@nyadrn I have a CD copy of Robert Johnson’s 1930’s recordings put together by Columbia records in the 60’s including the songs “Cross Road Blues” “Sweet Home Chicago”.

 

Johnson was one of the first inductees of the Rock and Roll hall of fame for his Delta blues style music and influence on Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, all the British Blues bands and Eric Clapton, (hence Clapton’s tongue-in-cheek reference to Clapton is God with dog hiking its leg at the thought) 


Hi @ReTiReD51 and thank you for the great post.  You are right. The rock hall recognized the obvious influence on all of the great rockers!!  Every musician owes tribute to all those who came before and most of them pay homage !!

 

I love the sounds of the old blues men.
