The piece ended with one of the slide solos that only he could play - sure and skilled, sensitive and moving. If there wasn't to be more of Blind Willie Johnson's guitar and his voice, it would be difficult to think of a more fitting way for his music to fall silent - Blind Willie Johnson, last recording described by Sam Charters

I never knew they edited "Sweet Home Chicago". Maybe it's good news for us mere mortals that even Robert Johnson could make mistakes.

There is also a "forward" echo present on Sweet Home Chicago. You hear the faint echo first, and then you hear his real voice. I'm not sure how it was set up to create that effect. It's really strange to hear. It's almost as if it was recorded from a speaker in the next room....

Pre-echo is a well-known scientific phenomenon. Read an explanation (to the extent that it can be explained) here:

Basically, it's print through caused by storing recorded tapes heads out, rather than tails out. This may seem counter-intuitive, but I've experienced it before, back in the day. Quickly corrected the error of my ways!

I believe, regarding the forward echo, GDW is talking about original 78 recordings, not later tape transfers. No tapes were used in making 78s in the prewar era, as the technology did not exist, at least in production. They were made from a master molded from the original wax, what is known as a mechanical transfer. Tapes may very well have a forward echo of their own, but that's not what is happening with this recording. The link provided by Tom Rushen gives somewhat of an explanation of what causes it in recordings, i.e. cutting the grooves too close together in the original recording process. The groove being cut can only effect the previous cut groove causing a pre-echo, since the following groove obviously hasn't been cut yet.

The most pronounced example I know of on 78:

Yeah, that is pretty clear, Chris. And seems pretty close to ? of a second ahead, or 60 secs/78 revs, representing one revolution.
