing is perhaps the fact that there is no honorary title for Robert Leroy Johnson. Although the earlier mentioned compilation from 1961 was titled King Of The Delta Blues Singers, this never stuck. May I introduce a new one? How about The Delta Roamer?
