Happy Birthday To Robert Johnson

May 8: It’s not easy to celebrate Robert Johnson’s birthday visually, since very few authenticated photographs of the blues legend are known to exist. So we turn to art: our image today, in honor of the 103rd anniversary of the birth of world’s most influential blues artist, is the cover of the 1970 Columbia LP release King Of The Delta Blues Singers Vol. 2. The cover is a suggestion of what Johnson’s 1936 recording sessions, made in a San Antonio hotel room, may have looked like.
