    Description

    Robert Johnson "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom"/ "Dead Shrimp Blues" 78 (Conqueror 8871, 1937). Extremely rare release on this label, much rarer than the Vocalion counterpart, which, of course, is plenty rare itself! How rare? Good Rockin' Tonight indicated in 2001 that fewer than five copies were known to exist. Considering the age and the significance of this treasure, the grade makes it very desirable, and, in fact, the record plays better than it looks. You may not see another copy of this in any grade! Condition: GD-VG 4, plays VG 5.
