AllMusic Review by

With the copyright laws being what they currently are, almost anybody can put out certain material that slips through the slender thread of what's protected. Such is the case with the original recordings of Robert Johnson, making this two-disc set of all of his known extant games fair game for whoever wants to put it out. While this set sounds decent enough, it doesn't sound as good as the official Columbia issue nor does it feature anywhere near as good liner notes; the ones included here are full of fanciful blues legends as opposed to hard facts. You pay your money and you take your chances; buy the Columbia set if you want the real thing in the best possible sound.
