(1/1)

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.

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!

Rivers:
Very cool. Back to the future!

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. :))
