Robert Johnson – 1st Press King of the Delta Blues Singers LP
An extremely clean NM-/NM first pressing of this most important blues album, issued by Columbia Records in 1962 (featuring the 6-Eye label.) This album, compiled by producer Frank Driggs, was famously given by producer John Hammond to Bob Dylan, who it influenced deeply–as it did Keith Richards, and many more stars of the 60's. This is as nice a copy as you would hope to find, with a disc played once or twice at most, and a very clean cover with just a hint of wear, and a light crease in the bottom left corner. This album was originally owned by Ralph J. Gleason (1917-1975;) one of the most influential music critics of all time. A central figure in the San Francisco rock scene, he helped organize the Monterey Pop Festival and co-founded Rolling Stone magazine. We purchased this and the much of Gleason's record collection directly from his family. Essential for any Blues collection.
