AllMusic Review by

Robert Johnson may not have been as innovative in the country blues field as many people think, but as one of the last of the great Delta players to record, he brought a late-era refinement to his material, and with striking songs like "Stones in My Passway," "Hellhound on My Trail," and the assured "Last Fair Deal Gone Down," he certainly deserves his lofty position in the early blues canon. This two-disc set has all three of these classic tracks, and comes only a couple of selections short of duplicating the double-disc Complete Recordings on Columbia.
