One hundred years ago, a child was born in Mississippi a poor, African-American boy who would grow up, learn to sing and play the blues, and eventually achieve worldwide renown. In the decades after his death, he has become known as the King of the Delta Blues Singers, his music expanding in influence to the point that rock stars of the greatest magnitude the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, the Allman Brothers all sing his praise and have recorded his songs. That child was Robert Johnson. THE CENTENNIAL COLLECTION is an update of the Grammy-winning, 2-CD box set that caused a r emarkable media sensation and sold over a million copies when released in 1990. The discs will again include all 42 of Johnsons recorded tracks (including alternate takes) remastered using technological advances of the past twenty years. In addition, new essays, photographs, information and testimonials from various music legends will be included in the accompanying booklet. It is by far the most empowering body of work in American history to emerge from one solitary blues figure.
