32-20 Blues
« on: January 25, 2010, 04:51:40 AM »
This my 2nd post on the 2nd day I'm here and the 2nd robert johnson song i'm posting. Surfing thru this site I get the feeling that robert johnson is a little taboo. maybe he's too "commercial"? Like everybody we need a way in to the country blues and I think robert, being the most famous, is that way. I think most hard core country blues fans (including myself) get sick of the whole crossroads story and the RJ legend while skip james and many others are being neglected.

Anyway, I recorded 32-20 blues late at night a while back. It's very close to the original.

Great thumb too.

I think you are right about the site's attitude to RJ- its the myth and the "celebrity" that people object to rather than the (wonderful) music he made.

Keep posting and as ever NS put's it beautifully, although it didn't take you long to see where it was at  ;)

RJ is not taboo here, just put into perspective.
