GUEST,truckerdave bashing Robert Johnson (44) RE: bashing Robert Johnson 30 Sep 00


I am FROM mississippi. No one here ever heard of Robert Johnson until a few years ago, black or white. He was largely forgotten until that double CD release whenever(in 91?). Blind Willie Mctell and Blind Boy Fuller were far better in my opionion. By the way, all the transcriptions i've seen of 32.20 blues got a word wrong in them. It's supposed to be "CAPS", not "CAMPS". Someday maybe they will finally figure out "CAPS" is the southern slang word for pistol ammunition dating back to cap and ball revolvers. Thats what Kokomo Joe Arnold said in the original version that Johnson stole. If someone did that today they'd be sued for copywright infringement. Now is there anyone else that i can make hopping mad over Johnson? And yes i can play Johnsons songs, too.
