Robert Johnson – 1962 UK First Pressing LP “Classic Jazz Masters 1936 – 1937”
A UK first pressing of Robert Johnson 1936-1937, issued as part of Phillips Records Classic Jazz Masters series in 1962. This was the first Robert Johnson album issued in the UK, and was tremendously influential to the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and many others. It features the same tracks as the US Columbia King of the Delta Blues Singers album, but has a altogether different gatefold album cover (the Columbia/CBS album wasn’t released in the UK until 1965). The high quality disc is in Near Mint condition and looks barely played; the cover is Near Mint- with some barely noticeable splitting to the cloth hinged spine. Only the second copy we’ve had, and in superb condition.
