    R&B Acetate and LP Group of 4 (1960s). Robert Johnson's influence on Blues, R&B, and Rock is immeasurable, but just as impressive is the relatively scant body of recorded works he left. In two historic sessions in San Antonio and Dallas in 1936-37, he recorded 29 songs plus alternate versions. That's essentially all we have! In 1961 Columbia Records released King of the Delta Blues with 16 tracks, some of which were alternate takes, and followed up in 1970 with King of the Delta Blues Vol. II, with 16 more tracks. The two acetates here (Columbia Recording Studios 33180 and 33181) were pressed September 25, 1974, and contain 14 tracks each, a total of 28 of the historic recordings. Condition: EX 7, except two skips on the 'A' side of 33180. Also included, two LPs: Rufus Thomas Walking The Dog (Stax 704, 1963) in NM 8 (with original shrinkwrap and price sticker)/ NM 8 and a still sealed copy of Doctor Ross The Harmonica Boss (Fortune 3011 stereo, 1962).
