Re: The Official Robert Johnson Thread He's a fantastic musician - Sweet Home Chicago, Cross Road Blues, If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day. It's a pity he didn't get a chance to do more really. It is true that he should be even with Muddy Waters and co though, but untimely death does tend to increase popularity of musicians (look at Michael Jackson). On the Clapton album, it's very good IMO. Bit different to the way Johnson performed them, but then, Clapton is allowed to put his own touch on it. And I don't think there's anything wrong to do a cover album of your idol. Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music did a cover album of Bob Dylan, and if I ever got into the music industry (this is hypothetical, of course) I would certainly do an album of Beatles covers. Johnson deserves a tribute album just as much as Dylan and the Fab Four do, he's certainly as influential.
