BLJ and Robert Johnson 78?s Reissued for ?Record Store Day 2018?
« on: November 24, 2018, 03:56:53 PM »
Very cool! Two great records reissued on 78?s! In 2018!

The link below only shows the BLJ record (Match Box Blues/Black Snake Moan), but the RJ record (Cross Road Blues/Ramblin? On My Mind) is also out there.

https://recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/10457

Each reissue is limited to 950 total units, and was specifically intended to be sold in person at local record stores, but can now be found online at a couple of retailers. I ordered one of each from:

https://www.fatbeats.com/products/robert-johnson-cross-road-blues-ramblin-on-my-mind-10

I?m hopeful, but not optimistic about the sound quality. I?m hoping these are new transfers from some masters, and will sound good. But I?m worried that they were simply recordings of a regular old copy. Either way, the price beats the crap out of originals!

Have bought the BLJ record, will probably take that out of the sleeve, put it into a generic 78rpm sleeve, and put it on the wall with a glass frame ... to be located in my music room as a gimmic to visiting blued nerds. :))
