    Robert Johnson Test Pressing Group of 2 (c. 1960). The Good Rockin' Tonight Collection comes through again with uncommon test pressings from the early 1960s of vintage Robert Johnson recordings that had not been previously released "in the day". We have reprinted some historical information at the top of this page from our previous catalog about the 1960s test pressings. Judging by the matrix numbers on these pressings, compared to matrix numbers on original Vocalion issues, "Phonograph Blues" was recorded in San Antonio November 23, 1936, and "Drunken Hearted Man" was recorded in Dallas on either June 19 or June 20, 1937. Forgotten tracks from a Blues (and Rock) pioneer, straight to you! Condition: "Phonograph Blues" is in VG-EX 6; "Drunken Hearted Man" is in EX 7. From the GRT Collection.
