I've ever heard of Skip James. I bloody love Robert Johnson though!
i just remembered that i need to listen to this guy more...
recently got the above 'sessions' lp. its good but i like them both.
skip james is incredible
I adore Skip James and Robert Johnson and I think Killing floor blues is right up there with the best blues songs of all time.
But I think when you are comparing one to the other you need to consider the comparitive influence each one has had and look at all there music Robert Johnson isn't really my favorite bluesman song for song you would have to go Sun House, Blind Willie Mctell for that. But for his incredible guitar playing and influence gotta tip the cap to him
