The 29 songs that Robert Johnson recorded in various Texas hotel rooms in 1936 and 1937 are amongst the most significant and influential works in the history of blues music.
It was thus very appropriate that it was to these landmark songs that Peter Green turned when recording the two albums which have done so much to re-launch his career, 1998’s "The Robert Johnson Songbook" and 2000’s "Hot Foot Powder". These records showed a real return to form for the founder of Fleetwood Mac and one of the greatest ever white blues guitarists. The first justifiably won him a prestigious W.C.Handy Award from the Blues Foundation and the second saw his Splinter Group joined by such blues legends as Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Dr John, Hubert Sumlin and Joe Louis Walker.
The first 2 discs of this set comprise recordings of all Robert Johnson’s songs while the 3rd disc contains Johnson’s own recordings of the songs which made him a legend.
So fans will now have the opportunity to listen to the original blues sorcerer alongside one of his most talented apprentices.

In the Skies is an album by British blues rock musician Peter Green, who was the founder of Fleetwood Mac and a member from 1967–70. Released in 1979, this was his second solo album and the first after eight years of obscurity. Accompanying Green on this album were several experienced session musicians, including Snowy White, who went on to work with Pink Floyd before joining Thin Lizzy. White contributed some of the lead guitar work on the album since Green was not yet fully comfortable with his return to recording after his long break. Also present was Green's colleague and friend from his earliest bands, Peter Bardens.
