One of the most influential and original blues musicians, Lonnie Johnson virtually created the modern blues guitar style on his own, sending the music off in the direction it has subsequently taken. Combining elements of jazz into his technique meant that he blurred the boundaries between the two emerging musics during the '30s, later slipping out of music only to return as an elder statesman in the 1960s. This lavishly presented 4CD set takes in all of the recordings made between 1928 and 1952 that created a blues legend and also includes comprehensive liner notes and a full discography.
