Blues artist Rory Block has been going strong since the mid-1970s, and this 2006 release proves that she hasn't lost touch with her roots. A tribute to blues legend Robert Johnson, LADY AND MR. JOHNSON has Block covering 13 of the icon's tunes, including the stone-cold classics "Cross Road Blues," "Come On In My Kitchen," and "Kind Hearted Woman Blues." It is an intriguing twist to hear a woman singing Johnson's plaintive tales of life, love, and loneliness, and Block's impressive skills as a slide guitarist and soulful vocalist are ripe for the task.
