A stunning collection of artists and performances celebrate the timeless music of legendary gospel bluesman Blind Willie Johnson. From Derek Trucks’ and Susan Tedeschi’s reverent reading of Keep Your Lamp Trimmed And Burning to Lucinda Williams’ slide guitar-fueled lament in Nobody’s Fault But Mine, from Luther Dickinson’s spirited take on Bye And Bye I’m Going To See The King (with The Rising Star Fife & Drum Band) to Tom Waits’ virtual embodiment of Johnson himself on The Soul Of A Man and John The Revelator, this record is packed with incomparable recordings that speak as much to the greatness of the performers as they do the enduring legacy of Blind Willie Johnson. Featuring Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi, Cowboy Junkies, The Blind Boys Of Alabama, Sinéad O'Connor, Luther Dickinson, Maria McKee and Rickie Lee Jones.

The legendary Vocalion label had a chequered history. Formed by the Aeolian Piano Company in 1916, it took the name from their Vocalion Organ Company subsidiary. It was bought by Brunswick in 1925, but when that label was swallowed up by Warner Bros five years later it was licensed, along with Vocalion, to the American Record Corporation. Our selection here from the legendary Vocalion label spans the period from 1926 to 1940, the year before the United States went to war. Though this includes the period of the Great Depression, significant numbers of blues records were sold and Vocalion showcased a piano-based style the music business dubbed 'urban blues', distinguishing it from the Mississippi Delta country blues. With gems from the likes of Leroy Carr, Robert Johnson and Memphis Minnie, there's no doubt the classic Vocalion repertoire on this compilation was, and still is, the cream of the blues crop.
