Blind Willie Johnson is arguably the greatest slide/bottleneck guitarist that ever lived and one of the most revered and iconic musical figures of depression-era gospel/blues music. He was a key influence on the likes of Ry Cooder, Eric Clapton and Muddy Waters. This set includes some of his most famous songs like "Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground" and "It's Nobody's Fault But Mine", the former being Ry Cooder's inspiration for his score of the movie Paris, Texas. Johnson's songs have been covered by Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead and The White Stripes.

Blind Willie Johnson was a fire-and-brimstone guitar evangelist who played sacred songs so mean that his legacy has gone down in blues history. Revel in the mesmerizing bottleneck guitar playing of the Texas blues preacher on remastered classics.
