Although his life was tragically short, Robert Johnson was the archetype of the second-generation great country blues players. He took the hard, raw sounds he inherited from Willie Brown, Sor. House and Charlie Patton, combined them with various styles he listened to during his extensive travels and created his own blues. The twenty-nine recordings he made in regional studios in the late 1930s mark one of the great watersheds in American musical history.
