Description

10 inch microgroove 78 RPM single plays on standard turntables. Vinyl is housed in a reproduction of the original sleeve with period correct labels. As a youth Robert Johnson learned to play the harmonica, and according to Son House, Johnson was pretty good at it. His real ambition was to master the guitar and sometimes during a break when his idols Son House and Willie Brown performed he would pick up one the guitars and try playing it himself annoying his idols. House’s story of the events: “Such a racket you never heard. It’d make the people mad. I’d come back in I’d scold him about it. Don’t do that Robert. You drive the people nuts. You can’t play nothing.” Driven by the negative response to his inadequate abilities on the guitar, Johnson disappears for a year or two, returning with stunning results as a master of the Mississippi Delta blues style not only absorbing the immediate influences of his mentors but perfecting his craft one step further with unprecedented intensity creating a guitar mastery and expressive vocal emotion that radiates and inspires to this day.

For RSD Black Friday 2019 Traffic Entertainment presents two of Johnson’s most iconic sides as a 78 RPM microgroove 10” record housed in a glorious reproduction of the Vocalion sleeve wrapped in a full colour OBI with detailed liner notes.

Playlist

Drift Recommends


Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
