This single-disc, 16-track collection of Robert Johnson's blues is yet another in the countless dozens that have already been issued. It adds nothing new -- simply because there is nothing new to add. The package is somewhat dodgy, and the sound isn't quite as pristine as the Sony remastered CDs. The only pluses for a novice would be that there are no alternate takes or other track duplications and the price is right.
