Robert Johnson The Complete Original Masters: Centennial Edition is the ultimate collector’s vinyl piece.

Housed in a lavish 10″ album book, each vinyl disc plays at 45rpm and is outfitted with reproductions of the original record labels. An additional sleeve will house a smaller book that includes a new 1,500-word essay written by Ted Gioia, Texas-based pianist and music historian, along with complete historic track annotation and discographic data.

A very unique and fun way to experience Johnson's output, not only pairing the songs as they were originally released, but replicating the method many would have handled and stored them. Too bad it is a pricey set, and of limited availability. Uses the same up to date digital masters as the other official Centennial Collection offerings, this is the best Robert Johnson will ever sound, and it is superb considering the available materials.
