EDITORS’ NOTES

When Keith Richards first heard this music, he assumed there were two guitarists. But it was just one man, a Delta bluesman whose fluid fingerpicking was augmented by ghostly, wailing vocals about love, lust, loss, and the devil. Here’s everything recorded in Johnson’s 27 short years. It’s little wonder the driving rhythm of “Sweet Home Chicago,” the stinging bottleneck slide on “Love in Vain,” and the haunted vocal on “Hellhound on My Trail” rocked the worlds of everyone from the Stones to Led Zeppelin.
