~~Johnson's guitar picking, not half the emotional tour de force of his slide work, prods most of the spirituals rounding out his recording legacy. Late-1920s slide supplications "You'll Need Somebody on Your Bond" and "Lord, I Just Can't Keep from Crying" make the best case for purchasing this disc.
