COLLECTOR'S DIGIPACK SERIES

Best known for being Robert Johnson’s traveling companion, the legendary Johnny Shines was one of the top slide guitarists in Delta blues, with his own distinctive, energized style. He had a highly personal vocal delivery and guitar chops that fearlessly met any challenge presented, with class, rippling beauty and absolute ease. This very special release contains Johnny Shines’ complete master recordings for the small Chicago label J.O.B. Records, during the ‘50s. In addition, this project includes those hard-to-find sessions of Robert Jr. Lockwood (Robert Johnson’s stepson, as well as one of his few and most intimate associates), which he also cut for J.O.B. during the same period. (On some of these tracks he is featured as a soloist, while on others he appears as the side-guitarist for the great Sunnyland Slim.) The two bluesmen don’t play together on any of thesenumbers. The first half of de CD showcases Johnny Shines, while the second half features Lockwwod. All these remasteres tracks, which are higly sought after blues collectors, would form the basis os Shines and Lockwwod's enduring legacies.
